Xevi Solá

Xevi Sola Serra is a Spanish painter working with figuration from a bold and powerful perspective. The characters he depicts are unique, rare and beautiful, each one of them captured in a modest and intimate moment. His works, far from showing just what is there at plain sight, capture a feeling, a sensation that is there and that creates a tacit bond between the onlooker and the painter.

Wearing colorful and eye-catching attires, the people portrayed in his artworks are made using colorful strokes that tend to create even more deepness in their looks and highlight their intriguing and captivating poses. Xevi’s work serves as a reminder of the beauty in boldness and rarity, and how figurative art can still be edgy and aligned with our times.

 

Education

Xevi Solà attended the School of Art and Design in Olot, Girona, before continuing his studies at the University of Barcelona, where he received an additional Fine Arts degree with special distinction in 2007. Solà currently lives and works in Barcelona, Spain.
