On the basis of the first preconceived ideas from sketches, annotations at the margins, and studied guidelines, the result of each and every single one of my crafts is always conditioned by variables I deliberately include. I’m referring to the paint itself, and the geometry of the holder I constantly alter in order to get new results.
May it serve as an example a tondo, that, lacking those movement restricting vertices, grants me range in my strokes and other painting effects, usually unintentional, implying the next step, and so, the final point of view for that craft
But flexibility in the result doesn’t end there. It is in the middle of the process that the mind awakes when, spontaneously, previous emotional or sensory experiences emerge and continue during the development. This impressions require a full control to not to undermine the initial purpose, while the desire of holding on to a new idea increases.
Who wouldn’t want to say as much with two “syllabi” as Rothko did? Or undress the truth dressing the canvas with layers Clifford Still-wise? Or even feeling Pollock wreaking chaos until it reordered in an impeccable visual message? So many influences to be seduced by and repress as well, fruit of the sheer daily intake of signs, graphics, codes, crafts… Pictures and pictures our psyche is constantly imagining and reimagining.
All this makes me think that no craft ends identical to the expected, but, by contrast, that result is unique, and more original. That is a remarkable advantage in abstract art, for disregarding figurative mimesis.

Antonio Navas Martín was born in 1991 in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria island, and spent his childhood between the ocean and the mountains. However, he eventually moved to Valladolid, in the Iberian Peninsula. As a kid, he was fascinated by everything visual and his memories filled with color soaked hands, and visits to exhibitions.The thrill of painting and the experience with pigments and visual culture grew bigger during his teenage years, by delving into graffiti, and occasionally into street art.
In 2009, he decides to start studying arts and crafts in the “Escuela de artes plásticas y diseño”, Valladolid. After that in 2014, he enrolled the University of Salamanca to achieve a degree in Fine Arts. Since then, his interest for history of art and diverse techniques and materials has never ceased.
Although 2012 is the year of his first dated exhibition, it is while studying Fine Arts when he will be dazzled by currents such as matter painting, or abstract expressionism, shifting his work almost completely by then. Jean Dubuffet’s, Mark Rothko’s, Clyfford Still’s or Franz Kline’s artwork would be used as an inspiration for him.
More involved in the creation, and encouraged to exteriorize his first artwork, it was at that moment he perceived them as more mature. As a result, he then formed “Kaikoo” in 2015 along with some other artists, photographers and multidisciplinary creators he had met in his academic surroundings. Later that year, he establishes “Espacio Cero” group to which he still belongs at present.
From then on, he has exhibited in Europe on numerous occasions, both solo and collective expos: Milan, London, Vienna, Munich, Luxembourg or Paris amongst others, are some international examples, and in Spain, cities as: Barcelona, Madrid, La Rioja, San Sebastián, Valladolid, and his birthplace, have held his exhibitions as well.
