He established himself in Paris in 1985, his work at that time exemplifying the full-blown hyper-realism typical of Madrid. His basic style was quick to evolve. It successfully informed a body of work that found a home in various group showings, was exhibited in world cultural capitals, and entered as well numerous private collections. Sculpture as well as performance art and ad hoc installation works have reinforced Valentin Caro's reputation as an internationally known artist. Valentin CARO is as well a writer, who has been published in various periodicals. Rigth now he is as well putting the finishing touches to a book on time, space, and infinity inspired by Kant's theory of the world as representation: "VITAL" story science-fiction: www.fnac.com & www.amazon.com Having done well over a thousand figurative paintings, both medium and large in format, he has now started a series of paintings on the role of women. The artist treats this subject in a minimalist manner, allowing an image, free of parasites and souvenirs - immaculate - to emerge.
