Osborne Studio Gallery (osg.uk.com) is hosting the first solo show in London focused on David Noalia, the gifted equestrian painter based in Seville, the capital of the Spanish province of Andalusia. The artist’s favorite subject is the Andalusian horse, which he cherishes for its extraordinary “movement, elegance, and power.” This show’s timing (June 17–July 4) is ideal, as it coincides with the highlight of the British racing season, Royal Ascot.
From the gallery:
Noalia is an artist of vision, style, and color, renowned for his signature abstract equestrian paintings and his explorative subjects of portraiture and nature. A recurring theme is the Andalusian horse, which captures the essence of Spain at its best — the passion, the color, and the drama. Noalia combines artistic inspiration with timeless beauty to create memorable canvases that have the power to mesmerize the viewer. Influenced by the palette and light of Sorolla, brushstrokes of Velazquez, and freshness of Gerard Richter, his paintings playfully reference the weighty history of painting in a contemporary and vivid light.
For his first ever British solo show, Noalia captures the vibrant festivals of Andalusia, the passion and masculinity of the bulls, together with the delicate romanticism and nobility of his equestrian subjects. We are honored to present the first British solo exhibition of this leading contemporary Spanish painter.
“I know how it starts, but I never know how it will end,” Noalia says. “That keeps me in a constant pulse with the painting, and in the moment that moves me. That tells me something; once it acquires its own character, it is finished. It’s not a matter of time, but sensation.”
