Pedro Cherino (1992, Barcelona.) Currently based in Girona, Cherino studied at Escola Massana and Fine Art at the University of Barcelona. A multidisciplinary artist who questions the creation of the object and the surface.
"Painting as a question, as a cornerstone of the creative process. Painting becomes form without function, rather it remains in a process of constant questioning in my work. Each piece embarks on a journey through a possible idea that defines what a painting should be. Should it be fluid? Should it overlap? Should it stain? Can it change shape? Is it static? ...
The canvas is the playground and what happens inside "meaning". Throughout the history of art, we have remained faithful to the vertical support and the motif that occurred in it, as if it were just one more window of our home, a window where we can escape from the real, from the thinkable, from the concrete.
My paintings are conditioned by the culture of beauty. Stepping into them makes your eyes throb with colour and shine, and exciting the memory of knowledge. In order to conspire over the painting, it is necessary for it to remain beautiful at the same time."

Pedro Cherino (1992)
"I treat the painting as an object, performing the mental exercise of applying the paint. I superimpose the material, each brush stroke becoming an individual piece in itself, changing and therefore altering the ulterior meaning of the surface composition. "
Painting as a question
'Painting as a question, as a cornerstone of the creative process. In my work, painting becomes form without function, rather it remains in a constant quiz, formulating what it should be. Each piece tries to travel through the possible ideas that define what a painting should be like. Should it be fluid? Should it overlap? Should it stain? Can it change shape? Is it static? ...'
