About Jaume Muñoz

Born in Barcelona in 1977. Poet and painter.

In my work I explore the expressive possibilities of both abstract painting and figuration, settling on the crossroads of chaos and order.

My working process is based on free abstract improvisation (often rock- or jazz-infused).

On a second stage, I work with lines and textures in order to create shapes and movements, in search for human figures.

The piece of writing that accompanies the work is a verse of poetry, a line from a song, a bit of conversation... whatever captures the moment in which I am creating the work.

Evocation is the essential aspect of my creations.

Education

I have a literary and linguistic background, and I am self-taught as a painter. My learning process began in different creative environments, especially in Barcelona, Cairo and Castelnaudary.

Being able to work side by side with other artists has allowed me to learn hands-on. And this process is never-ending.
