b. 1960 Spain Having exhibited extensively throughout Spain and having his own gallery in Valencia he was spurred into changing his focus from landscape works and running an exhibition space. In an attempt to discover new inspiration and ideas he began to travel the world. This led to a whole new and exemplary portfolio of portraits from different cultures across the lands. Their forms of dress, body art and headwear obviously fascinate Trelis. "Tribal persons on abstract backgrounds are how I want to represent the atmosphere and the life which surrounds the portrayed person. They are the reasons for my painting, wrinkles of life. I often try to get to know my subject when traveling and the surrounding they live in to express personality."
