Pablo Rey Biography by Elda Vara, 2/2015

Pablo Rey was born in 1968 into a family of artists, his father being the well known realist painter Gabino. He took his first steps in art at the age of 13 although he would not discover his real vocation for painting until he was 18.

Between 1987 and 1993, he made various journeys throughout Europe, to Paris, Switzerland, Venice, Rome, Milan, Brussels, Florence, Amsterdam, Munich, Vienna, Budapest, Prague, with the principal aim of visiting museums, art fairs and collections.

In 1994, he got a degree in fine art from Barcelona University and in 1996 went to live and work in New York, settling in the post-industrial district of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, at a time when this neighbourhood was becoming discovered, (because of its large run-down factories, alongside cheap rented accommodation), by young emerging artists of all nationalities, where they set up their studios. During these years, Williamsburg would become one of the parts of New York, with the highest number of artists in the whole city. It was in this exciting melting pot where our artist would create, paint, and make fundamental decisions about the direction his work would take in the future.

Almost as soon as he arrived he made friends with the Spanish painters Fernando Molero and Alex de Fluviá, the North American conjuror Christopher Baxter, the Dutch architect Mariska Van Dalfsen, and the New York painter Luke Gray, with whom he would not only share a studio but also a variety of experiences, revealing conversations and late-night parties.

In 1997 he took part in the “The Grammercy International Art Fair” of New York, with the Pierogi 2000 Gallery from Brooklyn.

In 1998 he was selected alongside Larry Deyab, Milo Magnany, Tony Martin, Jan Mulder, Jacques Roch, Paulien Lethen, Larry Webb and other NY artists to participate in the exhibition “New Tide” in the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center of New York, an exhibition which later travelled to the headquarters of the Netherlandche Bank of Amsterdam. This same year he met Juan Uslé with whom he would take part, along with Francisco Leiro, Peyo Irazu, Victoria Civera, Pedro Mora and other artists, in the documentary film “98 in NY”, made by Canal +, about Spanish artists working in New York.

In 1999 he travelled by car from New York to Texas, a journey of two months which took him down the whole of the east coast of the United States, to the Florida quays, and from there across the plains of Texas, passing through the artistic and musical world of New Orleans. On his return he exhibited his writings and travel diaries, in the Holland Tunnel Art Projects gallery of NY.

In the year 2000, he decided to return to Spain, and moved into the Santa Catalina district of Barcelona where he lived for two years. In the year 2002, as well as working in the family studio in Barcelona, he also opened a studio in the town of Sant Feliu de Guíxols on the Costa Brava, where he spent long periods of time.

In Sant Feliu, he met the painter Xavier Ruscalleda, the sculptor Alberto de Udaeta, and the engraver and painter Marzo-Mart, and also re-established contact with an old friend, the painter and curator, poet and writer or as he would prefer to describe himself; “artistable”, Genís Cano. Through the architect and cultural agitator Joaquín Pérez, he formed a deep friendship with the painters Alex Pallí-Vert, Luís Trullenque, Gerardo San Martín, François Egly, as well as the sculptor Nei Albertí, and the poet Carles Lapuente.

All these active participants of long nocturnal gatherings, a variety of gastronomic reunions, diverse celebrations, in other words, were unforgettable dinner parties of all types, in all of which I (Elda Vara) also took part in and can testify to.

In the year 2002 he met the gallery owner Carmen Tatché, with whom he exhibited on various occasions, and in 2004, along with the painter from Huesca Luís Trullenque, put together the exhibition titled “Two painters on the same canvas” a four-handed collaboration which was shown in the spring of that year in the Castle of Benedormiens in Castell d’ Aro.

In the year 2005 he did a post-graduate exhibition at the University of Barcelona; "Painting and Reality" with his friend the photographer Andreu Catalá-Roca and in the year 2008, he made a series of paintings titled “Espacio Regulador”, which was shown in the gallery Km7 of José Luis Pascual.

In 2009 he took part in the foundation of multidimensional art collective named Nubolâris, with artists; Isabel Chavarria, Xavi Lloses, Nei Albertí, Alex Pallí, Muriel and Carles Lapuente. In the winter of that year, moved his studio to the old hospital in Sant Feliu de Guíxols, where he remained six months to prepare a six hands project with painters Alex Pallí and Luis Trullenque, a collaboration that will result in Conjuncions  exhibition which will be exhibited in the ancient monastery of Sant Feliu de Guíxols in the summer of 2009 and in La Casa de Cultura  of Girona in the spring of 2011.

In 2010, he presented the exhibition "Los blancos visibles" in the Hangar Heribert Torres de Sant Feliu de Guíxols. Within this was organized the symposium, El arte y lo espiritual, with the participation of the musician Pedro Burruezo, playwright Silvia Ferrando, psychologist Ana Gimeno, poet Carles Lapuente and theologian Ramón Rosal.

In 2012, he made a stay of several months in southern France, from the Languedoc-Rusellon to Provence, soaking in the landscape, cuisine and culture of this area, from that he developed his series of paintings entitled "Estasis." They will be exhibited in the summer of 2013 at the Fundació  Casa Irla of Sant Feliu de Guíxols.

In 2013, he decided to return to the city of his birth, where he reopened his old Barcelona´s studio
