Born in 1993
Born in Madrid in 1993, Mateo Revillo left Spain in 2011 for Paris, then left for Oxford the following year where he studied Fine Arts. He returned to Paris in 2016. His works are conceived as landscapes. He works particularly on painting, also interested in the different forms of organisation of the territory, such as architecture and installation. Whether through paintings, assemblies or territorial interventions, it is a matter of forming a unity of the space in which the work is inserted. He thus develops a new grammar of the landscape between painting and architecture, restoring the ambiguous continuity between the image and its place. His work in painting is an organic variation in the space of geometric forms: they are deployable seeking the integration of space in the work, like fragments of frescoes belonging to a large ruined ensemble. It’s a ruin to imagine.
