It is not surprising that an essentially figurative artistic movement such as Pop Surrealism holds the portrait as one of its most cultivated genre. With an important humanist and popular stamp, pop surrealism deals with analyzing, interpreting and representing behavior and cultural manifestations of human beings from a borderline position between criticism and sweetness between the grotesque and the friendly between the naive and the adult.
Portraits has seven different points of view that highlight the versatility and eclecticism of pop surrealism, from disturbing portraits of Sara Sanz’s adult girls to the dauntless women of Crajes, through the poetic allegories of Mercedes de Bellard and Duma’s elusive portrayed; from the sly mutant creatures of Bakea to the adult rereadings of Gabi de la Merced and the scathing but friendly looking characters of Sergio Mora.
