Born in 1951 in Spain’s Basque country, where he still lives and works, Alejandro Quincoces began his career as a self-taught artist at the early age of 16, when he started work as a commercial artist for advertising agencies, supporting himself and his extended family.
His formal training in Fine Arts began in 1987, at the age of 36. Working in oils and charcoal washes, Quincoces is much more than the quintessential painter of enigmatic urban landscapes.
This Bilbao-born artist abandoned, at the beginning of the eighties, abstraction for objective and referential painting. Yet despite their obvious references to known locations, his paintings and graphite drawings offer the viewer a portrait that transcends any specific place, carrying the psychological weight of the most expressive abstract work.
Their muted colours, the contrast of shapes and the discriminate use of light give relief to a terrain where we can wander, evoking memories, desires and misadventures. They are landscapes of forgetfulness, cities of sleep where what could have occurred carries the weight of years.
