"A painting of a creator may be recognizable by several aspects, such as the subject, the color or atmosphere obtained in each work. In the work of Francisco Urbano there is a curious and rich combination of elements. The synthesis of these is the ability to transform each work in a particular fantastic realism that is just amazing in it self. He seems to be a world to share precisely the neat technical process present in each composition "
