Goyan - Artist Profile

Goyan
Goyan's work is largely inspired by his love of the sea,
although he does sometimes also paint inland. His
vibrant, highly textured oils present a bold and
distinctive interpretation of the Spanish coast, and his
overtones of imagination make the finished work
intensely expressive. He has a spontaneous, even
forceful style, which combines with his breadth of vision
to give powerful portrayals of each scene.
Goyan was born in Valencia in 1959 and studied at the
San Carlos School. A self-taught painter, he spent his
early life perfecting his technique in oil painting; he was,
and still is, a frequent visitor to many of Spain's great
galleries, where he observes the work and absorbs the
influences of other artists that he admires.
Goyan's work can be found in both individual and
collective exhibitions in many of Spain's major cities
including Madrid, Seville, Granada and his home,
Valencia. His introduction to the UK has been greeted
with enthusiasm on the art market.
