That the painting speaks of itself is a constant in Artigau's recent visual approach which is never presented to us as an abstract inquiry, but rather as a personal experience: art inhabits his creations just as the familiar figures do or his fellow artists from the workshops on Carrer Sant Pere Més Baix or daily scenes such as his studio or the shops of the neighbourhood. If, every day, Francesc Artigau tirelessly translates everything that surrounds and attracts him into his drawings and paintings, it is not surprising that his work space, the dialogue with the great masters or reflections on the act of painting itself, play a leading role in his creations.
The municipal art galleries currently occupy the rooms of this medieval construction, the origin of the town and stronghold of Vall d'Aro, documented since 1041. Here, the oldest part, dating from the 12th century, is conserved and since 1983, it has been the centre for the main exhibitions in the municipality. Together with the church and streets of Castell d'Aro old town, it is listed as a Cultural Asset of National Interest.
