Sanchez is an artist with a long career in the fields of design, photography, photomontage, outsider calligraphy and drawing. Indispensable for understanding the graphic development of the city of Barcelona after Franco’s dictatorship, one of his lesser-known faces is precisely that of a draughtsman who practices a variety of techniques on a daily basis and who convincingly vindicates the value of this visual discipline, “the oldest, most modern, difficult and cheapest means of expression in the world”.
Collaborator and advisor to the Club del Dibujo, he has been awarded the Laus Prize six times and the National Design Prize in 1992. In recent years he has held the retrospective exhibitions América, America at Casa de América, Classical, modern, jazz and tropical at Palau Robert in Barcelona and at Blanquerna Cultural Centre in Madrid, as well as the exhibition America Sanchez. Romanesque Portraits. Inks on paper at Museu d’Art de Catalunya. His work is represented in collections such as those of Lafuente Archive, Museu del Disseny de Barcelona, Biblioteca de Catalunya, IVAM in Valencia and Moma in New York.
