Antoni Hervàs presents enthusiastic, vividly coloured, genre-bending explorations of the possibilities of drawing that often deal with overlooked aspects of subversive popular spectacle, from carnival and burlesque to synchronised swimming and amusement parks. In recent years, he has produced exuberant collage-based environments out of humble materials, cardboard murals, papier-mâché sculptures, low-tech video displays and live performances. Often departing from existing graphic representations, personal archives and other firsthand testimony, the sometimes jarring new configurations he makes through drawing manage to joyfully animate dialogues with apparently unconnected historical situations and imaginaries, whether between the 1970s Barcelona cabaret scene and Greek mythology in El misterio de Caviria (2016) or the gender-crossing stage of traditional English pantomime and a circus of horrors in Sausages (2021). Antoni Hervàs studied fine arts at the Universitat de Barcelona (2006) and engraving and printing at the Escola Llotja. His solo exhibitions include Copacabana, at The RYDER Projects, Madrid (2021), and Sausages, at OKELA, Bilbao (2021). He has participated in several group exhibitions, including Adiós, que estés bien, Comunidad de Madrid museums (2019), and Generaciones 2018, La Casa Encendida, Madrid (2018). Hervàs has been a resident at Gasworks, London (2018), and the 18th Street Arts Center, Los Angeles (2017), and won the 2016 Premi Ciutat de Barcelona d’Arts Visuals.  More information: antonihervas.com
