Benet Dalmau’s airy oil paintings depict architectural landscapes and scaffolding that extend beyond the sensual in a hyper-realist plane. Graffiti marks the myriad buildings of Dalmau’s nameless cityscapes offering grit and character to his anonymous structures. Based in the picturesque beach town of Vilanova i la Geltrú, in Catalonia, Spain, Dalmau is interested in light, materiality and perspective which he credits to his time spent studying architecture and 3D-rendering. Asked what his works aim to say, Dalmau elucidates “optimistic calm and white noise.” His realist oil paintings highlight a sensibility and eye unique to Dalmau as someone who lives with dyslexia and color-blindness. Because of these conditions, Dalmau is able to see and create with a flourish uniquely his own.
