How many exhibition works:
BBA Gallery is pleased to present "Rómulo Celdrán: Digital Tenebrism", the first solo exhibition of the exceptional Spanish artist in Berlin. With his latest series of hyper-realistic paintings “Digital Tenebrism” (2020-now) Celdrán explores the Baroque tradition. Instead of candlelight, however, the scenes in Celdrán's paintings are lit only by mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. "Digital Tenebrism" are silent, contemplative works that leave room for the viewer's own imagination. Completing the exhibition are his latest hyper-realistic sculptures of enlarged household gloves called SOLID. Using 3D computer modelling, the work explores the relationship between reality, art and science.
Rómulo Celdrán (*1973, Spain) is an internationally recognised artist in the fields of painting, sculpture and drawing. His high level of sophistication has led to his presence at leading fairs (SCOPE, ARCO, Art Cologne) and in important collections (Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection, Artium, CA2M, Museum Art Plus, Biblioteca Nacional). Forbes magazine named Celdrán as one of eight Spanish artists whose work is currently rapidly increasing in value. Celdrán came to the attention of BBA Gallery through his participation in the Artist Prize founded by the gallery.
