Jorge Ballester died this week


Jorge Ballester (València, 1941), co-founder of Equipo Realidad, died this week. The artist illustrated Mètode’s last Annual Review. Ballester forged his artistic talent while residing in Mexico, where he came into contact with some highly interesting Republican intelectual exiles fleeing Franco’s dictatorship in Spain. This artist’s work touched on different artistic trends but was always characterised by a strong claim for heterodoxy and individual freedom. In recent years, Ballester had cut down on his participation in public activities as a «professional artist» to get away from market demands and unleash the more personal facets of his work. For this reason, and for the high quality of his work, Mètode places a very special value on his collaboration.
