Rai Escalé

Rai Escalé, (b. 1964) is a Catalan painter and visual artist.
His work has been shown extensively around Europe and the USA. His illustrations have appeared in many Catalan media.

He works between south Catalonia, where he lives now, and Bratislava, where he has collaborated since 2007 with Miloš Kopták in the Miroir Noir project.


From 2009 to 2014, was deeply involved in the epic burst in and out of the mythical Barcelona Eat Meat Gallery.


"Art is the best way I've found to sublimate myself into someone better ..."

Spaniard Rai Escalé is a very moving individual in more ways than one. He perfectly understands human nature but does not believe that we are powerless in changing innate behavioral traits. His words are sagely calming and subtly scolding at the same time.


He believes that art could literally calm the world down.

Rai Escalé

Rai depends on a fluctuating process of going in and out of his psyche to uncover, recover and reveal images that cause his audience to look and look again.
He knows that his process and creations are unpredictable and could cause gallery owners/collectors some hesitancy. Still, he is also aware that an artist must be expressively truthful.

His words teach us in a
non-condemnatory way that a simple life that takes loved ones, nature, and travel very seriously is good. And when you add the creation of truthful and beautiful art to the mix, it is like you have Heaven on Earth.
