José María is like from another time and another latitude, which those natives who are discovered in the heart of a forest, to recognize in them an ancient alien to know sin.


In late discreet nudity be primitive mystery. But he could more easily imagine the attic gym chatting with young and old, as this passivity of purity does not deprive him of invariable intelligence, spontaneity when syllogisms tore as the first grapes in season, the golden branches.


His body seems an arcane repository of wisdom, so far from the rudimentary as decadent. When he smiles mischievously oblique saves her, opening his lips, for that chipped tooth, lives, grows and occupies but does not lose, ever, the clarity of the pagan, causing him

But he lives in perpetual gentleness, in accordance with its untouched nature, in a rhythmic pact with the desires of the body and mind, a stranger to the excesses of his contemporaries stunted health – often foolish, too smart, others – without ever exhorbitarse.


perennial beardless keeps hair puberty, what resembles a young Bithynia, who have lived when you are supposed they would set their modes of Kouros in a veined marble pink and indigo and evening sunset tibiase touch, like skin transpires available to him in the loyalty of their hands.

José María Fayos, landscapes and natural views.
From a focus distance, the landscape and the objects and figures can become assumed as true portraits, in which the pictorial subjective feeling transcends mere visual reality. That quality is what implements the painter José María Fayos, an artist still young but has over twenty years dedicated to the noble and complex art of painting. From the rotunda contemporary classicism seeps through every frame brackets using this painter, offering panoramic views and characterized by the conscious pursuit of the frame that contributes to the work the strictest sense of beauty.

Formed in the strictest canons of academic art education, in which the practice of drawing and analysis of the great works of art history influence when dialing inclinations, José Mª Fayos been known imbricar these features in their production a safe intimate, intrinsic and personal touch. Also his paintings reflect a powerful meditative and transcendent load, not by chance the artist has a degree in philosophy, which has been formed positively during long work sessions in the studio and in front of the natural. He is a classical artist, trained in the workshop of the painter Luis Massoni, while his own life attitude allows you to keep abreast of all cultural events of today, comic book movies, the theater more radical art, literature music or sport.

José María Fayos is primarily a traveling painter, but his attitude toward the journey embodies both of those artists who abounded during the long nineteenth century and instructed the modern concept of grand tour. Curious and bold and yet respectful of the natural, historical and heritage of the territory by knowing load time horizons through his and others to make them re-offer. In his cityscapes, gardens, and landscapes deliberately escapes the vision imposed by the phenomenon of mass tourism and primarily looking for original vanishing points – not pulsados- that become true pleasure to behold. So, as did artists like Turner, Corot, or Rusiñol, visited and worked in different countries such as Italy, Austria, England and Egypt, besides painting in almost all regions of Spain.

Monuments, gardens, statues and landscape are fixed in small works that also trap atmospheric and climate currently showing at the same time changing and capricious pleasure of nature. In their urban panoramic colorful, indebted to some extent the happiest of Ramón Gaya painting, Fayos simultaneously interprets the emotion of the moment and the perception of time stopped. Thus it has created a lyrical dialectic of urbanism and the environment; and especially it has managed to analyze beautiful corners of cities like Venice, Paris, Valencia, Palma de Mallorca and Madrid. In this last capital has recreated, among other things, the clear light of the sky, the gentle beauty of El Retiro, its magnificent fountains and historic statues or the strength of its impressive architecture.

Similarly, the painter has followed the trail of the great artists of the past in his interior, performing daring reinterpretations of mythological and biblical scenes, still lives in the purest Spanish pictorial tradition and refined motifs figure. The latter include elegant contemporary portraits and female nudes drawings, in which the body is always presented as a container for the personality and spirit of the model. José María Fayos absorbed brushes the ideal of beauty of the things of the world, looking for the mysterious vocational intentionally desire to understand and translate through painting.
