August Vilella

August Vilella is considered one of the most sought after Barcelona artists abroad. His artworks have been exhibited around the world in cities such as Tokyo, Paris, Shanghai, Dubai, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Taipei, Oxford, Shenzhen and Rotterdam. In 2016 he was the winner of the Best Artist at the “Tokyo International Art Fair”. In 2017 he was awarded for the Best Innovative Art at “The Global Art Awards” of Dubai. And in 2018 he won the "International Artist Grand Prize" of Taipei and the "Chairman´s Award" in the Art Revolution Taipei where his work was chosen as the best among 4.546 candidates.

August Vilella creates oil paintings by means of a surreal intuitive method of painting. Thanks to this method and without using any previous sketches or ideas, he gives shape to his subconscious mind, in some way the process is similar to Jazz music but in painting. The result of this practice are art pieces with a very particular dreamlike aura and a magic, metaphoric, and even philosophical language, which invites the viewer to reflect. All this iconography is represented with a very refined technic, his style can remind us of old masters because he works with very small brushes, puts many slim layers of oil paint and varnish and plays with the lights and shadows. In consequence, we can see in Vilella´s artworks a very curious contrast between a very technical and elaborated style and a creative process that turns out to be completely intuitively improvised and unintentional. Thanks to that, each character that appears in his canvas become unique, and each artwork unrepeatable. All this turns each of his paintings into an Odyssey, which moves into the depths of the vast subjective ocean, and whose outcome is always unknown, different and unexpected…
