Javier Calleja Creates Shameless Pop Artworks for New Spain ExhibitDubbed “I hope you don’t mind.”
Javier Calleja, the Spanish artist who apprenticed under the tutelage of Yoshitomo Nara, is set to launch a new exhibition at the Yusto/Giner gallery in Malaga, Spain. Entitled “I hope you don’t mind,” the forthcoming showcase will feature over a dozen new works that depict Calleja’s bright-eyed cartoon characters that draw influences from Pop, Surrealism, and Minimalism. As per usual, the subjects boast hard-hearted phrases across their two-dimensional bodies such as “Don’t Take It All To Heart” and “Fuck You All” that reflect the artist’s “everyday reality” said the gallery in a statement.
Preview select works above and expect “I hope you don’t mind” to launch to the public on June 8. For more information, head over to Yusto/Giner’s official website. In related news, BEYOND THE STREETS and Modernica teamed up on a special capsule of Case Study fiberglass chairs.
