Artist Pablo Jurado Ruiz, born in Málaga, Spain in 1973.
By means of a complex and highly detailed impressionist technique known as stippling, “pointillism” or the art of drawing and shading by using small dots of black ink Pablo Jurado Ruiz tells stories deeply rooted in his soul, metaphors of his own vital experience and his surroundings. His creative concept is mainly based on the human body furnished with keen and delicate details.
As a child Pablo recalls spending endless hours at his grandfather’s studio observing how he, an impressionist painter, brought paintings to life. “I scribbled figures on papers and tried to imitate him staining a small canvas he always kept for me. At times I would read comics that he also kept for me and created my own ones”.
Back from those early days possibly derive Pablo’s artistic references: Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Van Gogh, Sorolla, Picasso, Antonio López…. coexisting with comics authors like Milo Manara, Enki Bilal, Richard Corben o Moebius.
His formal artistic training includes the School of Arts and Crafts in Málaga and a bachelor of arts in graphic design and advertising at the School of Techniques and Methods of Design of Málaga.
It is in this period when he begins to work with various techniques. He draws with pencil and inks, he pains with acrylic, oil, watercolour, on paper, canvas, table, etc. His curiosity causes him to continuously experiment and express himself through comics, posters, even audio-visuals.
Pablo believes that life keeps placing him in front of forms and circumstances from which he attains inspiration. This is how, being barely twenty years old, the opportunity to travel to Anchorage (Alaska) arises and thus his first real foray into the art world. For the first time, he paints large paintings, combining various techniques. This trip changes radically both his personal and artistic life, it is a fundamental growth which expands his vision in every way.
So when he returns to Málaga after a period of time, although Mediterranean light and culture always captivates him and accompany him everywhere, he feels again the need to depart. This time fate brings him to Manchester (England), where he paints murals and begins working with photography.
When he returns to Spain, he settles in Madrid working in advertising, first as art director and later as creative director.
Through almost a decade he develops and works more intensively on photography and inspired from the visual language of black and white, he takes up again the paper and the ink, a format which allows him to convey his ideas in a more clear and dramatic way. As in "Overdose is Coming" (2013), painted as an overwhelmed reaction to the destruction of the bombings in Syria, which shows a naked and helpless human witnessing the devastation of war. Or "Summer 2050" (2014) in which he enquires whether that is the future of our children?
Most recently his commitment to nature, equality and ultimately freedom is present in works as "Hidden" (2014), the magnificent "Restraints" (2014), "The Close Encounter" (2015) or "Nomads Collection" (2013).
Pablo speaks of the deepest feelings in a metaphorical way as if it were a dream, a glance, a gesture or a scene: "Resistance", "Pure Nature", "The Deepest Sleep" (2013). And regardless the added difficulties he paints children; children whose faces flawlessly express what he as an artist wants to convey: “My own vision reflected in childhood, the most important period in life, when your being that will accompany us the rest of our lives is formed”. Furthermore, Pablo loads his children with the increasing burden that life imposes upon us through the years, "Belongings 1 & 2" (2014) are a good illustration of that.
But the work of this artist is constantly evolving as demonstrated by his latest works "The Bright Side" or "You are lost little girl" so it is expected that he will continue surprising us.
