Yago Hortal is a very young artist but very compromised with the most classic artistic media: painting. The act of painting itself is to Hortal a very valuable concept, which involves the whole world of art.The canvas is to Yago Hortal a scenario in which the artist projects forms and structures full of vivid colours, which come from a mix of conscious acts and randomness. Which also characterizes Hortal’s work is the fact that the canvas is not a limit for the artist, in the contrary, he excedes and gets over it, making the spectator want to touch the painting, as if the paint was trying to reach him. So Hortal does not only paint forms and colours, but also creates sensations.
The talent of this very young artist was noticed from the beginning, when he was awarded with the Prize to Young Painting a year after he greaduated from Fine Arts. His works have been exhibited all over Spain and also in the rest of Europe and the United States.
