Born in 1968, Ignacio Burgos has produced a considerable oeuvre, abundant, diverse, fascinating, and essentially modern, deeply rooted in the tremendous spiritual current of eternal Spanish painting, from Zurbarán to Goya, from El Greco to Picasso.
A noble gaze upon the vast expanse of the drama of humankind, humility before the abyss of time, Burgos’ works reveal themselves as the painterly union of vital force and immobile silence with the brightness of a waking dream.
