Manolo Valdés

(Valencia, 1942) After an early period at the San Carlos School of Fine Arts in his native Valencia, Manolo Valdés began his adventure as a painter.

During the 60’s and 70’s he was part of Equipo Crónica, with art as a vindictive tool. After its dissolution, he resumed his solo career, settling in the new capital of world art, New York, where his stay became indefinite.

Valdés’ work, which ranges from painting, collage and engraving to sculpture, revises, reinterprets and celebrates the history of art, establishing creative dialogues with the great masters of the past.
