Rafael Canogar

Madrid, Spain

"He is a Spanish painter, one of the main representatives of abstract art in Spain. Disciple of Daniel Vázquez Díaz (1948-1953), in his first works he found a way to reach the vanguards and, very soon, to study the abstraction deeply.

He initially used a scultopictorical technique: with his hands, he scratched or squeezed the paste that vibrated on flat colored backgrounds. It was a painting in which the initial gesture comes directly from the heart. At this point, Canogar embodied the best of painting material."
