Magi Puig was born in 1966, in Palou, a small 50 inhabitant village in Catalonia and studied art at the Sant-jordi University in Barcelona.
He likes not only group scenes, mostly families on Spain’s sunny beaches, but also interiors and, above all, women’s portraits. Whatever the place, the seashore, the market, or even his studio, Magi PUIG aims at recreating an atmosphere, as personal and intimate as possible, and then fully integrating us in it.
His art seeks sensuality through the models’ peaceful and languid attitudes and the sun’s heavy heat reflecting on the beach. The work on the texture also is essential, as it strengthens the analogy with the smooth skin, the thin sand or the sweet and comfortable cloth on which Carme, his wife and muse, lies.
Sensitive in general and visual in particular, Magi PUIG’, paintings genuinely evoke photography: air views, diving views, flat sweeping views, they all intrigue our eyes while they puzzle the perspective. They truly give life and movement to creations which invite us to joyful and dizzy escapades.
