GREAT RECEPTION OF ROYO 80'S 90'S OPENING EXHIBITION AT LABERINTO GRIS

We would like to thank you all for the great reception of the opening of our exhibition Royo 80's 90's. Special thanks to Eduardo Mena, Director of the Museum of Historical Informatics who gave a wonderful speech of the video game history as well as Luis Royo who shared with us the importance of illustration for the development of video games and his experience illustrating many covers from novels to VHS films.

Many people enjoyed in person our opening exhibition held last Friday 10th February. It was a great opportunity for collectors and fans of the work of Luis Royo to be able to enjoy a selection of his most successful works from the 80s and 90s. They could appreciate in detail original covers in our Gallery. Airbrush traces and watercolours where close seen by our public. Several atmospheres gathered from sci-fi settings to wild far west lands along with, now considered vintage, microcomputers were shown in a distended evening.

The originals exhibited and the warm welcome made the evening a gorgeous meeting, in which we were able to share the nostalgia and the memory of the 80s and 90s through the artist's imagination.

The words of the Director of the Museum of Historical Informatics Eduardo Mena narrated with emphasis on the beginnings of the video game world were illustration was the connection point between the different universes that pop culture offered at that time and the general public. In this way, a totally renewing aesthetic and characteristic of that time arose, in which Luis Royo stands out internationally, thanks to whom we were able to learn about his first years dealing with publishers worldwide.

The afternoon ended with a book signing where the public was able to get closer to the artist, who gave dedications both to those who bought some of the books during the event, as well as those who brought the books that have accompanied them throughout their lives. Once again, Laberinto Gris appreciates you were able to come back to our space to enjoy the art of illustration together.
