Domènec Fita i Molat (Catalan pronunciation: ; Girona, 1927) is a Spanish artist.
Having studied in different schools of classical fine arts (Girona, Olot and Barcelona), his work was gradually stripped of academicism, as evidenced already in his first notable works: the Recumbent Christ (1958), the Cathedral of Girona, and Saint Benedict (1961) the abbey of Montserrat. The mural painting or on different media, initially and primarily religious subjects, but also the drawing (themes retrat (portrait), nus (knot) and bestiari (bestiary)), ceramics, concrete, stained glass, the use of polyurethane, stone, and alabrastre, iron, steel, wood and various other materials have shaped the course of fifteen years of intensive work, producing a multi-faceted and difficult rating, which has derived a radical abstraction, based on a systematic search, serial and unpredictable, avoiding the isms in use.
Decided in favor of integrating the arts and architecture in public spaces, its large scale works are visible in places and buildings as iconic as the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Girona and Vic cathedral, monastery of Montserrat, ... and places of Canillo and Ordino (Andorra), Girona, Vic, Roses, Olot, ...
