"We must learn the ways of Nature to achieve balance in ourselves."
Oriol Angrill is currently working in his studio located on the Mediterranean island, Mallorca, where he grew up. His collections are a different expression of his curated vision of figures and Nature. Using traditional tools such as watercolors and etching techniques, he explores the nature that exists between the line, color, and form. His work is precise and gentle, evoking in each piece a pleasant serenity that makes us stop and behold.

There is no better way to explain his work than through the simple act of contemplation.

- It is not easy to define his work, although realism is the constant, each work results from a unique and transitory process and theme. Depending on his experiences and his environment, he uses one type of technique or another, color or black and white: proof of constant and oscillating evolution.- text taken from polodearte.com

ORIOL ANGRILL JORDÀ. 19 Nov 1986. Barcelona

He studied Illustration at Escuela Superior de Diseño in Palma de Mallorca, where he was grown. He continued his artistic training in London to learn engraving techniques and life drawing at the Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and The Art Academy.

He has worked combining the world of illustration and the art world. Living with a constant duality has marked the a constant devolpment and research of his own style. A traditional and academic foundation is fused with the modernity of the new technologies he uses to create his own references. 
To him, the artistic trajectory is a continuous research and resilience to social and individual changes. The art must reflect these thoughts in all magnitude, from the quitest action to the most deep feeling.
