TUR COSTA

Rafael Tur Costa (Santa Eularia, Ibiza, 1927).

Studied drawing at the School of Arts and Crafts in Ibiza. His artistic training can be considered self-taught. The 1955 comes in contact with teachers and students from the School of Fine Arts in Berlin who come to the island to follow a three-month course in painting and drawing from them, receives great influence and falls squarely in the modern art camp. Later, his friendship with some members of the group “Ibiza 59 ” is a great encouragement at the beginning of his career.

In 1962 he made his first solo exhibition. Since then more than fifty personal exhibitions and important events and collective exhibitions guarantee his national and international trajectory. It is considered the first artist born in the Balearic Islands that developed his personal style in a purely abstract field, not figurative.
