ANGEL MATEO CHARRIS

Cartagena, Murcia, 1962

Presented by MY NAME’S LOLITA ART

Bachelor of Fine Arts by the San Carlos University of Valencia, this Murcian painter includes his work in the figurative line coined as “neometaphysics”.
Charris’s style is very influenced by comics, pop art, visual languages of American black cinema and certain classical authors, especially Edward Hopper. Another very common trait in his work is the reference to the history of art, as well as abundant literary nexuses.
His pieces continually quote consecrated works, participating in post-modernist postulates.
Charris’s paintings can be found in such important collections as the Argentaria Foundation, the Coca-Cola Foundation, the Bancaixa Collection, the Testimoni La Caixa Collection, the Reina Sofía National Art Center Museum, the IVAM, and the Artium de Vitoria among others.
