About his paintings
Barquero´s paintings start from the defeat of humans and society, posing scenes of magic realism and brutalism. Humanoid figures, often, without genere, walking through desolate and empty landscapes, hopeless. A mirror of the contemporary world, where survival has become the only way of living.
