Joan Cornellà is bringing a new selection of cynical paintings to New York City’s GR Gallery. As part of a solo exhibition entitled “Keep it Real,” the internationally-acclaimed Spanish artist will display 20 pieces including works on canvas and paper, prints and varied merchandise. The latest series largely touches on environmental issues with the artist’s generous injections of dark humor.

“With no shame or fear to offend the viewer, Cornella’ insists in depicting surreal and macabre situations, always strongly connected with the latest society issues, where the characters cynically, but always cheerfully, do what should never be done,” said GR Gallery.
