The Cycling Art of Didier Lourenço

One part Modigliani, and other parts Chagall and pittura metafisica, underscore the work of Spanish artist Didier Lourenço.

Lourenço was born in 1968 in Premià de Mar, Barcelona. At the age of 19, he began working in his father’s lithography atelier, where he learned the trade of lithography.

In 1988, Didier made a corner of the atelier his place for painting on canvas and paper. He shared his time between painting and printing lithographs for himself and professional artists. The atelier would prove to be his best classroom, a place where Didier would build his education in the world of painting. That year he presented his first individual show and also edited his first collection of lithographies.

In 1991, Lourenço won a prestigious prize for young artists making a breakthrough into many galleries throughout Spain showing in various solo and group exhibitions.

In 2000, Winn Devon, a prestigious publisher and distributor, of posters took his work worldwide. This global presence quickly sparked the interest of galleries who would present his original work. Didier traveled around the world to his solo exhibits in New York, Seattle, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Puerto Rico, New Orleans, Nashville, South Africa Las Vegas, Miami, Singapore, among others.

In 2015, Lourenço undertook this series of magnificent of paintings which celebrates his love of cycling.
