Joaquín Capa

joaquin-capaColor is the cornerstone of the work of established Spanish Abstract artist Joaquín Capa. Informal, sometimes automatic gestures give a sense of space and movement to his atmospheric graphic prints.

 Joaquín Capa was born in Santander, Spain in 1941. He studied at the Fine Arts Academy in Madrid as well as in Rome and Paris. The Spanish artist has been spending meaningful time in India, organizing workshops on printing techniques. In 1989 he received the award at the first  Indian International Biennial in Bhopal.

Capa’s work can be found in prestigious museums and collections such as The Abstract Museum, Cuenca; Centro de Arte Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid; Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), New York; Los Angeles County  Museum of Art.
