Escoda Artist Conrad Roset Set
"Escoda brushes offer me a wide range of expressive possibilities. ÚLTIMO and BARROCO series are my basics."
From a young age and from an academic training he decides to fix the starting point of his career in the expresionism field. It is from there that he explores several ways to deal with his major theme: the female sensuality. An undeniable sensuality that he achieves through a brave use of color. His brush traces, but it also stains, drenches, drips… Conrad Roset uses the brush like a juggler and he sets off fireworks on the spectator's look.
Conrad Roset uses different brushes, but in his set we have the essential ones for any artist who wants to introduce himself to watercolor. ÚLTIMO (synthetic) has an extraordinary softness and almost the same liquid retention as squirrel. BARROCO (synthetic) is one of the most popular references of watercolor. Similar to White Toray, even with a bit more spring.

In a small town outside of Barcelona in the fall of 1933, Josep Escoda Roig (1902-1982) envisioned and created a brush factory to produce artist brushes for decorative and Fine Art. It would be the first of its kind in Spain and despite a Civil War and difficulty in obtaining raw materials, the company developed and grew. Today, the company has produced nearly 75 million brushes with close to a million brushes being produced each year.
Josep Escoda’s vision and passion for producing the best brushes in the world continues to this day with his sons Josep Jr. and Ricard. It is is now a 3rd generation company with sons and daughters of both brothers following in their grandfather’s footsteps.
