The history of David Messum Fine Art is one of innovation and commitment to vision; a vision that is epitomised by the company's promotion of figurative art and artists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, who largely instituted the Post-Impressionist movement in Britain. This has formed the core of David Messum's business since he began selling fine art in 1963, and dealing in British Impressionist paintings continues to be our focus today. From the gallery in the heart of St. James's, as well as at the Studio Gallery in Marlow, David Messum Fine Art offers the chance to view exhibitions of British artists on whose names the reputation of the company was founded.
David Messum Fine Art is delighted to present an exhibition of new paintings from the celebrated Catalan painter, Magí Puig (b.1966), to be held at 12 Bury Street, St. James's from 1st – 24th November 2023.
Held in conjunction with Sala Parés gallery, Barcelona, the exhibition presents thirty new works by Puig in his third exhibition with David Messum Fine Art.
In this major exhibition of the artist's work, we dive into Magí's painting technique. In his constant world travels in search of new experiences, particularly through Southern Spain and North Africa, he continues to fill his portfolio with images and ideas of how best to convey these places and their peoples into vivid colour, from which we too can experience both the drama of life there as well as the magical contrasting light.
In his studio with recorded images from his travels, he distils his findings into accomplished and detailed paintings. His technique is brilliant both in craftsmanship and colour, but always retains a contemporary approach. He has established his own voice.
