Pop Art.

Hugo Duchateau trained at the higher institute of architecture and applied arts in Hasselt. He was a founder member of the Research Group in 1967.

He is regarded as an avant-garde artist of the Pop Art movement. In terms of both intention and execution, his work is centred around the production and the existence of objects: by juxtaposing the painter's tools, such as brushes and rules, and the marks left on the canvas by these tools, Duchateau attempts to describe the myth of the tool rather than trying to give a dialectical definition of the paint as material (as was rigorously pursued by Toroni, for example). He has taken part in various collective exhibitions, notably the São Paulo Biennale of ...

Elisabeth Lebovici

French painter, sculptor and printmaker. He briefly studied architecture in 1960 at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris but was self-taught as a painter.

Such works brought him within the orbit of Pop art. Among his first paintings exhibited at the ...

Eduardo Serrano

Colombian sculptor, collagist and conceptual artist. He studied architecture at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Bogotá from 1959 to 1965 and began at this time to make collages influenced by Pop art. In 1966 he made the first of his Boxes, painted in strong flat colours, often red or yellow, to which he affixed industrial elements such as telephone handsets. Soon afterwards he began to make only white boxes, using the colour to complement the mystery of the objects they contained, such as the heads, arms and legs of dolls, machine parts, wooden eggs and domestic objects; the penetrating humour and arbitrariness with which he juxtaposed such things recalled the spirit of Dada....

Pop Art.

Ugalde studied architecture, fine art and philosophy in Madrid. He then won a scholarship to stay in New York in 1986, where he lived until 1989. He now lives and works in Madrid.

He subsequently photographed 'anything which grabbed (his) attention, deserted streets, retired villagers, tumbledown houses', to evoke contemporary rural Spain. He adds large splashes of white or grey paint and sticks parts of postcards, images of animals or people from comic strips to the images obtained. In ...
