CARLOS BLANCO ARTERO
Madrid- born in 1983. "The project that I am currently developing revolves around the concept of crowd (multitud), both formally and stylistically as well as conceptually. I'm interested in the multitudinous representation of elements, in most cases characters that usually appear shouting. To increase this overwhelming and somewhat chaotic feeling, the images are located on a white background, which in my point of view disconnects the motif of the environment, focusing all attention on the concept of representation. My painting has been transformed in these years from a new figuration, to a more expressive, gestural painting, where the figurative element is still, but more blurred. Knowing the work of George Condo in New York was undoubtedly one of the starting points of my current project."
