“Artists are these men and women who are able as everybody to perceive the Reality, but with a special talent to express it. Their perception of reality help to enrich ours. This is why perhaps they are necessary.
There are artists along history that decors our lives, as IKEA, with an enveloping art that take us to the sweetest geographies of our existences.
There are other artists that open us a hidden door to unexplored territories, overcoming fears, facing the unknown, and showing some of its sides. They increase our freedom. In this path of pioneer artists, lucid and breakers, we could name Goya, Picasso, Bacon, Duchamp, Baselitz, but also Kafka, Stravinsky, Diaghilev, Brecht or Gaudí, to mention, not randomly some of them. And following this trace of existential art moves Oscar Nin.
Oscar Nin is an artist without academic career. His only certainties are his doubts and his big capital, his authenticity. He don´t emulates anybody, and achieves what he achieves by himself. Oscar show us an art painfully honest, intuitive, intelligent, and essential. A painter that risk to show us new territories, as he says, far beyond distant. "
