Carlos Coronas (b. 1964, Spain) graduated in Fine Arts from University of Salamanca, he combines his art practice with his work as a teacher at the Arts School of Aviles. He has an impressive curriculum of exhibitions, complemented by several awards and grants. His early paintings showed a clear abstract leaning with a strong chromaticity and a liking for unusual formats and supports, something that encouraged him to open up to more varied and rich formulations in the treatment of painting and also of the supports used, which soon derived to wood structures in which colour unveiled other volumes and light emerged as a formally telling substratum. Always progressing along these same general guidelines, Coronas went on to add neon lights to his works, light compositions on painted surfaces remitting to classic geometric abstraction.
