Work in progress: Hervás Amezcua, el libro. Conversaciones con Carles Duarte

Since 2016 we are working in a new book about Antonio Hervás in wich the author will talk about his life and work in a conversation with the poet and politician Carles Duarte.

The book, composed of seven conversations, offers a close, intimate and direct approach to the work of Antonio Hervás Amezcua, in seven chapters that explore his biographical-artistic profile: his childhood, the arrival in Gavá and his period of formation; his growth and development as a painter; the trips and stays abroad; and his recent era of great artistic projects.

Along with these, a chapter of reflections on the condition of art and the technique of engraving, so frequent in his plastic work. And finally a chapter where the two friends share their experience in the numerous projects they have done together, as well as the concerns and interests that link their works.

In addition to the thoughts, the book recovers documents, objects and photographs that help us to know better the rich and singular trajectory of the artist. A book made by three voices: Antonio Hervás, Carles Duarte and the artist Javier Erre.
