Gabriel Grun’s Erotic Paintings

Gabriel Grun, born in 1978 in Buenos Aires, is an Argentinian obscure figurative painter based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. His renaissance/baroque like approach explores the realms of sexuality, fantasy, and nature in an originative way.

Argentina – 

Gabriel Grun works in the classical manner, constructing his oil paintings with care and an inquiring curiosity for the past master`s methods. He tries to acquire not only the technical know-how but also to learn and incorporate the pictorial syntax of the great painters he admires, and with this particular language, which he considers not spent, pertinent and still useful, he tries to communicate personal and evidently contemporary messages. Grun believes in the capacity of an artist to connect with all of art history, and in the existence of certain holes in it which can be filled, certain works that should be done, that are missing, things Dürer or Holbein just did not find enough time to do. His vision is thus that of the possibility of continuing that big lineage of painters, of the importance of achieving certain paintings though not matter what excuses, exhibitions, galleries, commissions, whatever the road to get down to making these possible and somehow necessary works. Grun is attracted to the elements of the classical canon, the figure, landscape and a few draps, architecture is not too present but elements of the still-life do appear. Grun began his career in Argentina, is now settled in Spain and his works are scattered all around the globe, having aroused the interest of a diversified group of collectors.
