Roger Backwell

Roger Backwell is a west of England artist who, for the last four years, has been living and painting in Competa, Andalucia, Spain. Roger finds huge inspiration from Spanish life, scenery and traditions and paints in several mediums, enabling him to portray the diverse variety of subjects his art depicts.

 

Previous to moving to Competa, Andalucia, Spain in 2001, Roger worked in the UK as storyboard artist, illustrator, cartoonist, art director for numerous advertising agencies/publishing companies and design groups. His work has been published worldwide and he deserves his reputation as one of the most respected UK illustrators in the advertising profession.

 

Since 2001 Roger has been free to do his own thing and has quickly gained a reputation for being a fine and talented artist. He is finding renewed inspiration in Spain with paintings encompassing various themes from the Andalucian landscape of white washed villages, knarled hard living olive trees, the whimsical humour of Don Quixote de la Mancha, the spectacle of a bull fight or flamenco dancing, portraits of his local goat herder, Antonio, the exuberant colours of a paella dish, returning occasionally to sketches made in Mallorca, Venice and Greece.

 

Roger Backwel nació al oeste de Inglaterra y durante  los últimos  cuatro años, ha vivido dedicándose a la pintura  en Competa, Andalucía, España.Su gran inspiración la encuentra en la vida y tradiciones de España y sus pinturas reflejan la gran variedad de personajes y paisajes que el refleja con su arte desbordante de color y vida .


Antes de venir  a Competa en el 2001, Roger trabajó en el Reino Unido como artista de cuentos, ilustrador, dibujante, director de arte para las agencias de publicidad/empresas y grupos de diseño. Su trabajo se ha publicado por todo el mundo y su reputación es la de uno de los ilustradores BRITÁNICOS  mas respetados en la profesión publicitaria.


Desde 2001 cuando Roger viene a Competa  ha estado libre de desarrollar  su propio arte  y rápidamente ha ganado una reputación de ser un artista con un gran talento. Él ha encontrando su inspiración renovada en España con sus  pinturas que abarcan desde  temas del paisaje de Andalucian de aldeas lavadas en blanco, olivos duros y vivos , el humor caprichoso de Don Quijote de la Mancha, el espectáculo de la lucha con el toro o el flamenco retratado en el baile , el  retrato de Antonio un pastor de cabras, los colores exuberantes de un plato de paella, volviendo de vez en cuando a los bosquejos hechos en Mallorca, Venecia y Grecia.Todo esto y mas es lo que Roger nos deja ver en las pinceladas de sus increíbles cuadros
