Albert Pinya is an ultra-contemporary artist who lives and works in Palma, ranked among the Top 100,000 globally, and among the Top 1,000 in Spain.
In Pinya’s universe, everything is simple, energetic and dynamic. His work is based on a deliberate and ironic ingenuity that manages to dismantle the perverse structures of reality. He takes inspiration from movies, TV series and cartoons, and has quickly developed his own identifiable style, in which applies the codes of popular culture, comics, illustration and a thoughtful naive aesthetic that hides a precise treatment of the themes he explores.
The artworks of Pinya are a continuation of the rich tradition of pop art, begun in the second half of the 1950s by artists such as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Richard Hamilton. Pinya’s work, although no stranger to socio-political and ecological reflections, seems to laugh, in effect, at the dogmatic gravity that for some is the paradigm of our time. The works show lubricious linear forms, entering and exiting from different orifices, forming complex circuits and deep, pulsating spaces
His work denies “l’ art pour l’art” and regards art as a means of expression, which should be eminently communicative and always be based on an ideology. That is, rather than talking about ‘artistic creation’ we should talk about ‘artistic reaction’. Painting, drawing, intervention, installation, performance, graphic work and sound are the means with which he develops the discourse of his narrations. One of his greatest obsessions focuses on the study and observation of human beings and the way they establish relationships with society and with the environment.
