García Orell, Joan
Juan García Orell (Palma, 1936 - 2008)
Juan García Orell started in art in a self-taught way and it was not until his middle age that he gave free rein to his imagination, creativity and visual skills. His great interest in art motivated him to experiment constantly with the new trends, reflecting in the canvas with his palette of colors a diverse range of interests, ranging from the figurative painting of his beginnings, full of flowers and bright colors, to the artistic abstraction, expressed not only through colors, but also textures. His optimism and vivacity, allowed him to perceive those small details that give life a special color, allowing him to deepen artistic experimentation without any fear, which he later fused with his experiences, to transform them into pictorial works.
