Artist: Inigo Sesma

At the beginning of this unique health crisis, Inigo Sesma leaves Baltimore to return to New York. A city that has strongly influenced him for their first meeting ten years ago. His American experience marks the Basque artist's painting. From Ohio to Arizona by Missouri, all these places 'feed my narration and my desire to transcribe this particular aesthetic and atmosphere'.

At the beginning of this unique health crisis, Inigo Sesma leaves Baltimore to return to New York. A city that has strongly influenced him for their first meeting ten years ago. His American experience marks the Basque artist's painting. From Ohio to Arizona by Missouri, all these places 'feed my narration and my desire to transcribe this particular aesthetic and atmosphere'.

Inspired by scenes encountered in several American states during his road trips, the young Basque artist Íñigo Sesma produces unique, cinematically inclined paintings saturated with unobtrusive social commentary. These remarkable everyday scenes evoke the void, isolation, and emptiness in a figurative fashion similar to the art by one Edward Hopper.
Reminiscent of Jack Kerouac's road trips or even the atmosphere found in the works by Ed Ruscha, these intriguing paintings act as postcards from a world that has already transformed into something else;
He is an artist with urban origins; a symbol of a new Spanish generation of painters returning to a figuration where the studio is in movement, as a purified contemporary painting practice.

This new body of works is surely a continuation of his explorations of the genre as he connects with the American tradition of social realism and regionalism. Drizzled with social agency and infused with a dose of romanticism, his masterfully executed paintings unravel the commodification of everyday experience.
