Bio

Carlos Puyol graduated from the Instituto Universitario Nacional de Arte (IUNA) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 2000 he moved to Catalonia to pursue doctorate studies at the Universidad de Barcelona obtaining an MFA with his dissertation: Painting and Physicality.

Painting is the artist’s field of work. He examines the expressive and evocative properties of the medium within the contemporary art environment. His work questions the concept of unity in painting, at both the formal and temporal level. His compositional method, based on cuts and interruptions, allows him to join different styles and temporalities on the same canvas while developing a kind of rhizomatic unity.

Carlos has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions both in Spain and abroad. His work is represented in private collections in the United States, Sweden and Netherlands. Puyol was a teacher for painting seminars at the Center d’Art “La rectoria” in Sant Pere de Vilamajor during the summers of 2003, 2004 and 2005.
