What is the


The "Symbiotic art" is positioned

as an important part of the "evolution and the future" of art
and consists basically of the combination in symbiosis of:

- Several artistic disciplines simultaneously

- Technology and artistic talent

- Vision and cognition

"Art in symbiosis raises the level of artistic 

 work of very high quality pictorial

 photography and excellent 

 photographic optics the painting"



​The "Simbiosismo" in Visual Arts, is a quantitative and qualitative leap in terms of technique and procedures is concerned, as their forms and methods had endured anchored in tradition without barely changes over hundreds of years, again achieving positioning the painting suddenly at the zenith of the artistic and technological avant-garde of our time.

The painting returns to position itself again, in the first line of reference of art after a period of uncertainty, doubt and indefinition. During this time has been displaced and relegated to mere field of ancient masters, pushed and overlapped by other areas of the art of greater dynamism, such as cinema, design, animation, the "perfomance..." that have evolved more quickly.

The "Simbiosismo" does not intend to imitate or copy anything of what until now has been doing, but it aims to create works that otherwise would be tediously difficult to achieve, with only a few brushes resource and the hand of the artist. The level of detail, perfection and the agility provided by new media would be unthinkable otherwise without the aid of technology".

"Symbiosism" becomes transgressive with the firm purpose of reversing the current stereotype implanted in society that makes the image the foundation and premise of our lives. Create works based on images, show an apparent reality that we take for granted, that fade with the same ease with which fiction itself does.

The "Simbiosismo" is not something unknown, simply reappears in forefront with a new concept and a greater intensity. Egyptians and subsequent civilizations had habit coloring his sculptures and bas-reliefs, creating great combinations between painting and sculpture, as it happened with the beautiful polychrome carvings of sacred Spanish art. What is new is that the fusion now encompasses many more aspects of the art. Architecture surprises us with buildings and skyscrapers, which themselves turn out to be huge and wonderful sculptural pieces, fusing both disciplines, while with the "Simbiosismo" painting and photography combine to create something so far novel, impossible without the support of technology. Artistic disciplines that are manufactured in symbiosis with new media are becoming more diverse.

Now the photographer is no longer mere eye-witness who tries to capture moments or events, is also protagonist participates in the development of his work, painted on his work, is a painter and photographer is.

The "hyper-realism" and "Photorealism" tried to reach, through painting, photographic quality in his works and the "Simbiosismo" in one of its forms, reverses that process making photography painting.



The "Symbiosis" is an artistic method that is based mainly on a way to create "pictorial works" based on a main purpose, to get rid on that false conviction that makes us think that images are an undeniable premise of reality.

The image conditions us. We mistakenly assume that the images show us a faithful and pure representation of reality, but we have reached a technological point and level in which we are no longer able to clearly differentiate between reality and fiction. No doubt many unreal things will begin to torment our lives. The "Symbiosis" transgresses with that stereotype of reality that prevents our brain from establishing itself in certainty, making us see that every image can be easily unstructured and that they are the same of certain other realities that are apparently not so evident.

The "simbiosismo" is a way and method of making art that does not restrict nor ruled out the treatment of themes or motifs in any of the trends both past as contemporary. Supports figuration and abstraction, realism, impressionism, "Fauvism" and "surrealism", Expressionism, etc...

"The image conditions us

 We mistakenly assume

 that it shows us a faithful and pure

 representation of reality."



The "Symbiosis" in its execution is a painting applied by digital means with useful base covered totally or partially in the collage more or less altered of one or several photographs, which are and always will be an essential product of the artist's creative output. It is a pictorial style based on deconstruction and subsequent construction, based fundamentally on the resources that new technologies have put at our disposal, streamlining, modernizing and evolving existing procedures and means. New creative ways are opened under this environment that allow a greater freedom of expression without ever departing from the essential skill, management, experience and knowledge that are required of the artist, always accompanied by a large dose of acute creative wit.


The pictorial art as we know it today few and few resources left to not be repetitive, if not by peer into the improvements that new technologies bring us daily. This new trend is the result of the use of these media to emerge with renewed and new forces.




The difference between the "Symbiosis" and the photo retouching is basically that, as much as the photo retouching what is intended by the treatment of the images is to dramatically improve the final result of the work, the "Symbiosis" what it is about to use as a base the photography as a palette and color support for the setting of new works, as well as the use of specific collage elements in the style of those already employed in previous trends in order to obtain a completely different final result. In other words, Symbiosis "decomposes the original photographs" to end up generating a new work with different conception and meaning of the originally conceived. Let's say that the original photos are the preliminary sketches at the same time as the oil that permeates the canvas. All the work, both the photographs and the painting and elements of it must belong to the artist, that is, they are prototypes created by the artist from the beginning to the end of the process.



"The brush is already tool

 that is part of the recent

 history of art."

"Simbiotic Artist" is a mixture of photographer and painter. It is a doubly qualified artist who uses both media, photography and painting to create their works, being both in origin, source and result of the creating artist.


It based its work on useful mixing of the two means of expression until now so different in their behavior, but that the technology has made it possible to unify in a single format. The execution of the work is performed under the digital systems or electronic means and deviates from the technical manual which so far had been participating, which gives is already outdated, which allows greater agility at the time of the completion of their work.


The legality of the system is established under the convenience that the painter display or expose the origin of its creation, i.e. the original photographs which are part of the final work and which have been used as a resource.


"Simbiotic Artist" is one that is not limited just to create works of high aesthetic level, but rather combines it with the accompaniment of the narration of a witness, or provides a logical explanation argument to it, it may be based on stories and Chronicles or reflections that support the purpose of the work. It allows in any case a dialog and correlation between vision and cognition.



Of course a good photograph can form and compose a good picture in itself, but photography is a reflection of a moment, a moment or event retained over time, that never go out of exhibit, relate and be trace of something rather than what happened in a limited time interval. Photography has perhaps a little more than what the image recreates us, while the "Simbiosismo" tells that represents, about events that occur and persist for a period of greater amplitude temporal. It reveals, manifests and denotes a whole range of details, habits, behaviors, qualities and behaviors of the life of the people part of a period and a specific time, staging through the recreation of theatrical novel as planes. The photographer who uses the "Simbiosismo" wants to make an extensive account of a non-punctual event.



The "symbiotic art" or "simbiosismo" is structurally:

Basic and foremost dilutes that barrier up to now existing between photography and painting. The painting by "the photorealism and hyperrealism" tries to briefly reach the photographic art, but photography was never able to get closer to the painting.

Takes in art the path that allows the works to acquire the streamlined communicative sense that has characterized him throughout its history, not limited to being just a decorative support of public and private spaces.

Does the observer to participate and interact with the work. Read the message, get parameters and conclusions, to reflect, and ask until you reach those images and hidden elements that form part of the work exhibited by the artist.

Used in his method of expression supported by any of the known artistic trends, both past as the latest avant-garde.

In short: places the "Simbiosismo" spotlight on the magnitude of the major art trends, in an attempt to achieve that "digital art" finally get recognition as a means of artistic expression with "Shift" which until now had been denied.


In short:

  • "Simbiosismo" is a way of making and of understanding the art.

  • Hyperrealism tried to paint photography and the "Simbiosismo" in one of its forms, makes photography painting.

  • "Simbiosismo" among other variables, is a mix of photography and painting made both by the same artist.

  • Its exhibition face to the public requires necessarily the shows of the work pictorial end finished, as well as of them photographs of which participates this work.

  • "Simbiosismo" used as a means of expression any trend, past, contemporary, avant-garde or future without distinctions.

  • "Simbiosismo" aims primarily to tell stories, capture thoughts and ideas, but can also participate in pure expressionism..

  • The artist "symbiotic" is PAINTER and PHOTOGRAPHER and you are interested in by equal both disciplines. Not want to depart is of any of them, but rather it of create a unique using both, under this new form of understand the art that is the "SIMBIOSISMO".
