Painter who creates dialogue between lineal gesture and the writing of signs and lettering. Action and rhythm emerge from the simplicity of vertical and horizontal lines in search of the parallel path that the painting traces on the canvas. His pictograms are like large networks in which the viewer is aware of a certain unsettling order requiring their gaze so that the fundamental order of things may be distinguished. He has won numerous prestigious drawing and painting awards, including the 1987 Tarragona Biennial painting prize.
His works have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions and his works are to be found in several public collections like Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Amsterdam CaixaForum Barcelona, Barcelona Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), Barcelona Centro de Arte Caja Burgos (CAB), Burgos Patio Herreriano - Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Español, Valladolid.
Joaquim Chancho lives and works in Barcelona.
