Josep Guinovart

Birth placeBarcelona, Spain Birth date1927

Josep Guinovart was born in Barcelona on March 20, 1927. In his early stage, he painted simple themes of a popular nature, treated with an extraordinary quality of drawing and a striking sense of color, which later acquired social intention. He gradually abandoned representation and forms a new universe where matter and elements become their language.

In 1954, together with other artists, they founded the ephemeral Taüll group, which brings together the creators of the avant-garde of those years. He participates in the Hispano-American biennials, São Paulo (1952 and 1957), Alexandria (1955) and Venice (1958 and 1962).
