 The artist in his studio

The artist in his studio

Agustí Puig had his artistic awakening in the mid-1980s, a period of effervescent activity in the field of art in Catalonia, Spain and Europe as a whole. A time when artists all over Europe were staging a creative reaction to the conceptual art movements that had dominated the 1970s and had announced the death of pictorial art. Puig's generation proposed a new, expressive, affirmative, monumental art that did not ignore tradition.


“…the joyous affirmation of the play of the world and of the innocence of becoming…”

~Jacques Derrida


Puig's painting presented itself as the heir to the predominant styles in European modern avant-garde art: German Expressionism (from Munch to Kiefer), Spanish Informalism (represented by Tàpies, Millares, Clavé) and French and Catalan Oneirism (Joan Miró).

~Albert Mercadé, Artistic Director of the Fundacio Arranz-Bravo
