THE POP-ART PIONEER RICHARD HAMILTON

Photo of the exhibition

 

Richard Hamilton (1922- 2011), one of the faces of British art. He was the promoter of pop art. He began working in the advertising industry and later draftsman. After a twist of fate, he exhibited his first solo show in 1950. Influenced by Cézanne, cubism, futurism and chronography, he began his journey through movement and perspective. Industrial design is an element difficult to explain what it is today known as pop art.

It is the art of great graphic designs, which can be disc covers or advertising posters. This new technique fused popular culture with the aesthetics of art. Thus was born the pop art and all its slopes. To elevate to the category of the work, the everyday objects with which the people of a foot identify itself feels. The myths, a resource that came a lot and opened the door for others like Warhol to expand in a free and creative.

The exhibition that is in the IVAM (Valencian Institute of Modern Art), was inaugurated on November 10 and available until February 26. The keys to reading the sample are, objects, interiors, self-portraits and people. All is a case study and his work more. The exhibition is articulated from the genres used by the artist in the length of his career.

To the sample must be added the films about the artist, Richard Hamilton. Documentary James Scott made in 1969 in close collaboration with the artist, and Richard Hamilton in the reflet of Marcel Duchamp directed by Pascal Goblot in 2014. All a beauty for all who want to review this great artist. For those who do not know it is a mandatory artist in your catalog of teachers.

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.
