Robert Llimós is an excellent product of the Academy who has gone through all the avant-garde to return to the origins: painting or depicting what is seen rather than what is felt. “Sharp clarity” said Santos Torroella of his work. Manolo Vázquez Montalbán recorded and remembered it in a large text on the artist.
Llimós’s long career began in childhood, on painting outings with his father. He engaged in a passionate and relentless exploration of the Zeitgeist, the spirit of the times, with the honesty of an ancient craft, with its written and unwritten laws, learned and consciously defended. Llimós work always has a primitive charm, a security of certainties, and a poetry as touching as it is brave.
