poster for Alvaro Barrios "Dreams About Marcel Duchamp"

This event has ended.

Comprised of fourteen large-scale paintings and five works on paper, the exhibition "Dreams About Marcel Duchamp" deals with Barrios' fascination with Duchamp. Alvaro Barrios is known for his heterogeneous compositions, much influenced by Surrealism, Pop Art and Conceptual Art. In assimilating and adapting the lessons of these Twentieth Century art movements in his own personal and innovative manner, the artist creates a unique aesthetic style, which manifests in the realm of fantasy. Barrios draws upon the comic book popular culture theme by outlining his cartoon-like figures with bold black outlines, including text in his compositions and employing flat vivid colors.
