FOR YOU, INSTAGRAMMER
Mar 2, 2019
After the first days of celebration of the fourteenth edition of Art Madrid, we have been able to immerse ourselves in social media, especially in Instagram, to know which works are the most photographed. In this article, we show you the pieces that you can not miss when you come to visit Art Madrid'19.
Undoubtedly, one of the most appealing works to visitors is that of the young José Ramón Lozano (BAT Gallery Alberto Cornejo). His very close-up female portraits are, looking directly at the viewer, equally seducing and intriguing him. A painter specialized in portraiture, Lozano affirms that through this genre "he can transmit more of his work to the spectators". His work is a perfect manifesto of the new possibilities that even today can characterize such a traditional discipline and genre, as well as being a clear example of the unlimited power of young creation. Likewise, in the same stand, are the works of the Slovak photographer Mária Švarbová and those of Lantomo, a great Italian artist passionate about Chinese culture, these are also featured on social media.
Naturally, the sculptures of François Bel (Galerie Barrou Planquart), known as "Big Bangs" are one of the most shared images on Instagram. This artist, interested in new realism, street art and pop culture, makes impressive encapsulations in synthetic glass of a decisive moment, but at the same time reflects some of the great icons of the contemporary world: the concern of time passage, self-centeredness or materialism. He shares the critical vision of the state of things with another of the most prominent artists on social media: Layziehound Coka (ODA Gallery), a South African artist who works from a very gestural figuration and who will be accompanying us throughout the celebration of Art Madrid.
Many attendees have photographed the works of the Galería Hispánica stand (Madrid-Mexico City), where you can find pieces by American, Italian and Spanish authors, such as Rafael Barrios, Peter Antono, Paul Rousso or Mr. Brainwash (Thierry Guetta). The same is happening at the 3 punts gallery stand, where the works by Samuel Salcedo, Gerard Mas, Alejandro Monge or Kiko Miyares stand out, this last one also being present in the space of the Gallery Arancha Osoro. The works by Collage Habana artists, Andy Llanes Bultó, Ernesto Rancaño, Roldán Lauzán Eiras y Daniel R. Collazo, have been photographed and shared on social media.
In the stand of Schmalfuss the works by Carlo Borer also stand out, abstract sculptures made of steel in which the spectators find an interesting game of reflections; likewise sculptures by Oliver Czarnetta, mysterious faces isolated with secrets inside. In the Robert Drees space, the most portrayed are the pieces in rubber by the South Korean Sun Rae Kim and paintings by the Spanish Pepa Salas. Also, within the proposal of the Bea Villamarín Gallery are works by Carlos Tárdez, Patricia Escutia and Mònica Subidé, whom we also find in the Yiri Arts gallery. We also highlight the works by Isabel Alonso Vega (Fucking Art Gallery), made from smoke and methacrylate, pieces that speak to viewers of "the intangible, of what is present but can hardly be seen, it is almost impossible to touch and much less to catch".
The One Project space, the program curated by Nerea Ubieto, is having great success on social media. Pieces by Nuria Mora (Gallery About Art), Virginia Rivas (DDR Art Gallery), Manuela Eichner (RV Culture and Art) or those by Alejandra Atarés (Víctor) Lope) are the most shared images by instagrammers. Finally, we are happy to see that Rubén Martín de Lucas's audio-visual installation that welcomes the audience at the entrance is one of the works that is being recorded and photographed the most. We hope that this small guide will help everyone who wants to keep and share what they have seen in Art Madrid'19!
