Informel art by Vidal Toreyo – EMERGENCY series

Vidal Toreyo – EMERGENCY abstract art

Vidal Toreyo practices informel art by definition and belief. He sometimes speaks of his art as still lifes. But they are far from reflecting typical objects. Informel art in its essence and areas of inspiration, does not reflect the subject directly. All elements of technical painting, such as rhythm, color, contrast, value, are used to communicate the content indirectly. The artist creates his own individual world description system by means of which he presents his intentions in the form of an image …

Vidal selects from the catalog of his tools of communication and means of expression those that best convey emotions. He is practicing informel art as an idea> This distinguishes such art from non-abstract art is the lack of a realistic presentation of objects. They can appear as a topic. They are a pretext for creating a work. But they don’t dominate, they don’t appropriate perception. 

What is informel art?

In terms of meaning, informel art can cover almost anything. These are both emotions and considerations of social problems. Also philosophical concepts, and cultural problems. These may be topics of interest to the author, about which he usually does not talk directly. Vidal Toreyo creates very consistently. Each series of paintings has a clear idea. It is preceded by studies. Sketches, notes are a process that accompanies a creative artist.

How to evaluate informel art? Vidal Toreyo says: “Yes, you can judge if a picture is good. But you have to study a million beforehand. ” So, not everyone can judge a work of art quite well. In Toreyo’s paintings, no object is unambiguous. At first glance, it may seem that such art is one great chaos, in which masterpieces are mixed with random effects, stains created by painters aspiring to be creators. What counts, however, is a unique approach to art, searching for your own way, and the ability to translate a concept into specific artwork.
