Biography of Fran Recacha
“Art is a rationale, a way to communicate and expose all sorts of ideas but under certain conditions and
formal aesthetic. My work is expressed through a figurative language that looks to the past with the
intention to learn from the great masters and work in a consistent technique but with a contemporary
view. Sometimes, it will be conceptually complex but always aesthetically open to most viewers. To build
something of value requires the observation and study of the objects, landscapes and figures. The proper
use of form, light, color and perspective are essential to achieve a personal plastic language, clear
and visually powerful.”
Fran Recacha was born in Badalona (Barcelona), Spain in 1976. He studied Arts and Crafts in Pau Gargallo
school at Badalona, Barcelona. In 2001, he was degree in Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona
in 2001. Since then he has exhibited in various galleries and art centers of Spain, Andorra, France and UK,
and their work is numerous private collections all over.
