Yago Hortal is a Berlin based artist who was born in Barcelona in 1983 and graduated from the University of Barcelona in 2001 with a Bachelors in Fine Art. The colours used in his paintings are incredible and diverse, the techniques he uses to apply and blend these colours creates images that look very superficial: almost as if they are computer generated. There is a fluidity to Yago's paintings that brings the element of movement in to his art, the focus of the viewers eye is drawn horizontally across or down the painting creating smooth relaxing journeys or deathly drops separated by harsh lines. These paintings are truly abstract and LIQUORICE loves that this leaves them so open to interpretation whilst also seeming as if they are solely designed to be aesthetically pleasing.
