Universe, exhibition by Héctor Lara in the Espacio Joven of Valladolid

The young Spanish artist Héctor Lara exhibits for the first time in Valladolid, having the pleasure of presenting his new collection “Universe” in the Youth Space of the Valladolid City Council, from October 1 to 31, 2020. Behind this initiative is Sara Sanz, author of the Blog The Biombo, which promotes Art in Spain from the capital of the Community of Castilla y León. Sponsored by the companies Lixpen and Cubiio, Lara currently resides in Valencia and stands out for its versatile nature, since he performs both portraiture, sculpture, graffiti, video-installation and 3D art.

In the UNIVERSE exhibition, Héctor Lara makes a display of media, which combines the most avant-garde techniques of the 21st century, with aesthetic influences from the 80s, such as vaporwave, punk or cyberpunk, using in the creation of his works of art, the 3D printing pencil, alternated with acrylics and spray, gold leaf and coated paper. In addition, in this exhibition you can also find works by the video artist Anima Stygios, dedicated to audiovisual production and video art, modeling in 3D.

“Universe” is the name of an exhibition that houses three collections by Héctor Lara. The first is “Lust”, which is intended to serve as a critique of the commercial exploitation of women as a sexual object, proposing the contemplation of the female figure from a purely artistic perspective. The second is “Anti-Decadence”, which makes an exercise in the renovation of classic works from the modernity lived by the artist. And the third is the “Universe” collection itself, which makes a reflection of a more spiritual nature, about myths such as the ferryman, theories such as that of parallel universes or the personal universe, and utopian concepts such as infinity or religion. .

The exhibition “Universe” tries to make us understand that human beings will not be able to find the answers to the universal questions that humanity has asked since its inception, since it is governed by reason, and the universe and everything that surrounds, escapes all logic and reason. Where do we come from? Where do we go? There is only one certainty, and that is that art has been universal since the beginning of time.

The exhibition can be visited in the Exhibition Hall of the Espacio Joven de Valladolid (Paseo de Zorrilla, 101, 47007 – Valladolid) from October 1 to 31, 2020 in its usual hours: Tuesday from 4 to 9 pm; Wednesday and Thursday from 11 am to 2 pm and from 4 pm to 9 pm; Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 2pm and from 4pm to 10pm.
