Antoni Taulé

Besharat Gallery
Atlanta, Georgia
May 30, 2012 - July 07, 2012

Antoni Taulé is a painter of Catalonian origin living in France. Taulé studied architecture in Barcelona, but after several years of working in this domain, he decided to go back to painting. Ever since, he has painted bold building sites and empty spaces. His works were thus called “the plenitude of the void”.

His work carries a sense of disruption. He paints classical building sites and interiors: ballrooms, office receptions, the halls of the Louvre museum, the chambers of the Prado, the Palace of Versailles and other monumental spaces.
