Francisco Javier PLANELLS ALOS
Birthplace: Alcudia (Valencia)
scholarship holder of AMFPA since: 1998
Painting Method: Mouth painter
As a result of the smallpox vaccine when he was 4 years olf, he suffers from cerebral palsy that prevents him from using his limbs. He paints with his mouth since he was 18 years. At first he painted with great enthusiasm and little technique, although he showed a unique style capturing in a picture his feelings and concerns. His evolution has been very fast. Technically he has improved very much although he has not lost the freshness of his early works. He paints with bright colors, little-defined shapes and fast and nervous strokes. His style has evolved from figuration to interesting compositions close to abstraction.
