Francisco J. Jimenez was born in Jerez de la Frontera (Spain). He moved with his family to Madrid, where he made his first forays into colour and was absorbed by the great world of painting. He has exhibited in Madrid and currently lives and exhibits his work in London. His 5th solo exhibition; `In the Raw' will explore the beauty of nudity. Stripped bare with no interruptions or obstructions, his oil paintings reflect the purity of the human body. Francisco has been influenced by a broad range of artists such as Tàpies and Lucian Freud and found inspiration in the painting traditions of Spain and Britain. This exhibition focuses on human relationships and how these are depicted in the gestures, beauty and purity of the human body. In effect, Francesco’s work is the hunt of the soul.
