Portraits @ Plastic Murs: Pop Up Art at its Best

As pop surrealism analyses and celebrates popular culture in its own unique way, therefore it is not surprising that portraits have become a significant focus. Portraits – the very cataloging of a human being – have given artists the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and desires on both the individual and humankind in our modern age. Interpreting portraits through pop surrealism certainly allows for some interesting outcomes!

Plastic Murs is celebrating the modern freedom of pop surrealism through seven different perceptions: Bakea, Crajes, Duma, Gabi de la Merced, Mercedes de Bellard, Sara Sanz and Sergio Mora will all be exploring the boundaries of the modern portrait in this alluring exhibition. Come and join in with what promises to be an exhibition of discovery. Develop a deeper insight into Sara Sanz’s disturbing adult girls, the ever crisp and elusive art of Duma, Bakea’s playful mutant world and the poetic allegories of Mercedes de Bellard among a host of other exceptional treats.

Plastic Murs pop up art gallery has been making a scene in Madrid as it continues to showcase pop surreal and urban art. By constantly searching for and exhibiting high quality work, Plastic Murs is raising the best in underground art into the realm of fine art, for all to see.

The gallery is planning a special opening on Friday 28th November, 7-10pm, but for those who can’t make it you can visit Portraits until the 1st December.
