Description
Sean Mackaoui

Sean Mackaoui (Lousana, 1969), legitimate heir of Schwitters, Duchamp, Man Ray or Joan Brossa, combines in his collages and objects elements at first sight incongruous to generate new meanings, looking for surprise, humor and poetry in magazine clippings, newspapers or found words. More than combinations of elements, juxtapositions of iconographies, the collages and objects give rise to new entities and realities, exposing new, surprising messages about society and the current political situation. Mackaoui plays with the deceptiveness of appearance, generating a realm of surprise, juxtaposing idyllic and seemingly innocent images with disturbing ones, reflecting on the relationships of states and their power. His collages have been published in national and international magazines and newspapers. Book covers for the publishing houses Santillana, Espasa Calpe, Lengua de Trapo, Anaya and Temas de Hoy. Illustrations in the books "Crimes Exemplary" by Max Aub and "My First 80,000,000 Words" by Media Vaca. He has created the image for different brands, festivals, fairs and posters, including those made in collaboration with Isidro Ferrer for the Centro Dramático Nacional. He has made multiple group and solo exhibitions nationally and internationally. Among his solo exhibitions highlights in 2008 "Zoco" at the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid where he also made in 1995 his first solo exhibition "Mundo Imagen". Among his publications stands out "La Garra de la Guerra" Media Vaca, first prize for the Best Edited Book, category of Children and Youth Books, awarded by the Ministry of Culture, 2003. He is Honorary Director of The College Centre of San Francisco, USA.
