"I paint to never die"
"My name is Bran Sólo. I'm a good person, painter, illustrator, designer and photographer, plus a lot of other things I never wanted to be."
Graduated in 2006 in Computer Application Development and Database Analysis, he worked for seven years for the technology sector.
In 2010 he participated in the official program of parallel events of the European biennial of contemporary art Manifesta, in its eighth edition, with an exhibition at the Casas Consistoriales space in Mazarrón.
In 2012 he decided to leave his job as a computer and lifestyle to devote himself fully to drawing and enrolls in the School of Art of Murcia, leaving behind family, partner and home and moves alone to a studio in the city of Murcia.
It is at the same school where he discovers that an eye condition, of unknown origin, has conditioned his perception since childhood. A macular lesion (choroiditis), formed by scars in the central area of the retina, distorts images in a way he describes as "kaleidoscopic", multiplying images with high contrast or luminosity with sharpness. In this way, he discovers that he cannot find with certainty the line that separates a white plane from a black one, he confuses volume with emptiness, positive with negative and, except in specific lighting circumstances, he perceives all objects multiplied by up to eight or ten copies, depending on distance, and especially those that are luminous, making it difficult to see screens and projections as well as elements that emit or reflect moderate amounts of light. This condition, which forces the brain to interpret reality very subjectively, gives him a "unique vision", which he maintains with humor "is the most important quality an artist must have".
His work can be found in galleries and art and decoration stores in Europe and North America, as well as in his own online art store where it is possible to purchase original paintings, high quality lithographic reproductions, paintings on wood and illustrations applied to objects.
