On Friday, April 1, 2016, Modern Eden Gallery presents ‘The Next Day’, the highly anticipated solo exhibition of Emilio Villalba. Exploring fundamental components that encompass the human condition, each painting conveys emotionality layered between his abstract composition. Utilizing an alla prima technique, the ardent expressions and melancholic undertones create a visually potent collection of portraiture.

My portraits are inspired by master works, as well as the contemporary human condition. They explore the dissonance created when the familiar is fractured and distorted by outside influence.
