Art Brokerage: Felix Mas Spanish Artist: He was born in Barcelona and trained at the "Artes y Oficios" and later at the "Escuela Superior de San Jorge". Felix Mas artistic education was further developed by extensive travelling in Europe and the United States, before returning to his home town, Barcelona to work as an illustrator and designer. His works were first exhibited in 1966 in a group exhibition at the "Galeria Jaimes" Barcelona. Mas continued exhibiting in Spain until 1974 when following a visit to Venezuela on the occasion of his first one-man show, he decided to settle in Caracas where he lived for six years. During this period he took advantage of his proximity to North America to further his career and ultimately became represented by several galleries throughout the United States and his work was regularly exhibited at highly respected art events and fairs in New York, Los Angels and Chicago. His artistic connection with the Spanish peninsula was renewed when he was invited to exhibit in Barcelona, Valencia and Malaga and later in Lisbon, Portugal. As a result, Mas now divides his time between Europe and the United States. Felix Mas's finely balanced compositions of colour lead us through symbolism and fantasy to the realm of beauty in the female figure; a subject matter central to his work. He is a traditional painter who is fascinated and preoccupied with line, form and the achievement of fine colour harmonies. His models, clearly his ideal of femininity, are radiant, graceful, exquisitely dressed and invariably place in rich opulent settings surrounded by ornamentation and glossy accessories.
