Darío Villalba Flores

Darío Villalba Flores ( 1939 –2018) was a Spanish painter, photographer. “Darío Villalba lives and works in Madrid. He comes from a family with an artistic, intellectual and liberal profile, and at the age of eighteen decided to hold his first exhibition in the Alfil gallery in Madrid in the same year — 1957 — as he embarked on his studies at the Escuela de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, combining them with other courses in Law and Philosophy and Letters. It was during this period that he began to devote himself to his first photographs. In the mid-1960s, Darío Villalba began using photography in his works, although he does not consider himself to be a photographer as, for him, photography is a medium, a technique he uses as a vehicle for transmitting attitudes and emotions. This decontextualization of photography was a pioneering attitude for this age, a medium through which the artist reflects on the return to the spirit of painting through photographic technique. In the words of the artist himself, “In my work, painting is photography and photography is painting “.
