Carlos D. Pulido


Within my interest to capture reality, in getting the viewer to face the object in the picture, my major current obsession is to capture the perfect reflex. To find the street outside through the crome of the motorcyle, the building through the car glass, the pedestrians through the bus windows ... In a nutschell, reality reflexed in different surfaces which distort and transform it to adapt it to strange shapes.

About the Artist:

Excerpts from Anne Aparicio's review published in the seventh edition of the yearbook of artists "Art and Freedom". 2012

"It is almost unbelievable that somebody like myself, hardly in contact with the world of art, is so impacted by the excelence and capacity of atraction of Carlos Pulidos's work. There are many things that, at firts contact, draw one's attention. His mazing technical skills, his virtuous execution, his pursuit of perfection, his atention to detail and his perseverance. They are, in short, features which, make one feel inmediately drawn to his work when beholding it."

"Carlos had nobody to teach him to mix colours and apply glazes. He is a natural talent which has evolved and keeps evolving as an artist in his own right, with no other schooling that long working hours and dedication in his study in calle Hermosilla in Madrid."

"His work includes abundant urban landscapes which connect intensely with the sensibility of those who are familiar with them, who thus feel transported to them in a true and magic fashion. Our attention is thus drawn even further to his technical virtuosism when beholding his "Cadillac" series (Reflex on a Cadillac, II and III), clealry present in cromes and reflexes in the glasses and bodies of automobiles. Or, when beholding work such as his amazing "Motos in Callao", we inevitably wonder how somebody with hardly any artistic education can reach this level of perfectionism in shining and details."
