Portfolio_ Christian Tartarini – Minimalist Art With Soul

17 Oct

 In a city where everyone is either an Artist, a DJ, a Social Media Director or all of the above. It is not enough to have talent, one must have  something special  in order to stand out from the crowd. Christian’s solution: TEXTURE-and lots of it…. it takes a closer look in order to appreciate his work and see an artist who is creating art in the 21 st century.

Christian Tartarini, is quickly become a favorite among  art critics, Interior designers and private collectors in Barcelona. His understated work done in a monochromatic color palate have raised eyebrows across the city. The subtle beauty of his technique and his strict attention to detail  have made his pieces a  must have in Barcelona’s ever evolving art scene.

The Belgium born artist originally set out to become an architect  however, along the way he found himself gravitating toward a more ethereal medium; allowing him to express himself through his textured pieces and signature brush strokes.

Not only is his work  hanging in the dining rooms of Barcelona’s most elegant homes, Christian, was also recently commissioned by  Barcelona legendary retail king LA COMERCIAL  to create a site specific piece in their latest showroom in the Borne.

Bringing together  an urban color tone to the canvas, his work transmits a sophisticated edge reflecting a city constantly in change.  His latest work can currently be seen in the cutting edge  design studio/showroom of AMATO SOLE in the Raval.
