SPAIN, 1962

Luis Pérez Calvo is an artist whose work draws directly from urban popular music, circus, cinema, searching in El Rastro and collecting old comics. His imagination responds fundamentally to the most popular Spanish and American culture of the sixties to eighties.
Called by some archaeologist of popular culture, he re-reads, paints, draws, cuts, ironizes and pays homage in an almost compulsive way, without rest, to all those beings and memories that populate his memory and that he tries to recover in a melancholic but humorous attempt to catch a fetishized society of a recent past that disappears little by little.
