Villalba is a searcher and lover of work well done, he ends one phase without apprehension to enter another, and in all those phases we find him once more.
The work of this Spanish artist is made up of different stages, all them characterized by an intense desire for ideal composition, by means of exquisite technique. An indisputable value of his art is its unusual character; we cannot type-cast it in any artistic school nor in any ephimerous fashion. However, we unavoidably discover the creator in an avant-garde context.
In his paintings he takes a look at: man, God, life or death without causing a wince, as his work, although dramatic, possesses an original combination of humour. Villalba is a natural instigator, an artist of our time who shows us his personal, up-to-date discourse without forgetting the lessons of old masters.
