Julián Villafañe was born in Mérida, Venezuela (1969), the city where he lives to this day. Throughout his career as a visual artist, he has focused on different figures. His first and most emblematic pictorial production, which he conceived in the early 2000s, was dedicated to ice cream vendors. In it “the artist paid a small tribute to the Haitian immigrants who are dedicated to this trade”, comments Katherine Chacón. Later, he also considered other models, such as dolls, flowers, couples. Arte Original presents a selection of oil paintings on canvas, from his most recent creative production, where we observe that his sensibility and expressive need continues to inspire and honor everyday figures and objects.

Villafañe recreates in artworks such as Caribe and Reflejos, scenarios with human figures, food, animals, children, childhood symbols such as kites and bicycles. These characters, objects and situations coexist in the support, framed in abstract landscapes, whose compositions remind us of the panorama of a kaleidoscope, of spectra and many simultaneous levels. There are no traditional perspectives or volumes, on the contrary, it solves with faceting, overlays, geometries, textures and color. Above all, color. The artist invites us to be spectators and participants in his chromatic experimentation, associating tonalities that dialogue and generate combinations that are visually pleasurable. Its luminous, bright and expressive color palette is the protagonist. Villafañe’s informalist and contemporary proposal creates, acutely and intuitively, universes that vibrate and move due to their magical, fantastic and imaginative dimension.

Julián Villafañe has developed a solid and articulated discourse, where he harmoniously integrates his exceptional gaze of the everyday and the habitual, in an abstract plastic resolution, exquisitely colorful and free.
