Portraying everyday life at its best has always been the desire of writers and painters; and although literature is a passive and serene art, painting on the other hand has the power to attract people’s attention from the first moment. A painting artwork projects a fragment of life that interacts with human mind, filling it up with images and memories as vivid as life itself.
The paintings below were created by Jose Higuera, an Spanish realist painter obsessed with the reality he has perceived since he was very young. Higuera has transcended the elementary stage of existence to reflect reality in short time intervals that will never be repeated, letting the human eye do the rest.
