ROMULO ROYO & LUIS ROYO: THE DREAM OF FANTASY

Laberinto Gris announces the first exhibition of the year 2024, to be held at the MEAM (European Museum of Modern Art) in Barcelona, in which our artists Romulo Royo and Luis Royo will exhibit some of their most representative works as well as part of their latest work that revolves around the work of Francisco de Goya. 

 

As already anticipated by the museum itself: "We are pleased to announce the arrival of an extraordinary exhibition that will transport visitors to the most enigmatic and magical corners of the imagination. From February 1 to March 31, 2024, the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) in Barcelona will host the fascinating work of renowned artists Luis & Romulo Royo under the title "The Dream of Fantasy"."

 

The inauguration will take place next February 1 at 6:30 pm, will begin in the main hall of the MEAM, where the museum director and the artists will dedicate a few words to the attendees, and the event will continue on the second floor, where some of the most iconic pieces of the career of both artists are exhibited, such as Beyond, in the case of Romulo Royo or Full Moon, in the case of Luis Royo. 

 

"The exhibition reveals the persistence of fantasy through travel and dualities in the works of Luis & Romulo Royo.

- Journeys: From the homage to Goya to the worlds of dream goddesses and other cultures in "Goddesses of Nibiru," the Royos take viewers through timeless journeys that explore the sensuality of the occult and fantasy.

- Dualities: Elements such as feathers, tattoos and jewelry become timeless amulets that persist in the works of both artists. Luis Royo, internationally recognized as one of the best Fantasy illustrators, plays with dualities between beauty and beast, life and death."

In addition, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy the latest works the artists have been working on. The Homage to Goya series, is a project currently alive and in progress, which will grow throughout 2024, and whose presence in this exhibition is a unique occasion to enter into this new universe that is being created in the artists' studios. 

 

"Despite the almost 300 years that separate their births, Aragonese artists Luis & Romulo Royo share roots with the genius Francisco de Goya. The arid and extreme land of northern Spain, its stubborn and sober climate, has left an indelible mark on their creations. Through different aesthetics, intentions and protagonists, the obsession for fantasy persists, linking their works over time."
