Gustavo Vázquez King is a Uruguayan who one day came to Spain invited by his diplomatic representation (Embassy of Uruguay) in Madrid.  Like that he could start writing a story, the history of a young artist with roots in the European continent.  Behind stayed his years in the Montevideo that saw him grow up, his studies in the School of Applied Arts, of his town home with the illusion of arriving to the people and his culture with his art, his exhibitions in Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, E.E.U.U. , and his desire to arrive to Spain which he finally achieved.
The artist tells us that he already used stains in his pictures with tendency to informality .  The artist has been focusing on his stains so that the forms appear with them; white sails that he sometimes gets, leaving the canvas unprinted and others, creating his own whites of an extraordinary beauty and a difficult sum, since it is one of the more laborious colours to get.   Boats, ships in the dock, aground or sailing in the night, in the sunset, boats in a storm, with a remembrance of Turner and the great Spanish painter of marine scenes Pancho Cossio.
His paintings range from expressionism to Fauvism.  And, sometimes, the whiteness is interruptewith an explosion of colours.

Interior labyrinth, crossed cables, delimitation of space, insinuation, dusk towards an imperceptible background.  The eyes get used to the night; suddenly the labyrinth emerges entering from a great window marginal, different. Forms distorted.  Not everything has to be reduced to the monumental forms that the text book has been situated in each of the capacities of the imagination.  Again, at a hair’s breath, the exhibition lounge of the School of Architects of Almeria and in this occasion from a kind of reflexion that is produced with the relationship between the lineal forms and the plastic colours.
Author of all this,  a Uruguayan artist comes with an experience of current dates in the province of Almeria, Carboneras,  Macael, and the now the capital.  The wrinkle comes off like a sweaty cloth aged by cobweb, the intermediate of the straight line that stays further away than the fences that send the serenity of the lounge asleep.

                                                                                                         EL IDEAL, ALMERIA.
Vazquez’s picturesque language is of geometric regular forms, articulated with simplicity and efficiency.   In his works, the plans, the drawings and the soft metric highlights are submitted to extremely subtle compensatory relations.   Its radical simplicity produces a reaction more intellectual than emotional, while the optic image is the especially careful effect, until the refinement.   To this result contributes the extreme elegance of his election of especial plastic materials, oligisto, coffee), as well as his renunciation to colour and his contrasted use, very equilibrated shadows and lights, distributed in small rectangles and in degrees of whites to grays that remind us of the letter systems from the printers (Formica).   Therefore we are before an interesting proposal of neo-geometric painting, tendency of the nineties, not very developed in the Spanish Arctic scene, which is distinguished by putting the ornamental values and the refinement of the realization of any temptation of that transcendence and utopia that characterize the constructive primitive vanguards, the ones from his origins.
