The dualities of photography and painting, figuration and abstraction are integrated in Darío Villalba’s body of work. “The restlessness and curiosity that characterizes Villalba has led him to conciliate different plastic techniques in a syncretic way, introducing both photographic images as fragments of real materials in the field of painting, endowing it with three dimensionality and mobility,” explains art critic Javier Maderuelo. About his choice of subject matters, the artist has a preference for themes around the human condition, especially for people in helpless situations like the homeless, the poor or the insane.
