The painting Roure de Puigcerver, from the artist Xavier Moreno Prats, which was exhibited at Subex Galeria d’Art, was selected by the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) for its contest Figurativas ‘15 and acquired to include it in its permanent collection. Realistic painting has experienced a strong worldwide increase in recent times in both supporters and prestige. Subex Galeria d’ Art, which since its inception in 1973 has opted for figurative art, has participated in spreading this style and place it in the preeminent position it deserves.

The inauguration Figurativas ’15 took place at the museum on Friday 20 November, attended by personalities like the Madrid painter Antonio López, a permanent member of the jury.

The crowd attending the event, which made small the enclosure, could check the quality and originality of the works. It is known that the “contemporary” figurative painting, term to differentiate this new art, has been gaining popularity in recent years. The award, which this year reached its 8th edition, has managed to quickly attract both artists and audiences not only Spanish, but worldwide.

The twentieth century was, in the art world, the absolute dominance of conceptual and abstract art at the expense of realism. Therefore, from Subex Gallery, which has always focused on figurative art, beggining in 1973, the news was received with great enthusiasm, as the gallery feels as a part of this return to fair recognition that figurative painting deserved.

Since its inception, the gallery has worked with young artists, little known by critics and the specialized public, and have slowly been making her career to obtain their rewarded talent. Not only the case of Xavier Moreno, but a large group of artists, Catalans in their majority, such as Francesc Congost Tor, Claudia Vilafamés, Josep Enric Balaguer, Miquel Torrecilla, Gaspar Vilà, Jaume Arisa, among many others.

Since 23 dicembre 2015, Subex Galeria d’Art exhibits the work of Claudia Vilafamés.
