The Museo Picasso Málaga has invited Guillermo Pérez Villalta to give his views on The Echo of Picasso exhibition.
For an activity entitled Resonances, the museum’s galleries will be a meeting place and host a discussion on Pablo Picasso’s work and its repercussions on contemporary art. Through a guided tour, several artists present their different interpretations of the themes examined in the exhibition.
Guillermo Pérez Villalta, a painter, sculptor, printmaker and designer as well as a member of the new figurative movement of Madrid and one of the foremost representatives of Postmodernism in Spain, began studying architecture in 1966. Although he dropped out of university to devote himself to painting, throughout his career he has designed public buildings and spaces. Pérez Villalta started out in Madrid in 1968 with a style characterised by ‘manneristic’ colours and contorted figures. During those years he was considered a member of the cultural movement known as the movida madrileña. In the mid-1980s he evolved towards warmer and ‘dirtier’ colours and a looser technique that may recall Titian and certain seventeenth-century masters. His works from the 1990s display a shift towards more sharply defined forms and, subsequently, an exploration of oriental, rococo and geometric aesthetics.
