Dino Valls

Dino Valls is born in Saragossa, Spain, a licentiate (six years Degree) in Medicine and Surgery, also a most wonderful painter. His works have been exhibited in multiple collective and individual exhibitions and he is regarded as one of the most influent Spanish painters to date. In the words of Mira Editores, Saragossa, 2001, from the essay “Dino Valls’ painting” for the monograph “Dino Valls: Ex Picturis”, we can learn that:

(…) he is a Spanish representative of a new and intriguing kind of art which is beginning to subvert some of the most cherished assumptions of 20th century Modernism, and which, in addition, radically challenges established notions about what is, and is not, avant-garde. (…) In Valls’ paintings it is the psychological situation itself which is the subject. His figures, not painted from life as I have said, earlier, are essentially vessels, containers for emotional events, which they hold up for our inspection rather as we look at liquid held in a transparent vessel.
