Arroyo, Eduardo Boxing GN163
-by Eduardo Arroyo
Born in Madrid, Arroyo has two passions: boxing and kangaroos. He declares that he is himself a kangaroo and has founded the "Kangaroo Club" together with like-minded artists. On his watch "Boxing", which is dominated by the colours of the Spanish national flag, sits a boxing kangaroo which either pummels Time forwards -- or deals it a knockout punch. With Spanish temperament, of course.
(b Madrid, 26 Feb 1937). Spanish painter, sculptor, potter, printmaker and stage designer. As a painter he was mainly self-taught. After working as a journalist in 1957, he left Spain in 1958 to avoid military service, settling in Paris. There he continued to work both as a journalist and painter. From 1968 to 1972 he lived in Milan, returning to Paris in 1973. His work developed from expressionism to realism (Nueva figurina), which reflected on the pictorial language and function of painting and the artists role in society. He manipulated ready-made images, words and elements derived from commercial art and the work of other painters. His pieces formed series whose titles referred to the legacy of the Spanish Civil War and the contemporary political situation to help make their critical point. His work frequently provoked controversy.
