Galeria Carles Taché

Robert Llimós

Barcelona, 1943
Robert Llimós has had a lengthy career as a painter and sculptor that began at the end of the sixties with the Nueva Figuración (1965-1968). Between 1969-1973 he went through a period of conceptual experimentation to then return to figurative painting, placing a great emphasis on colour. His work has been the object of solo exhibitions in the Museum Bochum, Germany (1994), Galería Alejandro Sales, Barcelona (2009); Fundació Vila Casas, Barcelona (2010). Amongst his group exhibitions highlights are his unofficial participation in the Kassel Documenta 5 and, in that same year, the Encuentros of Pamplona. He has participated in group exhibitions in institutions such as; the Museo del Barrio, New York (1976 and 1978); the Fundació Miró, Barcelona (1979, 1983 and 1992); the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (1996, 1997, 2005); the Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid (2004, 2009) and the Fundació Suñol, Barcelona (2010), amongst many others. Since 2009 Llimós has dedicated himself to the production of work related to extra-terrestrial beings and flying objects. In 1994, the Generalitat de Catalonia awarded him the Premi de Arts Plàsticas. In Barcelona some of his public sculptures can be seen, amongst them: Marc (1997) in the Olympic Village and Mirastels (2006) a floating sculpture in the port of Barcelona.
He has collaborated with the Galeria Carles Taché by lending his work Traginer (1987) for the exhibition Tribute to catalan contamporary art.
