Colorful and powerlful realism Dourone ‘s street art

Fabio Lopez aka DOURONE was born in Madrid and grew up in a family of art lovers. He has been active in the scene since 1991 and has stood out for his incredibly colorful style. The bright colors, however, don’t tend to diminish the great realism that distinguishes his portraits, which make him a pop-inspired artist.
The joy that shines is evident in the frequent use of a palette almost always composed of warm colors such as yellow, red and orange, muted by a strong blue. His work has long been inspired by the following quote:
“Think with the heart, feel with your head”
The phrase is taken from the Uruguayan writer and journalist Eduardo Galeano, who founded the movement “Sentipensante”, composed by the contraction of the Spanish words “center” (hear) and “pensar” (to think); it is an invitation to open and overcome paradoxes, not to divide, but rather to reunite. Fabio with his works makes us feel closer and empathetic towards his subjects.
