Galeria Carles Taché

Joan Hernández Pijuan

Barcelona, 19331-2005
He studied at the Llotja school, at the School of Arts and Crafts, at the School of Fine Arts of Sant Jordi in Barcelona, and later studied engraving and lithography in Paris. He has numerous awards, among them the National Prize of Plastic Arts of Madrid (1981), the Cross of Sant Jordi by the Generalitat de Catalunya (1985) and the National Graphic Art Prize (2004).
In his first exhibitions he shows an expressionist style and an existential resonance. He was one of the founders of the Silex Group with Carles Planell, Eduard Alcoy i Lázaro, and Josep Maria Rovira i Requesón. After his studies in Paris he adopted a geometric figuration where solitary elements stand out on backgrounds and plain fields of strips of gray and green colors including mathematical elements such as grids, suggesting a magical atmosphere.
Galería Carles Taché has included his painting Núvol blanc (1991) in the exhibition Tribute to catalan contamporary art.
