“I consider myself a Classical Realist painter with love for detail, I work realistically though not photographically. I like to leave my brush strokes visible and the imitation of reality is only apparent. This is where the true magic in painting is to be found for me. And I love to unify past and present in the making of my works of art: taking benefit from all the tools that a 21st Century artist has got at his disposal, from the most innovative 3D sculpting to the oldest traditional painting technique, is the way to go.”
Gabriel Picart was born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, in 1962, where he still lives and works. His family lived in the concierge’s pavilion of the world famous Park Güell. Gabriel spent his childhood in the building that the great Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi had designed to emulate the witch’s house in Brothers Grimm’s fairytale Hansel and Gretel. Within an artistic milieu such as this, he would soon develop an interest in art.
By the time he was a teenager, his parents had rented the other pavilion on the opposite side of the main gate, the one with an oddly shaped tower bearing on its top a double cross. This well known building had been Antoni Gaudi’s studio during the construction of the park. In the very same room that architect Gaudi executed his designs, Picart set up his first atelier.
