Biography from Odon Wagner Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

One of the most creative figurative painters of today, Joan Beltran Bofill was born near Barcelona, Spain in 1934 and has lived in Catalonia all of his life.  He studied at the Escuela Superior de Artes de San Jordi and then Escuala de Artes y Oficio Casa Lonja where several artists of the Catalan School, including Picasso, had also studied.

While based in Mallorca during his military service, he met the great Catalan painter, Anglada Camarasa, who was an inspiration to him. He also came face to face with the Mallorcan landscape, which has since had such a significant influence on his work. One of the paintings of that period won a prize in the First Barcelona Press Exhibition and was purchased by The Barcelona Museum.

With a solid background in drawing, colour theory, and composition, Bofill set out to pursue a career in art in 1972, and has since devoted himself entirely to painting.  His entire professional life has really been an exploration of the effect of light in Mediterranean culture.  The idea of space and the use of filtered light exemplify his work today.  Moreover, he brings to his art a lifelong interest in classical figure painting as he champions the rebirth of beauty.

Mallorca, where much of his painting is done, provides the idyllic conditions that he reflects so masterfully in his compositions. Travel, too, has played an important part in his development. The museums of Madrid enabled him to study Goya, Rubens, Bosch, Dürer and Boticelli, to mention a few of the masters he admires. Visits to Paris and London further enlarged his knowledge of past and present masters.

In viewing Bofill’s paintings, it is evident that he is answering a challenge, fighting a duel with light. In his endeavours to give it shape and to make it vibrate on his canvas, he ungrudgingly lavishes all his faculties, all his technical resources that he has acquired over the years.

Dating back to 1972, Bofill has had one-man exhibitions in Palma, Barcelona, Valencia, Madrid, Monaco, Paris, New York, Chicago, Palm Beach and Tokyo.
