Eloy Añez Marañon
Self-taught painter born in the Bolivian Amazon jungle and resident in Barcelona. It is the clearest manifestation of the triumph of an immigrant's tenacious work in his other homeland.
Although he is a pictorial heir to Picasso's cubism, he carries in his soul the colors, flavors and sounds of the jungle. The ones he captures in each of his works.
Eloy is the painter of the rubber tappers, collectors and preparers of the Pando jungle (Bolivia) because his paintings reflect not only their work and customs but also their deepest souls. The most impressive thing about his paintings is the multifaceted green that impregnates everything along with the vital reds and yellows or oranges of the jungle sun.
