The World of Illustration
5 Dec 2018 - 28 Feb 2019|
Luna13 Galeria will present the exhibition “The world of illustration” at the Techhub office in London. Showcasing a selection of works by eight different artist, with the strong presence of female creators, it will be opened until the end of February 2019.
The exhibiting artists lead us into their particular worlds through their illustrations. Alba Blázquez, Alejandra Ramos, Ana Soler, Araceli Garcia, Cristina Fernandez, Daniela Ardanaz, Mar Blanco y Pau Sanz i Vila come from very different places of the Spanish geography and beyond: Madrid, Vigo, Alicante, Valencia or Buenos Aires.
On this exhibition traditional painting techniques and brushes are mixed with graphic design and new technologies. Acrylic, ink, collage and watercolour are the techniques chosen by the artists to bring us into a world that pretends to tell beyond the text that accompanies them, beyond the purely decorative image.
The female figure is also the center subject of many of the pieces displayed. Some have intense eyes and a hint of melancholy, which may or may not be people of our time. Others are linked to the seasons, where nature is expressed through these female faces. Others have a surreal and macabre touch reminiscent of Hitchcock and Dali. We can also see works inspired by the design and illustration of the 1970s and others with a strong Japanese style. Six women imbued in their zen world take us to that distant and ancient culture.
The exhibition will be opened to the public until February 28. Entrance is free by appointment only. You can book your visit at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the directors of Luna13 Galería (07909667097).
