Buenos Aires (Argentina), 1989. Lives and works in Cadaqués (Spain).
Joaquín Lalanne’s artworks accommodates diverse references, from Baroque to Pop art, while vindicating art’s role as a space for freedom of expression. His paintings contain drops of classicism, comics and cartoons, transforming supposedly antagonistic characters and landscapes in a connected composition.
Lalanne’s has the ability to devise spaces in which the scales and the superposition of elements achieve a surrealistic and metaphysical aura. He excels at detail, perspective and light.
Presenting, pictorially, in his canvases, the imprint of his peculiar vision of the world, based on a dialectic between classical philosophy and the current daily caos. Mixing imagination and irony, Lalanne takes us to his genuine and original universe.
