Interview: Watercolorist Conrad Roset Prepares for His US Debut

Conrad Roset is a watercolor and ink artist based out of his studio in Barcelona, Spain. Roset, who was profoundly influenced at a young age by the enigmatic Expressionist, Egon Scheile, explores the sensuality and fragility of the feminine form. Roset’s new paintings are a continuation of his “Muses” project, in which the artist searches for beauty in the effects of the watercolor and black India ink washes. Roset considers each of these works as explorations in the contrast between the black ink and the white paper; with the addition of soft watercolor accents. These new works, titled “Pale” make up Roset’s first solo exhibit in the United States. See Conrad Roset’s new works and meet the artist at the exhibition’s opening on August 29th at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco, CA.
