Jan Monclus

(Spain, 1987)

His work aims to explore the possibilities of figurative painting, starting from an inte- rest in referential play and a marked inclination towards accidents in the creative pro- cess. This convergence leads to investigating new ways of understanding painting. Using error as a starting point implies developing a whole series of gestures between the absurd and the unproductive, which invite questioning of the act and the pictorial medium itself. Jan is always interested in everything related to narratives of failure and the figure of the loser, as well as the use of humor as a resource when facing different issues in artistic practice.

In this search for new ways of understanding figurative painting – understood as referring to the idea of a referent – his interest has focused in recent years on gene- rating a painting that dialogues and coexists with other disciplines while maintaining its plastic condition.
