Part of the gallery’s press release reads:

“It would be simplistic to classify Andres Barrioquinto’s art in a single style. Undergoing an evident evolution over time, his research and approach results in a unique and distinctive language, representing his mature phase.

Barrioquinto’s works moved from an initial stage, characterized by a more instinctive approach, expressed through what he was used to: strong engravings, bolder signs. Vitality and energy were spreading from his canvas, a measure of turbulence and passion typical of an artist’s youth phase.”
