Joaquim Chancho, born in Ruidoms in 1943, started his artistic path through the portrayal of arquitectural landscapes and tree themes, with influences from informalism style. In his paintings abound dense brushstrokes with bidimensional nature. His technic has been changing throughout the years, making the artist experience different routes: pictorial sedimentations, juxtaposed color ranges, directionality... Chancho has been awarded with different prizes, in which stands out his Prize of painting at the Tarragona Biennale in 1987.
