Since opening its doors, Subex Art Gallery has pursued the same objective: to disseminate figurative art from established artists while betting on new talent. Victoria Salom, PhD in Art History and gallery owner since 1973, decided to go against the grain and give new realism the value it deserved; a style that throughout the twentieth century had been relegated to the background, by the omnipresence of abstract art.
During these four decades, Subex has provided an exhibition space for more than a hundred artists.
The result of the symbiosis established between Subex and the respective artists has resulted in mutual success. On the one hand, Subex has become one of the Figurative Art reference galleries in Barcelona and Catalonia, while artists like Jose Berruezo, Jorge Duarte, Comes Busquets and Joan Pujol have become established artists after exhibiting in the gallery .
Currently, Subex is beginning a new stage. Since October 2015, the gallery offers a series of painting courses taught by artists who exhibit frecuently in our gallery.
Subex is located in the heart of Barcelona, on Mallorca street, in between two of the most important avenues of the city: Passeig de Gràcia and Rambla Catalunya. It is also surrounded by emblematic works of Gaudí like La Pedrera and Casa Batlló.
