PhilosophyBox, a not-for-profit Center for Contemporary Arts, presents Octavi Intente’s paintings, from January 12 to 29, 2005. The exhibit of Octavi Intente will open with a public reception on Saturday January 15 from 6to8 PM. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 7 PM

The selected works of Octavi Intente are a set of paintings, acrylic on canvas, which reveal a vital spirit in everyday objects. He brings us face to face with something that never occurred to us, and now, suddenly, it appears obvious and unquestionable. The Spanish press highlights “[Octavi Intente] is an exceptional artist and his work is tinged with critical, corrosive humor. He is an artist with means, a great sketcher who knows how to deform and to exaggerate, but also - when it is necessary - how to be faithful to the reality or the surreality, so that his worlds are as credible as the crazy situations he creates. His paintings capture stories where the familiar and the quotidian give rise to the unusual” [El punto de las artes,Madrid, March 2001] or “Intense, descriptive, even anecdotal, Octavi Intente always narrates stories giving a special dimension to his work. He tells us about the life and its anecdotes through his paintings, paintings to be long time contemplated, to detect all the details, to find the irony (..) [his work] defies classification, intemporal while actual, to offer a real world with a magic touch, and all well resolved.” [Gal art, Madrid, February 2004].

Octavi Intente is an artist from Barcelona, Spain, where he has been working and exhibiting since his early youth. Formed as an sculptor, he has rather found himself in the painting technique, main core of his production, widely displayed in Spain. He is an usual exhibitor inBarcelona, Madrid and Seville (eg. ArtExpo 97-99, Alfama 01-04) and his works owned by private and public collections (eg. Olympic Museum, Lausanne, Switzerland). This exhibition introduces this novel artist in the United States for the first time, bringing an opportunity to both the artist and the American audience to seduce each other
