While Tony Capellán has done work in both drawing and engraving, he has turned increasingly to painting and to installation. Pride in his roots, the drama of the diaspora, and current events provide inspiration for images of great impact. In his work he exposes the social problems of his island and the entire region. Fine texture and their division into blocks characterize his paintings, and symbolic elements of his own creation and reference to ritual abound.
