Rafael Canogar

Rafael Garcia Cano, (Toledo, 1935), studied with the painter Daniel Vázquez Díaz, between 1949 and 1954. He was a founding member of the group El Paso, and abstract influence, which was linked between 1957 and 1960.

From 1976 he returned to abstraction from a new perspective. Through his work, invents and reinvents an aesthetic language that leads to a rupture and a new conception of time and space. The matter becomes a metaphor, music, and a meeting point between the old and the modern. Canogar cares about expressing through painting, his idea of space; his works are endless areas showing even an artist who does not need aesthetic features or historical boundaries to transform.
