He makes music the sublime accomplice of human nudity, of his dedication and his loving need [...] He balances the intention of those notes of apparent static with the vibration, the rhythm, the sustained time, the silences so that the music projects its sound on the visual.

Fernando Gálvez
de Aguinaga

Art critic

It suddenly places us in the true dimension of the pictorial works that here overwhelm us with their gestural dynamism, with their chromatic fire, with that powerful energy that they emanate and that seem to speak of the birth of the stars [...] He is a refined composer of images, a precise and no less passionate conductor in the orchestra of the pictorial.

Oscar
Mertz

Art critic

Manel faced a musical experience and performed an emotional, open and abstract interpretation, related to concrete events: the lived and shared experience. The musical stimulus has been absolute. He has created a Pictorial Poem inspired by a symphony originally conceived as a Symphonic Poem.

Passage

Miguel Ángel
Muñoz

Poet

Pujol creates a pure abstraction, since each of his paintings is a constant search, an investigation into matter and textures after each brushstroke; that is to say, it tries to dialogue with the broader meaning of painting [...] One could, strictly speaking, speak of this painting as a fabric of light and shadow to give presence to space. The exact fulfillment, the clear verification of that design is perhaps the highest achievement, the work of Pujol that grows more and more not only aesthetically but also poetically.

Sofia
Carrillo

Art Director

The painter's work directs us towards an experience of opposites: delicate and bestial, detailed and explosive where it forces us as spectators to come closer to observe the filigree composition in its backgrounds and to move away to be able to receive the impact of a violent cut to the canvas of or a dense matter that drips down the canvas as a trace of the artist in his passage through the creation of this new territory.

Santiago Espinosa
de los Monteros

Art critic

Manel Pujol Baladas seems to be looking for the perfect abstract painting [...] In a single painting the roughest strokes and patches of color can coexist together with extremely delicate glazes and meticulously placed accidents.

Perhaps that is why his pieces are disconcerting at first glance, but shortly after observing them, they must be received as someone who is facing a new person, full of contradictions ready to be deciphered.

Passage

Jaime Moreno
Villarreal

Poet

In terms of sensitivity, you could risk the idea that there are artists who respond to sensation and artists who respond to temptation. I think that Manel Pujol would belong to the second group, that of those who experience the risk of playing: hence his inclinations for the body and for music. Whoever plays deeply recognizes that they visit the invisible. [...] I suggest closing their eyes after approaching Manel Pujol's musical works to try to see in the dark.

Fernando Díez
de Urdanivia

Journalist

When speaking of the arts, the temptation to speak rather of an art with ramifications that uses color, sound, form, letter and other means to express a single substance emanating from the sensitivity and the spirit is legitimate. [ ...] Pujol has turned music into colors, to offer an interpretation that supports his plastic sensibility [...] as he himself says, he had to "become a musical note and travel.

Galindo

Art critic

Its Author has gone beyond the dance, the musical and the research process that he developed, to then focus on the pictorial itself but always attending to the origins and antecedents of his paintings [...] M. Pujol Baladas has shown that the alleged incompatibility between vanguards and neo-vanguards is a fallacy.
