Cristian Blanxer is a Barcelona-born artist who has been working as an illustrator and animator for various publications and film projects, while he is known for his large-scale street artworks.
His paintings have an impressionistic touch that give them a unique realism, as he experiments with color through his spontaneous, intense brushstrokes. His passion for painting is reflected in all of his works, as Blanxer seems to not just depict his characters and scenes, but give them life in some way.
Forming surreal settings the artist creates his world with emotions and thoughts, a world that constantly evolves through his personal artistic progress.
