Lino Lago was born in 1973 in Redondela, in Spain.

Lino Lago has always been a painter. From an early age, he dedicates him to his vocation.

When he returns to university, he will be deeply shocked by the idea of «death» of painting,

which has spread over twenty years in contemporary art. Since then he has been tirelessly

questioning his status as an artist and his production.

Since 2015, the artist expresses his questions through two séries.

The first «Fake Abstract» confronts the minimalism of a monochrome with a detail of a masterpiece.

The overlay is unveiled by the trace of a child’s finger that would have erased the second layer of paint,

revealing a look, a mouth. With a humor that borders on the absurd, Lino puts in tension the

concept of beauty, in the aesthetic sense of the term. On the one hand, the canon sought by the

classic masters takes hold of the woman and brush it in details until splendor, on the other

the modernism of the 1970s seeks beauty in an «art that excludes the superfluous «(Carl André).

This juxtaposition creates a vibratory effect and raises the question of what beauty is today.

The second series, Pintura sobre Pintura, leaves more room for the master canvas. The viewer

must move away to understand the superposition. Painted in negative, a dog’s head holds in its

fangs the classic beauty. The beast eats the beautiful.

Lino Lago seems to be accompanied by the works of the old masters to understand and

apprehend contemporary issues. As if asking us to reconsider them, he paints them through a

keyhole, creating a whole new attraction. This fragmentation of the portrait opens our eyes to

multiple interpretations.

Lino Lago is an international renown artist. His paintings are in several public and private collections.
