San's solo show at Stolen Space Gallery- London
Its great to see San coming to the UK, when i was in Barcelona I had the great honor of meeting this awesome guy! His street art is seriously ridiculous and his studio work leaves me in awe. He has the best line work and his almost scary attention to every detail really makes his work unique and most of all recognizable.
So we can understand why Stolenspace has picked up this amazing Spanish artists and last night presented San’s premier U.K solo exhibition ‘Pygmalion’. Showcasing new work from the renowned Spanish street artist on canvas and paper as well as out door mural work. The show will also see the release of a limited edition hand pulled screen print by San.
About the show:
In Greek Mythology, Pygmalion was a legendary Cypriot sculptor who carved a woman out of ivory, in which he fell madly in love. For this show, Sans work comments on humans love for the things we create, particularly money and weapons, with often destructive consequences.
Born Daniel Munoz Rodriquez, San is an internationally recognized and commissioned illustrator, painter, and street artist. Born in a small Spanish village near the Portuguese border, San currently works and resides in Madrid. His artwork is influenced by magical realism, graffiti, and the culinary arts. In a recent interview in Juxtapoz Magazine, he remarked, “I think today my work is a mixture of classical drawing and contemporary art languages. Nowadays, nature is the basis of my work.” San has shown his fine art internationally, as well as his street art in cities across Europe.
