I just understand Pop Art and Street art words…
Sergi Mestres started painting in the 2000 and he defines himself as a self-taught painter.
Very influenced by American Pop Art and Street Art, he started working with acrylics, sprays, markers and charcoals to develop his artworks. Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat have been key inspirations for his stylistic development.
His artwork is based on all that is perceived visually in the streets. One of his objectives is to represent urban dynamism, combined with bright colours that transmit joy.
Barcelona has also been a source of inspiration and the basis of his work.
Everything that connects with cinema, music, sports and news is a reference for his artistic expression and motivates his work as a pure artist.
Shapes and colors captivate his background and makes him move towards urban worlds, through collage or decollage techniques.
By transforming different realities into small works, he believes this is the way the new street / pop art works.
He affirms: “I love painting and creating every day.”
Just let me know what’s your dream and I’ll make it come true under my pop art perspective…
I’m very proud to show you some artworks recently acquired by collectors around the world…
