Lyle O. Reitzel gallery is pleased to introduce one of their most recent artistic discoveries, up-and-coming Spanish Dúo Los Bravú, by announcing their first solo show in Santo Domingo. Their exhibition titled “E’to Tiguere Tan Bien Chivo” will take place starting 7 PM April 4th 2019 in our gallery space in Torre Piantini.
Los Bravú, Galician word that roughly translates as a wild animal’s scent, is composed by Dea Gómez (Salamanca, 1988) and Diego Omil (Pontevedra, 1989), both Fine Art graduates from University of Salamanca established in Pontevedra. Their impeccable pieces, fruit of simultaneous work by the dúo, manifested early on a distinctive and fresh aesthetic inspired by Italian renaissance imagery merged with elements and surroundings of contemporary life.
The novel Dúo has been invited to the second edition for the artist residency hosted at El Portillo, Samaná in collaboration with Valeria De Moya. In this idyllic caribbean atmosphere, Los Bravú will produce key pieces that will be exhibited in their upcoming show. The first edition of this residency in 2016, pioneered by Uruguayan Ignacio Iturria, left an indelible imprint as a master of his artistry under the new warmth of tropical light.
Los Bravú have exhibited in international galeries and festivals such as FIN de Angoulême, JUSTMAD, Estampa & Matadero Madrid, and El Parche in Bogotá. Their pieces are part of important collections like DKV and La Real Academia de España in Rome. Currently they’re exhibited in the renowned ‘Fundación Casa Cortés’, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and ‘Colección Mariano Yera’, whose collection of larger paintings transcends from half of the XX century to the present.
