Joaquin Torrents LLado

 

BIOGRAPHY:

Spanish Painter, Joaquin Torrents Llado (1946-1993), began painting professionally at the age of 22 when he established a studio in Palma de Mallorca, an island in the west mediterranean. Using Mallorca as a base, he traveled throughout Europe, North America, and Brazil to obtain subject matter for his painting.

During this period, his style shifted from abstract to concrete. A few times every year since 1972, he holds exhibitions, concentrating on portraits, in Europe and North and South America. Llado is now highly acclaimed as a master of modern portraiture, surpassing Velasquez of the seventeenth century.

Llado's technique incorporates the three aspects of Velasquez light and shadow, chiaroscuro and impressionism as well as the atmospheric perspective of Leonardo. In this way he has created a world of landscape painting which is both historic and yet alive.
