Oil On Canvas
Artist: Fernando Davila
Fernando Davila is a very accomplished artist born in Colombia, who has achieved recognition for his mastery of figurative paintings. His extensive work has been exhibited in South America, Europe and the U.S.
He was chosen and personally invited by Maestro Fernando Botero to participate in the XXIX Prix International de L’Art Contemporain in Monte Carlo, Monaco.
Davila was recognized by the Colombian Congress in 1999 with the “Orden de la Democracia” for his contribution to the Arts.
He has published two hard cover books and many catalogues about his paintings with written texts by well known Art Critics and Art Historians such as; Eduard J. Sullivan, Pierre Restany, Ana Maria Escallon, Georges Gomez y Caceres, German Rubiano Caballero.
His paintings have been auctioned in Christie’s and Sotheby’s New York since 1988, and most recently in Los Angeles at MOLAA auctions 2006-07.
With a beautiful mixture of softness and story Fernando Davila's paintings make us feel calm just by looking at them. There's a palpable tenderness in this painting.
Even a silent pose, with a static composition, can be made to feel like it’s in a state of movement and emotional complexity.
In "Impulsos" we see just that. It almost looks like a still from a film noir, with its moody color pallette, light and shadows.
