1965, Molins de Rei (Barcelona), Spain
"Martí Bofarull’s work fits in with renovation of the urban landscape that has characterized Catalan painting of the last twenty years. Among our artists who have remained loyal to figurative techniques, several have successfully fixed their gaze on the architecture, the streets and the commercial trappings of the modern city….
New York is the culmination of cities of our time and Martí Bofarull has returned to it time and again in recent years. There is a cyclopean and overwhelming New York, and another one made of somber buildings and opaque bridges. There is a New York made cold bluish we can perceive from high in the air, and a gaudy and variegated New York that vibrates around Times Square. Thus the painter meets challenges without end, and the viewer who has followed Marti Bofarull’s work hopes he will keep finding new corners of the city, new angles, new details."
