OLOT, 1935-2006 Danés Jordi
Danésjordi synthesizes, but never imposes himself on the formal reality he paints.
Skillful with drawing, creates an atmosphere of neo-romanticism.
At the age of twelve, he entered the School of Fine Arts in his hometown where he was a pupil of Pere Gussinyé and Martí Casadevall. This training was expanded thanks to the numerous trips he made to the main museums of Europe paying great attention to the new currents that opened paths.
His first exhibition dates back to 1953, so that more than fifty years of dedication to art have been a militant in the forefront of watercolor. He founded the Santjordi workshop to innovate religious images in the world of saints’ workshops in Olot, to which he gave a more stylized air.
During the seventies, and until his last days, he began a great exhibition career both in our country and abroad. He was awarded several prizes, such as J. Civil in the Watercolor Biennial of Barcelona and the Gold Medal of the Association of Watercolor Painters of Barcelona. Of his extensive bibliography we can highlight Olot, bird of autumn, the painters of the Costa Brava today or the Living Encyclopedia of Catalan Painting and Sculpture.
Danésjordi synthesizes, but never imposes himself on the formal reality he paints. His works have the tinkle of the one that exists by itself. Build the paintings from a beautician base. Skillful with drawing, creates an atmosphere of neo-romanticism.
