Virtually everything Vidal Toreyo paints is just his intimate diary.
The painting layer of Toreyo’s art
Paintings made in small formats skilfully use sounding color with characteristic light distortions. These deformations of light give the works a surreal atmosphere. The painterly layer of Toreyo’s lyrical abstraction reveals the artist’s extraordinary sensitivity to color. In the X+BODIES series of artworks, this feature has come to the fore. The formal layer of Toreyo’s painting shows a slightly oval blur of intense color and a sharp, decisive line. However, the main „energizing” agent is a unique color that resonates with tension. The compositions are open.
In X+BODIES series of lyrical abstraction, Vidal Toreyo tells the viewer what he has experienced in a real way. While creating, the painter records his experiences and memories.

Color in Toreyo’s X+BODIES abstraction
Pictures from the X+BODIES series attract the eye with their bold colors. This is characteristic of lyrical abstraction. They charm with sophisticated matter. It is surprising with a strongly accentuated texture. They amaze with a sophisticated liquid drawing. That is why each of Toreyo’s work stuns with its expressive power. Each is distinguished by a different style, searching for forms and shapes that fill the composition. Forms taken from memories have been defigurated. We will no longer notice objects and characters in them. The shapes seem to be torn, as if they were torn apart. They became independent entities in self-existing paintings.
