Multidisciplinary artist, painter, writer, poet and composer, based in southern Spain, Puche emphasizes compositional elegance and delicate use of color and light. His work seeks a balance between tradition and modern conceptualism.
Puche (b. 1972, Murcia, Spain) is an artist and writer trained at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Valencia (1994 – 2000). Further studies concluded at the Regional Institute of Visual Arts of Martinique (IRAVM) and today Campus Caraïbéen des Arts. On this French tropical island, Puche had his first individual exhibition, organized by a local dealer, and had his first contact with the world of art galleries.
The richness and natural exuberance of the landscape leave an imprint on the style, light and vitality of his paintings, which are characterized by the study of color, diversity of themes and compositional elegance. In 2001 Puche began teaching drawing and painting classes, while dedicating himself to artistic creation, musical composition, video production, literature and painting.
In 2006 he traveled to Belgium, where he lived for a few months. After this stage, he decided to complete his academic training with a Master's Degree in Management and Artistic Production at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Murcia, and with a Master's Degree in Literary Creation at the International University of Valencia. Puche composes songs under the name of Bátir Lázarus. To date, he has published a novel (Paraíso en obra, 2018) and a Poemario (Cortafuegos, 2018). His pictorial work is varied: portraits in watercolor, abstract landscapes in oil and a series of templates (stencils) complete a colorful production rich in themes.
