Tomas Baleztena Is an artist with a strong expressionist aura in his work. He has a unconventional gift in his approach to portraiture and leaves the viewer with a very personal vision into his emotions. His landscape works find glimpses of warmth in the darkest of subjects, conveying a deep sense of purpose. Working in oil on canvas Baleztena is not immersed in the refinement of his marks but more the raw emotion and self reflection he captures. Looking at his Winter scenes one can feel the bite of the cold snow with his arresting use of light and refinement using it.
Tomás Baleztena is fine artist born in Madrid with Spanish and British heritage, he studied fine art at Middlesex University in London and The Complutense University of Fine Art in Madrid.
His work has been exhibited in The National Portrait Gallery of London, National Gallery of Aberdeen and other prestigious venues and galleries around the world. He has also been selected to take part in some of the most distinguished painting and drawing awards such as The BP Award, The BMW painting award and the Penagos Drawing Award. Tomas currently has works in collections in Europe and the US.
