Patrick Ybartina is a painter based in Canada, France, Spain and England. He was born in 1945 in Liverpool, England, and he turned to painting immediately after graduating from the Liverpool School of Art.
Ybartina hypnotises the spectator with powerfully vibrant figures, characterized by energetic dark lines that surround bright shades of colour. The profiles of the fascinating faces reminds us of the later Cubist works, while the soft lines that overlap each other seem inspired by the floating geometries typical of Wassily Kandinsky. As in the masterpieces of the Russian painter, we perceive a kind of “Spiritual Element” in Ybartina's artworks.
From the more abstract representations to the ones with incisive figures and settings, one always perceives life and energy, opening new doors and unexpected horizons in our mind.
Ybartina's paintings are found in public and private collections worldwide.
