"Oscar Sancho Nin loves the colour black for its magic and mystery, and because it reminds him of Goya’s black paintings, a major influence. Without black there would be no light which is one of the striking qualities of Oscar’s work."

I'm a painter from Spain and I love the beauty of black. For me the colour black represents magnetism, power, elegance, and an opacity which with the contrast of white or other colours becomes the background of form. My paintings are often inspired by the dark and mystery, the past and the contemporarity.
I work too in colour... For me colour transmits the soul of a painting, and adds more sense to the themes that I paint. Use of colour, contrast and also the composition are never left to fate in my paintings, it´s often very calculated.
The materials which I work in are acrylic on canvas, and I like to paint portraits, enigmatic forms with a mixture of abstraction. For me they are archetypes.
I never stop experimenting. I like to try with differents themes, or different styles, always in evolution; I am not that kind of person that bores of repeating always the same formula. My influences are Goya, Francis Bacon, Picasso, all the great contemporary masters. Anyway over the influences prevails my own approach.
