Eduardo Arroyo
Spanish, 1937–2018
Follow

Polymathic and largely self-taught, Eduardo Arroyo produces inventive, piquant paintings, sculptures, prints, and stage sets. His career has been shaped by his early years as a journalist and by growing up in General Franco’s Spain, the impetus for his move to Paris in 1958. There, in the midst of avant-gardist experiments with abstraction, he began to paint, creating compositions informed by Realism, Expressionism, and Abstraction. He borrows words and images from a range of sources, including advertisements and graphic design, and quotes the works of other artists in his compositions. With a committed connection to the social and political realities of the world beyond the edges of his canvas, Arroyo uses his art as a platform to lampoon dictators, bullfighters, soldiers, Spanish gentlemen, and even famous artists like Marcel Duchamp and Joan Miró, provoking outrage, delight, and often controversy.
