Antonio Torres
Born in 1968 in Alicante, Spain. "My evolution as a painter has led me to achieve a recurring theme in my career: painting ballet." This is the subject in which I have dedicated myself these last few years. Direct contact with professional dancers from different countries has allowed me to observe and paint top performers in the industry, including dancers such as Yulia Tikka (Russia), Bianca Fota (Romania), Vesela Vassileva (Bulgaria), Sadaise Arencia (Cuba), Esteban Berlanga (Spain), Cristina Terentiev (Moldova), Bridgett Zehr (Canada), Victoria Ananyan (Monte Carlo), Nini Samadashvili (Georgia), Elena Evseeva (Russia), and Kristina Tabarovskaya (Russia). While my art depicts dancers from all over the world, it is worth mentioning three series with different models that particularly inspire me. The first one is Blue Dream. Here my model is Laurretta Summerscales from London, the wonderful main dancer of the English National Ballet. She shows graceful, talented movement on stages around the world. This inspires me to express the beauty of ballet with different techniques in my works. The second one is Blue Rainbow. It is a collection, full of realistic details, that sometimes presents unrealistic scenes, all of it thanks to my Russian model Natalia Gubanova, main dancer of the Moscow Ballet. She is a subtle and talented dancer who inspires me to develop surreal motifs. The third one is Contrasts inspired by the Spanish dancer Mar Ronda. Her elegance inspires me to paint scenes that allow the viewer to glimpse into private moments right before she takes the stage.
