Jordi Jové

Jordi Jové, Serós, Lleida 1961

He is a Catalan painter

Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona


He is one of the most significant exponents of emerging Lleida artists.

Jové's pictorial work is characterized by stylistic plurality, a consequence of a heterogeneous use of materials and technique in his pictorial act, often expressionistic and marked by

direct action on support.

His work was consolidated from 1987, when Jové began artistic experimentation by incorporating inlays of decontextualized elements into his works, which adopted an object character. This facet was accentuated during the 90s, when the artist became interested in the pictorial process again.

Victory II (Reus Reading Center, 1988)

Moral Action in memory of Ives Klein (IEI, Lleida, 1988)
