Statement

Manolo Valdés is a Spanish artist working in paint, sculpture, and mixed media.

Influenced by Rembrandt, Rubens, and Matisse, Valdés creates large works in which the lighting and colors express a sensation of tactility. His work is forceful and decorated with historical art symbols that combined political and social obligations with humor and irony.

Throughout his career Valdés has never stopped investigating and reinventing Art, with an insatiable appetite for conceptual and plastic experimentation.
