ARTIST CATALOGUE / J
Born in Santander in 1941, Joaquin Capa is a Spanish post-war and contemporary painter and print-maker. He studied at the School of Fine Arts, Madrid, and went to train in Paris and Rome. Capa also maintains a close relationship with India and the contemporary art scene there, as an artist and as a visiting professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Baroda.
Working extensively with colour, Capa explores a vocabulary that transitions from the abstract to the seemingly instinctive in his work. A pronounced sense of space and movement are characteristic of his prints, creating a distinctive experiential universe that speaks in colour and form.
He has exhibited his work extensively, and these find home in prestigious collections such as at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Museum of Abstract Art, Cuenca, and Centro de Arte Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid among others. He was awarded scholarships by the Juan March Foundation and the Spanish Ministry of Culture. He also won the first Indian International Biennale held in Bhopal (1989).
He lives and works in Madrid, Spain
