Original Spanish Paintings by Maite BenetSpanish artist Maite Benet's paintings are characterized by unrestrainedly colorful imagery, refreshing simplicity and a wonderful earnestness of emotion. The figures in her paintings are voluptuous and exuberant, rendered with such fullness that their corporeal presence seems more sculptural than painterly. Each figure is protagonist in his or her own narrative world - subjects with personality, buoyant in character.

Maite Benet's painting style is playful and vibrant and has elemental anima with roots in the art of prehistory - an unaffectedness of composition and form. A punity of color, Maite Benet's works also have a discernibly Spanish gusto, recognizable in her lively portrait of a toreador. In her early-Picasso-esque figurative style, Benet was born in Castellon and now resides in Oropesa, a Mediterranean town where she works in her studio and gallery by the sea. Maite Benet has a degree in fine arts from Universidad Politecnica of Valencia and has exhibited artwork in Spain, the UK, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, France, Romania, and the United States.

In 2005, Maite Benet has been in the "Holland Art Fair" with the Gaudí Galeria of Madrid. Her works are being displayed in the Montserrat Gallery in New York throughout the year, in the Gallery Gaudí in Madrid all year, in the gallery Arte & Arte Madrid in New York, in the permanent collection of the IVAM (Valencian Institute of Modern Art) in Valencia, Spain. She has been invited to Arad Biennale in Romania, to have her work displayed in the future Museum of Contemporary Art of Arad.
