Ignacio Gil Sala was a complete painter. With a bohemian personality, he was an adventurous and intrepid traveller who knew how to reflect his look upon that world on his paintings. After starting his artistic training at the age of nine, Gil Sala entered the School of Fine Arts of Barcelona, where he had as teachers Félix Mestres and Vicente Borrás. As early as 1930, when he was almost an apprentice, he won the bronze medal of the School, and in 1936 he won a scholarship to make a study trip through Spain. Those were the difficult moments of the Spanish Civil war, but thanks to sculptor Mariano Benlliure’s help, he was able to complete his artistic training. Throughout his life Ignacio Gil travelled both on the Peninsula and in different Islamic and Latin American countries. He exhibited his work in Spain, France, the Philippines, Switzerland, the United States, Canada and Colombia, among many other countries.
Extraordinary draughtsman, agile handling the pencil and the charcoal, Ignacio Gil immortalized landscapes throughout Spain, fishing ports of the Mediterranean, different European cities, etc., all embodied through a vigorous brushstroke and painstaking colour. The Balearic Islands Council awarded him with a prize for the many times he immortalized Ibiza’s lands, peoples and sea.
