About the artist
Macarrón, born in 1981 in Spain, is one of the most notable emerging artists known for his vivid dreamscapes, drawing inspiration from comic strips and the amorphous structures of French painter-and-sculptor Jean Dubuffet to the immersive works of Chilean Surrealist Roberto Matta.
Our artist Rafa Macarrón set a record 8.6x the estimate price with his renewed work < Rutina Fluor (diptych) > at Sothebys ‘Contemporary Art Evening Sale’.
