About the Artist
More info

Andy Warhol (Pittsburgh, August 6, 1928-New York, February 22, 1987) was an American plastic artist who played a crucial role in the birth and development of Pop Art. Following a successful career as a professional illustrator, Warhol gained worldwide fame for his work in painting, avant-garde film, and literature, a notoriety that was backed by a skillful relationship with the media and his role as guru of modernity.
He used different media to create his works, such as hand drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, screen printing, sculpture, film, and music.
Fame and controversy aside, he is considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century due to his revolutionary artwork.

Joan Miró i Ferrà (Barcelona, April 20, 1893-Palma de Mallorca, December 25, 1983) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, engraver and ceramics artist. In his works he reflected his interest in the subconscious, in the "childish" and in the culture and traditions of Catalonia. Although he is associated with abstract art for his mature style of stylized and imaginary forms, in his youth he began with figuration, with strong Fauvist, Cubist and Expressionist influences, moving on to flat painting with a certain naive air.
After his stay in Paris, his work becomes more fanciful and dreamlike, coinciding with the points of surrealism and joining this movement.

Julian Opie (born 1958, London) is a visual artist who is part of the British New Sculpture movement.
Considered the current representative of modern portraiture, Opie uses the latest technologies applied to painting and, in addition to his work done by computer, in his sculptures and installations he incorporates vinyl with interior light, LED panels or liquid crystal screens.

The British artist has become internationally known thanks to his minimalist style of very simple, almost symbolic forms, which are supported by cryptograms. The representation of faces is reduced to some black surfaces and strokes, the color is only introduced in a flat way, just like a graphics program does. His representations of people and landscapes are based on photographs that he has previously worked on on the computer. In the late 1990s he began this minimalist approach to figurative representation that he has developed to perfection.

Manolo Valdés (Valencia, March 8, 1942) is a Spanish painter and sculptor living in New York. He was the introducer in Spain of a form of artistic expression that combines political and social commitment with humor and irony.
Influenced by Velázquez, Rembrandt, Rubens and Matisse, Manolo Valdés creates a large format work in which the lights and colors express a feeling of tactility due to the treatment given to the materials. His work forces whoever observes it to delve into memory and search for significant images from the history of art.
