Ismael Lagares (Huelva, Spain, 1978) is one of the most promising young artists on the national and international art scene. In general, his work is developed in a large format painting, of expressionist style and with an important material load. Due to his experimental methodology, it has a colourful, vibrant, fast and loose touch that fully enters into abstraction. Lagares has been present in exhibitions in cities such as Valencia and Alicante and has received awards in numerous national and international competitions.
Nanon Morsink (Holland, 1964) uses mixed media and by exploring different materials, Nanon explores a narrative where she is the covert protagonist, seeking to reflect her relationship with the world. Among her most recognisable works are intriguing figures made from recycled materials, ropes and plastics from Andalusian greenhouses, as well as woven and intervened objects. Nanon is of Dutch origin, since 2017 he has been working in Málaga, where he lives. He exhibits regularly in Spain, as well as in the Netherlands and other countries. In September 2019, her work was shown at the World Textile Biennial in Madrid where she won the second prize for 'Textile Art Photography', recently her work has been exhibited in Chicago, Illinois.
LUIS PÉREZ CALVO
Luis Pérez Calvo (Madrid, Spain, 1962) is a painter and illustrator whose work draws directly from the circus, cinema, popular urban music, rummaging in El Rastro, street parties and old comics. Raised in the popular Madrid neighbourhoods of Lavapiés and Embajadores, his imaginary responds to the most traditional and popular Spanish culture from the 60s to the 80s, eminently. Thus, in his works, the Beach Boys rub shoulders with Superman, Batman or Ibáñez's characters; classic food dishes with fragments of old magazines and Bazooka chewing gum wrappers or advertising for Lagarto soaps.
Toño Barreiro (Zamora, Spain, 1965) has been developing, since the mid-eighties, a multidisciplinary work that alternates photography, painting, sculpture and digital processes. The questioning of the limits of the pictorial medium, through the play with sculptural elements and the rupture of the traditional framework of painting, is a constant in his work. A whole series of new methodologies and creative processes can be appreciated in it, giving rise to paintings that are at times sinuous and synaesthetic, at others geometric and at the same time organic. At its origin is the articulation of line and plane, playing with the concepts of deconstruction, symbiosis, the most elementary biological processes, superposition or folding.
ISABEL ALONSO VEGA
Isabel Alonso Vega (Madrid, Spain, 1968) holds a degree in Fine Arts from the Complutense University. She currently lives and works in Madrid. In 2013 she started to shape and be an active part of the Centro de Arte Urgel 3 in Madrid. This organization promotes international interaction between European artists through residencies, art exhibitions, international art fairs, etc. His work has been shown in numerous galleries in Europe and the United States such as Krause Gallery (NY), White Noise Gallery (Rome, Italy), Löwenbrau Kunst Zurich (Zurich, Switzerland), Ulf Larsson Gallery (Cologne, Germany), among others.
Wendy White (Connecticut, USA, 1971) was born and raised in Deep River, Connecticut. After receiving her Fine Arts training at the University of Fine Arts and Design in Savannah, Georgia, and completing her Master of Fine Arts training at the Mason Gross School of the Arts in New Jersey, the artist moved to New York in 2007, where she lives in Chinatown, Manhattan. The artist, who began her career as a sculptor and was educated in textiles and three-dimensional fibres, creates mixed media works that defy the limitations of the traditional canvas; an approach to creation that reflects the nature of her home and muse, the vibrant city of New York. White has participated in group and solo exhibitions throughout the United States, as well as internationally, from Miami to Paris, Madrid to Tokyo. He has also received a Painting Fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts (2012) and a George Segal Painting Grant (2008).
Miguel Núñez (Cádiz, Spain, 1991) is based on the contemplation of the environment and the embrace of tradition, giving rise to representations of classical sculptures and other archaeological elements in the natural environment. Theatrical compositions where the archaeological manifests personal concerns and the landscape is understood as something to be lived and not to be seen. Abstraction is also very present in his work, not in a visible way but in a conceptual way during the process, since abstract painting, like all constructed things, is subject to a well-defined limitation. In his case that limitation is his own experience with painting. His interest in classical sculpture is due to the fact that they determined human representation at the most dignified level.
Flávia Junqueira (São Paulo, Brazil, 1985) is mainly concerned with photography. The visual universe of childhood and the construction of an imaginary about this period permeate the artist's work from the beginning of her production. Her works are part of collections such as MAM-SP, MIS-SP, MABFAAP, Museu do Itamaraty, RedBull Station, World Bank and Instituto Figueiredo Ferraz. With a PhD from the Instituto de Arte da Universidade Estadual de Campinas - UNICAMP, a Master's degree in Visual Poetry from the Universidade de São Paulo and a Bachelor of Arts from Fundação Armando Álvares Penteado, the artist also completed her postgraduate studies in photography at FAAP.
