Marlborough Fine Art is pleased to present Manolo Valdés’ first solo exhibition in the UK in over 10 years.

About

Valdés has exhibited with Marlborough’s galleries for 25 years, primarily in New York, but also in Barcelona, London, Madrid, Monaco and Santiago. One of the most significant Spanish artists of the last century, Valdés (b.1942, Valencia) works across drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture.

The exhibition brings together recent paintings, sculptures and works on paper that explore the artist’s unique and distinct visual language. Valdés began his training as a painter at the age of 15 in Valencia. During the 1960s, he formed Equipo Crónica, an artistic team that used Pop Art to question the Spanish dictatorship of Franco and the history of art itself. After the group dissolved in 1981, Valdés reinvented his work creating the figurative, expressive style centered on art historical motifs which he continues to be known for today.
