Carlos Revilla was born August 19, 1940 in Clermont-Ferrand, France, the son of a Peruvian diplomat and a French mother. His father’s profession took young Revilla to several countries in Europe, Latin America and the United States. Between 1956 and 1961 he was a student at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Amsterdam with his first exhibitions presented in Brussels, Paris and Rome. While living in Cadaqués, Spain, he formed a strong friendship with Salvador Dali, Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp who had great creative impact on him and his surrealist style. In search of his roots, from 1960 he traveled to Peru, the country he felt was his true home. His distinguished career is rewarded by Ramazzotti award in Milan, the Prix Europe of Ostende and countless exhibitions in major museums and galleries in Europe, Latin America and United States. Revilla’s paintings are included in important private collections around the world which demonstrates the great international recognition of his art. His paintings, though surrealist, are characterized by the eroticism and strong presence of female figures. The portraits and figures merge with other elements, colors blending together into organic forms or contrasting with images of war machinery. The perception of reality is altered and the play on absurd is intriguing yet harmonious.
