Art Lounge Gallery from Lisbon in Art Madrid15

Lego Splash. Pimax.

 

Art Lounge saw the light in 2005. Result of the personal experience of its founder, Ricardo Tenreiro da Cruz, who wanted to melt through the gallery his particular vision of the world in which they are joined two perspectives, on one hand, his knowledge and professional trajectory in Economics and Market analysis and, on the other hand, his passion for Art, especially powered after a studies stage in London.

From then, the activity of the gallery is identified with a clear line of actuation: bringing to Portugal renowned international artists with upwards prices, both due to an almost natural effect derived from the globalization as the will of getting over the national frontiers and helping to a bigger knowledge of movement and reality of art abroad.

 

With this goal, Ricardo Tenreiro has recently changed the place of exhibitions and he counts today with a space of almost 500m2 and high quality facilities, thinking of attract a selective and rigorous art sector. He has represented Portugal, giving notice of the good health of the neighbour country's sector, in all the fairs he has attended to (Mexico, Dubai, India, etc.).

Art Lounge takes land in Art Madrid'15 with an eclectic and enriching proposal by five artists: Uiso Alemany, João Noutel, Pimax, Florian Raiss y Carmen Calvo. Thus, we count with sculpture works, paintings, and mixed pieces that diversify the offer of the gallery.

 

Love Hurt. Pimax.

 

We can highlight Pimax , creator known by his performances. With a previous experience that sink its roots among the electronic music, the social non-conformism, the protest actions, and the graffiti universe, Pimax allows to see his critical attitude, harsh and scathing sometimes, in many of his works. In his last creations the artist tries to think about the pass of time and the power of the frozen instant, shown through resins and materials of great plasticity.

 
 

Por encima del error. Carmen Calvo.

On the opposite side, although without lack of critical sense, is Carmen Calvo . This Valencian artist feeds also from pop-art influences, above all in her beginnings, and she has been progressively developing her own style in which the use of photographies as basis structure and the application of collage produce surprising and stimulating results to the viewer.

Street art is the expression of art in public spaces either in the form of murals in restored buildings; graffiti; street painting or curated artistic actions. What are the backstories of each artist? What are the social issues affecting our city? This social, cultural and educational project was born in 2016 to answer these questions and show the message hidden by the works of art of so many national and international artists who have painted the Embajadores neighbourhood. It became the first daily street art tour in Madrid.

Cooltourspain will show you the Spanish capital in an alternative way and its guides will share their knowledge about the best street art in the Lavapiés and Malasaña areas. In the same way, its Foundation collaborates with non-profit projects and local associations so that people at risk of social exclusion can learn the techniques used by Madrid graffiti artists. The tour lasts two hours and begins at the Valle Inclán Theater Entrance.
