A unique interpretation of reality without a romantic touch, but rather detached and spontaneous. This is the essence of the work of Julio Cesar Munevar. The artist states that his work is part of a "spontaneous realism" which, in a sense, relates him to the French teacher Gustave Courbet, creator of realism. That realism in MUNEVAR can be glimpsed through the choice of themes; there is a certain spontaneity in terms of their selection, but not in terms of the execution of the work since the pictorial and gestural impulse is controlled and measured. The painter MUNEVAR is a recorder of everyday life, that is why there are minimal variations in his WORKS. One might think when observing his work that the idea is to register even the smallest movement of his characters through his brushstrokes. This way of working also relates him in a certain sense with the look of the impressionist painters. Those whom, through their work, try to register everyday life and their happy bucolic scenes. Gestural painting between the initial impulse and the controlled gesture, wihtin a universe of the great idols, are part of their symbolic imaginary.
