Artist of the moment……..Antonio Llorens

Antonio Llorens was born in Montevideo, Uruguay in the year 1920 and was among the foremost painters of Latin America working in an Abstract style. For his artistic education Llorens attended the Circulo de Bellas Artes located in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Llorens went on to found his own group of Abstract artists of Uruguay.

The artist was also an avid painter of murals completing many public and private works over his lengthy career.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Antonio Llorens passed away in 1995.

Llorens had a great sense of color but what I appreciate most is his sense of design. He uses shapes we are all familiar with, yet always seems to include some organic shapes to keep the viewers eye interested.

Though it isn’t Op Art, it definitely has some Op Art characteristics as his works often seem to be in motion. His choice of colors used always enhance his bold shapes. Very elegant abstract art that if I were to compare to a modern artist, I would Llorens reminds me of Rex Ray.
