José Benmayor

Born in March 1985, his father is a painter and was in charge of introducing him to the subject since he was a child. He studied art at the Finis Terrae University and recently graduated with a degree in Painting. Benmayor also paints canvases, graffiti and makes animations, in his free time he also plays music. He has work through several workshops of which Julio Prado can be mentioned. He has participated in several collective exhibitions. His references are in a mixture of the cartoons that he saw as a child, and the painters who flooded his life were Basquiat, Guston, Otto Dix, among others. As far as painting is concerned, José tries to make people feel situations with recognisable symbols, that the spectator feels close to them, so that a story can be made.
