This lithograph on stone represents the eldest daughter of Belin, Natalia, as she is undoubtedly his greatest source of inspiration. More than a tribute to his daughter, it is also a tribute to his Spanish culture with some details of his lithograph such as flowers prints, style and yellow : can you feel the sun and warmth from South of Spain ?


The lithograph of Natalia has been created on stone, which is a printmaking technique where the artist directly paints or draws onto a flat stone to create an image. The artist starts by painting or drawing on the stone with a greasy substance. Then, the stone is wetted and rolled with an oil-based ink, which will be picked up only by the greasy parts of the stone. Finally, a piece of paper is pressed into the stone, letting the ink being transferred from the stone to the paper.


This creation is the perfect representation of the Post Neo Cubism style of Belin, as we see the balance between the hyper realistic, nearly frozen, appearance of the eyes, the ears, the mouth and the nose of Natalia and the surrealistic simple geometric forms of the hair, which creates a certain sensation of movement. With “Natalia” lithograph on stone, Belin abandoned his palette of vivid color to focus on shades of gray, which add a greater sense of depth and volume to his subject.


Print Them All is also proud to support Belin for his upcoming show PostNeoCubism with Nicolas Couturieux. Opening on Wednesday 14th June at 6pm 24Beaubourg / 24 Rue Beaubourg – Paris.

ABOUTTHEARTIST

Born in 1979 in Linares, Spain, Miguel Angel Belinchon Bujes, alias Belin, is famous for his talented way of spreading hyperrealism codes among suburban landscapes.

This Spanish urban artist has more than 15 years of experience in street art and urban art. Surrealist and innovator, he developed the Post Neo Cubism, a mix of realism and cubism, paying his tribute to Pablo Picasso’s artwork.

Over the past 15 years, Belin captured human nature through his own quest, looking for perfection in shapes and lines. He is now looking after another kind of aesthetic pleasure: he started to implement multiple angles and techniques about faces and bodies, to free forms and rules, trying to give a better sense of human expressions and feelings’ diversity.

Breaking the rules of proportion is currently his source of inspiration to create abstraction through the representation of multiplied view and angles. It leads him to explore deeper subjective art : his characters faces are disassembled and reassembled to show all nuances and differences of expressions and human feelings.

In this artistic process, he keeps using vivid colours and a mix of textures, as you can see for his artwork “Autorretrato”. His lithographs “Autorretrato” and “Natalia“ highlight his talent to mix photorealism and surrealism to create a special and unique character. You can note that “Natalia“ lithograph has been created with another printmaking technique : lithography on stone.

A natural sense for proportions allows Belin to be considered as a reference since he has started his work in 2001. He is well known around the world for his amazing portraits which capture perfectly the essence of the characters. Taking his inspiration from the urban environment, his mural paintings, created only from spray techniques without using stencils, are immediately recognized among others in the eclectic urban art world.

These techniques are combined to some elements of its former hyperrealistic draw creating a total new dynamic in his artwork. The distance taken from proportions is making its new style even more unique than before.

Belin has also already painted for famous brands such as Dockers and Carhartt, collaborated with tattoo artists like Kat von D and all his artwork can be seen in Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Israel, Holland, United Kingdom, Brazil, USA, Mexico…
