Hernández PIJUAN is one of the most important artists in contemporary modern Spanish art. His landscapes, mostly those of Catalonia, are abstract. But he refuses to be called an abstract artist. In his late work the artist makes use of just a few basic media. He reduces chromaticity and mostly keeps his pieces in black, white, green and ochre. Lines are set deliberately; everything that is not necessary is left out.
In 2003 Pijuan had a solo show at the MACBA and in 2005 he was represented at the Biennale in Venice.
