The Curators

Tenderness

Paintings by
Pepe Baena Nieto

Ithink that in painting almost everything that is done truthfully has beauty.

​Pepe Baena, who accumulates awards and recognitions stands out for being capable of doing what Gustave Courbet described as Art Vivant : translating habits, ideas, and the feel of the times he lives in.

A chronicler, Pepe is portraying his own intimacy, with joy and honesty. Baena approaches reality with tenderness and humor without renouncing, sometimes, to a certain harshness. Idealization has no place in his work. Playing with the classical language of painters like Diego Velasquez, Pepe Baena explores with a singular talent the unfathomable lightness of being.  

" I could not explain it, I just see beauty in a mackerel, in my family in a salon, or in a package of cookies."
