Architect by profession, designer by adaptation, painter by vocation and writer out of the need to make friends, Oscar Tusquets Blanca is the prototype of the all-round artist that the specialisation of the modern world has brought to the verge of extinction.

With his paintings Tusquets Blanca shows us that eroticism can yet survive the crass aggression of a spectacle culture that, in our times, has been on the point of finishing it off. And he shows us too that eroticism can continue to be, as it was in its heyday when it was prohibited, censured, destroyed and burnt, a rich source for creation and for genuine art that is pugnacious, convulsive and exciting

Mario Vargas Llosa, Madrid, May 2015

An internationally renowned artist, architect and designer, Oscar is the creative force behind leading design house BD Barcelona Design, where he has created furniture and objects that have seen him win the Spanish National Design Award and exhibit at the MoMA in New York and the Centre George Pompidou in Paris. He has also designed many notable buildings, including several exhibition halls in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs at the Louvre, Paris, and the Toledo metro station in Naples.

The exhibition, Hot Days, is the first UK exhibition of his work, and is an opportunity to get an exclusive view of his latest paintings. It features a series of oil paintings of female nudes in a sequence of erotic poses, as well as two limited edition Gaulino chairs.
