Javier Montesol

The visual and the vital occupy an equally central place in the life of Javier Ballester, Montesol (Barcelona 1952), to the point of merging. His desire to understand his surroundings crystallizes in his painting. But what is it that surrounds Montesol? What do you want to capture in your work? Like so many in the contemporary era, Montesol has had a transhumant experience: he has had several lives largely linked to the experience of different places. In their case, the issue has gone beyond adapting successively to more or less differentiated local languages ​​or traditions. The different "lives" of Montesol, as manifested by his artistic production, have been determined by the historical, cultural or social circumstances that have framed the cities in which he has distributed his existence.
