The paintings of F. Pavon are examples of abstract expressionism in its purest form. Strongly inspired by the abstract expressionist movement of the 1940s and ‘50s, Pavon takes the spirituality and luminosity of Rothko’s colors along with the energy and vitality of Pollock’s gestural paint splatters to create his own fresh, contemporary interpretation of their modern masterpieces. Pavon paints purely by instinct, calling his process an “improvisation.” He approaches each board with no conceived plan of what he will create, how, or even what pigments he’ll use. He favors acrylics and enamels, and is very hands-on in how his finished works will look, manufacturing all the frames and boards for his pieces himself. Filled with vivid, yet earthy colors, and strong brushstrokes that move through the entire composition with a sense of uninhibited freedom, it’s no doubt that Pavon’s works reflect the inner emotions and energy of their creator.
Pavon grew up in Spain, where he currently lives with his wife and two children. When he Is not painting, he works as an administrator and designer in his own architectural firm.
