    About the artist

    1929: Born in Madrid

    Spanish painter born in Madrid, one of the founding members of the Association of Spanish artists El Paso. Professor, School of Fine Arts of San Fernando in 1954, left teaching to go to Paris in 1956 with a scholarship to study the current avant-garde movements. His early works fall within figurative painting, and later through a phase where experiments with cubism and finally enter fully into abstraction. Initially used only blacks, browns and whites, but once he discovered the potential of light, began painting with vivid colors and flat planes. Counterpoint evolved to use red in their compositions, and, in general, more intense colors. In his abstract phase, comprising the 1970s, Feito shows a trend towards simplification, his compositions dominate the circle as geometry. Possibly, the influence of Japanese art is evident in their preference for large black stripe. Most of his works, no title, so often recognized with a numbering assigned to them. Since the 1980s he has alternated Feito stay between Montreal, New York and Madrid, to finally take up residence among the latter two cities. In 1992 he appeared in the capital of Spain an exhibition of works in acrylic on newsprint. Among the awards he has received in 1985 cite his appointment as an Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters in France.
