Vidal Toreyo paints dynamic canvases, going beyond the conventions of informel art and action painting. The images from the New Mutations series are a double mutation. During painting, from the initial random form, they change in the direction designed by the artist. Vidal adds more elements and layers. When viewed, they change depending on the angle of view. Metallic surfaces, structures on canvas - mutate when viewed from different perspectives. This is the result of the materials used and the effects of light reflection on shiny and textured surfaces. Vidal Toreyo entertains us with mutations, showing that everything around us is constantly changing.

Based in: Madrid
Vidal Toreyo comes from a sheep ranching family of welsh origin. The surroundings of the childhood region, the rough, coarse nature he grew up with, were the main reason he wanted, to the disbelief and disappointment of his father, to study painting. He studied art and now lives most of the year in Madrid.
During the few years of his artistic search Vidal’s works evolved in a continuous process from expressive representations strongly dependent on primitive art to new aesthetics of creating images. Vidal Toreyo finally did and got right away embraced, as he puts it, by abstract expressionism. Free, unrestrained expression, art not subjected to any particular compositional rigor reflects the freedom of mountain planes. Vidal creates colorful patches, lines and patterns, lets the drama dominate his work by using color as a strong element. He describes his paintings as: Sensual Ethereal Metaphysical Amorphous Fleeting Personal Variables. His is a sense of depth achieved through a variety of textures yielding an almost sculptural form. At the moment, he concentrates on alternating and mixes traditional and modern techniques by combining action images with a bold calligraphic style. His graphics are highly physical, joyful and interpretive. Large format goes hand in hand with easels and acrylic paints. His acrylic paintings are made of many interacting layers resulting in a surprising artifact.
