Sergio Mora is one of the leading exponents of the Pop Surrealist movement in Spain. Born in Barcelona in 1975, he studied at the famed “La LLotja” (Barcelona Arts and Crafts School). He is painter, illustrator, video director, designer, performer and storyteller. His artistic work is intense, rich and varied, ranging from book publishing, collaboration with magazines, working with some of Spain’s renowned musicians, participating in advertising campaigns and, of course, exhibiting his paintings in galleries around the world.
Working mainly in acrylics, Mora creates a colorful world full of dream and circus characters, where tattooed women have bunny heads and Spock appears as a toreador. His colorful world, rendered with immaculate detail, have a playful narrative quality; his characters appear in impossible proportions and are grouped with unlikely companions, appearing journeying towards unseen destinations or convening for odd celebrations. Like a true post-modernist, pop culture references punctuate his work with often amusing effect; is that Elton John riding a flying flamingo?
Colorful, amusing and strange … just the way I like it! Ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes on the Pop Surreal art of Sergio Mora.
