Cristian Blanxer draws his subject matter from day-to-day life. His paintings are a mix of naturalistic, pop art and abstract images.
For Blanxer, painting is a means to negotiate the abundance of imagery emerging from Spain—from the most banal examples of still-life to iconic propaganda and photojournalism. ‘Through making, I render all things equal’, he says.
Painting is also a means for him to challenge traditional expectations and perception. He considers it the duty of artists to intervene and distort reality, estranging subjects from their original context and significance.
