Manolo Valdés’s expansive multimedia practice riffs on and reinterprets art historical motifs and iconography. Early in his career, the artist co-founded Equipo Cronica. The group ​​embraced a Pop style while denouncing Francisco Franco’s regime and considering political power and historical narratives at large. In 1981, the group disbanded. Valdés has made paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures that adopt the idioms of famous artists ranging from Velázquez and Rembrandt to Picasso and Lichtenstein. He briefly studied at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Carlos de Valencia and has exhibited in New York, Paris, Mexico City, Madrid, Geneva, Berlin, and London. In 1999, he represented Spain at the Venice Biennale. Valdés’s work has sold for six figures at auction and belongs in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Moderna Museet, the Centre Pompidou, the Museo Reina Sofía, and the Museum of Modern Art.
