“The master always teaches what he knows and this is part of my influence, but I see it will be rather short. I am very happy to see a brutal geometric evolution� Josep Novellas Santi Dominguez is essentially figurative, with a clear tendency toward realism. Soon I surely will have to say "was" because he is now clearly on his path of change. Although the human figure and its reality are still driving his work, that certain obsessive classic perfectionism that much damage him as he did not have, yet, the sufficient expertise to achieve them. Now note however that his domain of freedom is governed with his creative concept. Without giving up, because he does not need, the principles of plastic language. Santi Dominguez has reversed the framework, the desire has disappeared for a theoretical perfection, and he is devoted to what should be fundamental: communicate emotions. Pere Pascual

Santi Domínguez “Santi Domínguez undertakes a hard work as a big fan, huge painter and much better technical illustrator. He focuses his view on the wild life. He addresses this complicated issue, with fervor and with a version of great scientific value, but written by the eyes of a new vision of great tonal beauty. These beautiful pictorial works are maintained by the fidelity of their Creator, faithful to a kind of intimate gaze directed at various races such as the elephants, apes, mammalian beasts, reptiles and horses under the tutelage of an extraordinary sketch and wise application of the iridescence is a collection of great power and beauty teaching descriptive. Dominguez is guided by pure heterodoxy attached to a single conviction, which is none other than the plastic creation of species transferred to canvas. These paintings hold the ideological message of respect for wildlife, seen from the perspective of visual enormity plasticity, where the situation is more complicated color due to their bodies and feature different skins. The artist uses his gift, talent and intelligence in these works, and once crystallized and completed, submits them to the criticism of specialists, whose rise the study to the superlative degree of Works of Art. Older people may remember that we formerly used these animal representations for the sole purpose of making it known to an ignorant world. These skills were exotic and only used as educational material, never as an artistic message in visual creativity. For this reason and in response to his creative needs Santi stands on these exercises and ascends to a preferential and outstanding artistic level. His works are driven by his strong personality and his skill, by his manner of drawing and possessing knowledge on this subject. His struggle, in an optimistic scenario, serves as a heavy circular tax taking all human actions. Fortunately for lovers and animal advocates, Santi Dominguez has the purest ideology that times have changed. We can definitely say that the technique is perfect and each canvas is bound to its own history under the formalization of a wonderful color system.” Oliveras, Josep El arte en su máxima expresión Ediciones Ecuador 21: Barcelona 2011
