AF’s PULPBROTHER Installation Nods to the Artist’s Love of Satire and Sarcasm

Artemizia Foundation’s latest installation in the museum’s gallery belongs to Spanish painter Javier Mayoral, who is also more widely known as pulpbrother. The installation contains 23 identically sized pieces painted in the artist’s classic flat, Pop-art style. 


The museum acquired 21 pieces directly from pulpbrother and two from Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles earlier this month.

Mayoral’s work sarcastically touches on society’s obsession with vice, sex, seduction, pop culture, and outward appearances. He typically paints on small rectangular wooden panels  and uses flat planes of color, and extremely clever satirical phrases that imbue his work with a twist of dark humor. 


We’re thrilled that AF’s latest installation honors these themes and styles that give the artist his namesake.

“We can’t be more excited that Mayoral’s work will be available for everyone to enjoy in the museum,” says Sloane Bouchever, Founder and Director of Artemizia. “Pulpbrother is really gaining traction internationally as an artist, so having his original paintings in our collection is a fantastic way for us to bring exciting art from around the world to our community.”

 

Visitors can view pulpbrother’s work inside the main museum gallery. Admission is always free for members and $10 for non-members, which includes full museum access during business hours.
