About Oscar Sancho Nin
For me the color black represents magnetism, power, elegance, and an opacity, which with the contrast of white or other colours emphasize the intensity of form. My paintings are often inspired by the dark and mystery, the past and the contemporarity. I work too in color... For me color transmits the soul of a painting, and adds more sense to the themes that I paint. Use of color, contrast and also the composition are never left to fate in my paintings, it´s often very calculated. The materials, which I work in, are acrylic on canvas, and I like to paint portraits, enigmatic forms with a mixture of abstraction. For me they are archetypes. I never stop experimenting. I like to try with different themes, or different styles, always in evolution; I am not that kind of person that bores of repeating always the same formula. My influences are Goya, Francis Bacon, and Picasso, all the great contemporary masters. Anyway over the influences prevails my own approach.
