He was the son of a Peruvian diplomat and a French mother. His father’s profession, his artistic formation and his trajectory led him to live in different countries, but he never lost his Peruvian roots.
In Spain he established some links in Spain with the surrealistic group, especially influenced by Salvador Dalí’s vision of the movement, with whom he shared a great friendship.
From the Surrealism to the Magical Realism, Carlos Revilla’s works are full of symbols that tell us about his inner world. His painting is also characterized by the eroticism and the peculiar presence of female figures, as we can appreciate in this exhibition. Portraits and figures which merge with other elements, either technological, organic forms or landscapes, and which we see with an appearance of total normality.
