Last December, well into his eighth decade, the celebrated Spanish artist hung his seafloor-inspired artworks for the first time at Art Basel Miami. His success exceeded all expectations with his show having a huge impact on art lovers. His unique and innovative style brought him acclaim beyond his anticipated success with comments such as “the new Spanish Picasso” being heard. And that’s just it: Domínguez de Haro can’t be defined by any existing style. His art – as an artefact of intuition and technique – is new, with him being considered the pioneer of seafloor painting and what has become known as Organic Art.

The beautiful Mediterranean city of Almuñécar in Granada recently paid tribute to the artist naming one of its main streets after him and giving the go-ahead for the creation of the Domínguez de Haro Museum. And it couldn’t be any other way; the artist has been diving in the depths of the Mediterranean coast since his childhood and transferring the seafloor onto canvas under the creative gaze of one who is intimately acquainted with the very origin of human existence. The anemones, octopi, mermen, coral or rocks come together in the simplicity and complexity of the universe reflected in the ancestral seafloor, endowing it with its characteristic light, texture and colour.

Domínguez de Haro’s work will be on show at Art Marbella: Modern and Contemporary Art Show (Marbella, Spain) in stand E-11 from 29 July 2016 until 3 August 2016.

May life bless you, poet of the seas.
