I had been seen his pieces around the net for the past month but only when holding a piece in your hands, you really appreciate the fine artwork behind. Believe me, it is stunning! Raul’s inspiration comes from nature, and it all started with a pine wooden panel, its different wood grains he was panting along and resulting in a dragonfly wing (which you can appreciate on his business card below).
He paints with different sizes of Stadtler pencils (did you know that they are made of Chinese ink?) and a series of Matrioshkas could take him up to five hours drawing. His collections are called Entomology, Cefalón, Insecta and Metamorfosis – all belonging to the world of entomologists and their study of insects.
Raúl mainly illustrates on different kinds of wood merging art and decoration, being the support plates, heads or matrioshkas. You can find his work in selected shops in Spain or contact him directly for any inquiry.
