Alex Voinea

Alex Voinea, in the vein of the great expressionists, unleashed a vibrant display of acrylic pigments upon the canvas. The mesmerizing gradient serves as a backdrop for the artist's textural manipulations, imbuing the artwork with a sense of sculptural relief. One could say that the painting seems to burst forth from the two-dimensional plane, much like a bas-relief carving springing from its background. The result is a mesmerizing interplay of color, texture, and form that transcends the boundaries of traditional painting.
Another great painting in #Matiz_bcn🎨



"Human" is a painting that is part of the series of pastel heads on paper by Simon Cruz. If you look more closely you will notice the second monkey head that plays with the right eye, enclosing a new space between the colors.

"Jordi Artigas"

This composition has a harmony of colors, tangible intentions and clear and precise paint brush strokes.

This is the third painting of the pomegranate color series. This painting with a minimalist finish concentrates on the uniform dynamic form. The white fabric of the canvas, the negative space, becomes almost as important as the pomegranate color itself.


"No name"

Inspired by experiments with liquid paint on vibrating surfaces, Voinea’s intention throughout his various recent series of abstract works has remained the same, to capture and freeze a vibrant and colorful moment in time and space.

Voinea consistently expresses his passionate and inquisitive character in his colorful abstract paintings, adventurous works that push the bounds of creativity with experimentation, brilliant colors and striking forms. Voinea’s oeuvre, in summary, is visceral, striking and powerful, living and organic.

Alex Voinea’s paintings have been exhibited in  Europe (Brussels, Paris, Milan, London, Amsterdam, and Stockholm),  and the United States in New York and Los Angeles. 



"...The experience of immigrants from oppressed countries in Europe can vary greatly depending on factors such as skin color or surname. The path towards social and economic integration is often a long and difficult one, and can be further complicated by a lack of equity..."
The Mexican artist Simon Cruz is known for creating oil paintings full of symbolism and subtlety. One of the defining characteristics ins this painting is the use of an orange-red background, which serves as a striking backdrop for the subtle details in primary colors that are meticulously incorporated into the painting.


"Los 90’s"

"...Esta serie de fotografías es un homenaje a todos aquellos artistas que llenaron el estudio de color. Música, plumas, lentejuelas…fueron la tónica diaria de aquellos años dorados…"

La temática expuesta era parte de la vida misma y de nuestra gente. Poniendo el acento en el interés humano, en una ciudad viva de siempre y donde las fotografías dotan a su vez de un contenido social.

more coming soon!

The harlequin green brush stroke and the mixture of primary colors highlights playfully the white canvas.



Tango is a new composition by palma alvariño in#Matiz_bcn. Using a palette of browns, the artist, achieves a composition that roots in the space. The choice of a dark goldenrod brown as the main color gives a clear contrast but at the same time a pleasant and peaceful view. Making it a great #artcollection



Continuing with our street-art theme we now show Simón Cruz. A multidisciplinary artist who works from graffiti to oil canvas. He borrows ideas from artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Picasso and his own Mexican heritage with which he captures new concepts.

Street art in barcelona has a long history, from the mid 80's to the present, from innovation to rejection and finally to "tolerance". Nowadays, after the rise of street art thanks to "super" artists like#banksyor#shepardfairey, urban art is no longer demonized, but still leaves many questions open in how Barcelona should approach it.

Carlos Delgado´s work now exposed in barcelona!

more info coming soon!


Maleza is born from the desire to reconnect spontaneously with nature, and as a celebration of my land. Weed (maleza) can be read as an unwanted but also a free willed element; less controlled and intervened, natural, and always there. Weed represents the wild and all the natural instincts that revive again, once we allow them spaces for it. Like the plants that grow on the sidewalks, nature — both around us and within oneself — will find a way to emerge, resist, and succeed.



Alberto Ruiz Villar´s shapes, forms and different use of materials makes for a unique and marvelous acquisition for the buyer. the Spray paint, graphite and gesso give a subtle relief on the canvas.
