Florencio Galindo (Ávila, 1947)

The painting Florencio Galindo (Adanero, Avila), an artist who has found a space and a perfectly own time for its creation, always moves in this duality between the ethical and the aesthetic, between the dirt and the diaphanous, between the turbid and extraordinarily defined. A poetic realism that trembles in its unique concept of beauty and that has led him to become the most prominent painter of the so-called second generation of Spanish realism.
