Collection: Luis Feito

Luis Feito López (Madrid, October 31, 1929- Rascafría, February 7, 2021) was a Spanish painter.

In 1957 he participated as founder of the El Paso group. Feito's painting at this time is influenced by automatism, with material surfaces in white, black and ocher colors, made with a mixture of oil and sand. Starting in 1962 he introduced the color red with counterpoint in his paintings and a year later his work tended towards a growing formal and material simplification, with predominantly circular motifs. In 1970, the fullness of color was imposed and since 1975 there has been a trend towards geometrization, which will culminate at the end of the decade in its refined stage of white squares.

In 1981, after leaving Paris, he moved to Montreal for a period of two years. Later, in 1983 he moved to New York, where he lived and worked until the early nineties. He obtained the distinction of Officer of Arts and Letters of France 1985, Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters of France 1993, the Gold Medal of Fine Arts 1998. He was also elected member of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando (Madrid).
