JOSEP UCLÉS (Badalona, 1952 – La Roca del Vallès, 12 de setembre).
Spanish painter and graphic artist, Josep Uclés is one of the most representative artists in the European New Figuration. An outstanding fact of his artistic career is the participation in the famous exhibition of catalan contemporary art “Seny i Rauxa” in 1978 in Paris, at the Center George Pompidou. The plastic and esthetic singularity of his creations, with his critic and independent personal temper, produced an unmistakable mark that keep the artist apart from temporary styles and ephemeral artistic market. His work, at the beginning obscure, mysterious and with an incisive social criticism, has evaluated a keen irony, more colorfull and poetic, where the human figure is always the main point.
