Bernardo Torrens (b. 1957 Madrid, Spain) is a self-taught painter primarily known for his monochromatic nudes. Torrens infuses temperature into his black and white paintings to create the feeling of color within his gray palate. In recent years, he has also begun to experiment with chromatic compositions as well. His works have been shown in solo and group exhibitions internationally. Torrens was commissioned to paint portraits of Mr. Félix Pons in 1998 and Mr. José Bono in 2012, both former Presidents of the Spanish Parliament. The artist is a dual citizen of Spain and the United States.
