Manolo Quejido
Rojo
Red
1975
Manolo Quejido was a member of Madrid’s New Figuration, a group of artists who, between 1975 and 1980, devoted themselves to painting outside the dominant aesthetic and cultural conventions prevalent at the end of the dictatorship. With a language between Pop and Neo-Expressionism, their works successfully reflected the complex moment of Spain’s political transition. Combining words, phrases, numbers and symbols with images, Quejido’s paintings are characterised by a figuration and colour close to those of comics, and by the use of a carefree brushstroke that sought to escape the transcendence of Informalist and matter painting that had dominated Spanish art in the preceding decades.
