pintando principal2Introduction
This is the website of Xabier Soubelet, basque artist. Painter, writer and song author from Valley of Baztan (Navarra)and St jean de Luz( Lapurdi).
Here you can all see and purchase his paintings( 2650), his songs( 350),novels and poetry ( 14 books).
In order to visit an exhibition of his work at his 16th century home-studio, Sasternea, in the small Navarran town of Arizkun, you can call him directly at  Spain (34) 616 347 689
The exhibition is divided into two distinct parts: on the first floor is found the artist´s recent works, the majority having been painted in 2014, mostly modern and abstract. On the second floor one can contemplate his more figurative work, paintings that have been created from 1976 to the present.
Sasternea itself is worth a visit and it both enhances and becomes part of Xabier´s exhibition of colorist paintings

 Painting Style 
Xabier Soubelet´s current style could best be described as abstract expressionism, and is easily identifiable as his own.  The majority of his paintings are abstro-figurative, with touches of real life present within an abstraction which is dominated and directed by the use of color.  Xabier's painting is based on such color, pure, vibrant, primary color. Color is the underlying element in the work of Xabier.
Xabier´s favorite artists are Matisse, Derain, De Kooning, Joan Mitchell, Hofman, Still, Per Kirkeby, Soulages, Tapies, Schneider, Poliakoff, Van Velde(2), Nicolas de Stael, and of course, Cezanne, for his composition, and Gaughin and Van Gogh, for there sense of freedom and use of color.  German Expressionism has greatly influenced Xabier´s palette, helping him to develop a Basque Abstract Expressionism.
The neologism "abstrootism" is made up of the words abstract and root .  It pretty much sums up Xabier´s style, which tends toward the abstract but always maintains a figurative element, even if it´s only a white streak representing a cottage in the distance, a cottage which is reminiscent of his home in Euskal Herria (Basque Country), a home that is full of life.
To Basques who live in America: If you want a painting of your basque town or your bornth house you can order what you want by this website.
