We are pleased to present Planet Caravan, the first solo exhibition of Justin de Verteuil in Spain. Throughout his practice De Verteuil is led by an intuitive rhythm and logic, creating subtle compositions that explore the tensions and complexities of revealing ones true face in interpersonal relationships. Born in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago, in 1990, De Verteuil's work is sensitive to the Caribbean context, with his warm colours and open-ended narratives often evoking the exotic and mythical. De Verteuil is a graduate of the prestigious Art Academy in Düsseldorf, Germany, where he studied in the class of Siegfried Anzinger while Peter Doig was a professor. The artist continues to live and work in Düsseldorf today.
