A unique Pop Art Exhibition featuring original works by Andy Warhol carefully curated with an exclusive selection of original works by Austrian ‘spontaneous realist’ Voka, complemented by the distinctive style of Oxana and Spanish Contemporary artist Gustavo Peñalver Vico.

About

The Royal Opera Arcade Gallery will be featuring original works by Andy Warhol. Unequivocally the leading pioneer in Pop Art.
The masterpieces provide an overview of the crucial years in his career, and give an insight into how he shook the foundations of the academic world of painting and criticism in the second half of the 20th century. 

Andy Warhol's work will be complemented by original works of Austrian ‘spontaneous realist’ Voka, the distinctive style of Oxana, and Spanish Contemporary artist Gustavo Peñalver Vico.

Voka coined the term "Spontaneous Realism” as a trademark for his art. Voka defines this style as a revival of the significance of contemporary art, a valued tradition in a new era, with a new interpretation reflecting today ?s spirit of the time. His distinctive style, emerging from the dynamic of the moment, enables him to strikingly capture immediate reality while the observer is able to palpably feel the imbedded movement.

Oxana Prantl works are created without sketches, the most important in her work is the color selection, the images emerge of its own accord. For the artist the blooming of the idea is like a mosaic of colours. The different colours are added one after the other until the painting arises.

In 1986 Gustavo met the later mayor of Berlin, Klaus Wowereit, who – from then on – used to open his exhibitions in the capital. On behalf of a housing association Gustavo designed a multicolored house facade in Berlin-Lichtenberg, which is widely known as the “Gustavo-Haus“ and the „biggest artwork of Europe“. 
In 2014 his work out of 1.700 tiles on the quay wall of Cala Ratjada was completed.
