Abraham Lacalle

Biography

Abraham Lacalle (Almería, 1962). Abraham Lacalle is one of the most internationally renowned Spanish artists of his generation. His work is characterised by the rich and wide variety of plastic and intellectual resources used, from allegorical reinvention to apparently indeterminate and unconnected figuration, which generates a necessary visual and intellectual exercise on the part of the spectator. He began his career in the 1980s, and in 1994 he won a scholarship for artistic promotion from the Casa de Velázquez. In his canvases there are references to great masters such as Duchamp, Picasso, Mondrian or Philip Guston, using a special subjectivity in the treatment of colour. At the same time, there are, in an ironic and sarcastic way, constant references to the great artistic and literary movements of the 20th century and an acid social criticism. The painter has been exhibiting in ARCO, through different galleries, since 1987 and has been collaborating for years with the Malborough Gallery. Works in collections: Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; Fundación Coca-Cola España; Fundación Luis Cernuda, Seville; Prosegur, Madrid; Fundación Santander Central Hispano; Universidad de Salamanca; Casa de Velázquez, Madrid; Colección Testimonio, Caixa de Pensiones, Barcelona...
