Javier Mariscal presents a retrospective exhibition in Barcelona

The Ignacio de Lassaletta Gallery presents a selection of works by the artist during December to January 23

 

The creator of Cobi, the Olympic mascot of Barcelona in 1992, has decided to part with some of his work. Javier Mariscal, who recently made statements about his economic problems following the crisis, exposes for sale 55 works from different stages of his career, during the months of December 2015 and January 2016, in the gallery Ignacio de Lassaletta, at number 47 of the Rambla de Catalunya.

The exhibition, which includes articles especially from the90s, has paintings in watercolor, charcoal, wax, ink and oil, as well as a sculpture. Mariscal is an image creator who develops his work through various media and through different disciplines, such as comics, illustration, graphic, industrial and textile design, as well as painting, sculpture, interior design, and animated and multimedia creations. The selection offered for sale in the gallery Ignacio de Lassaletta has not been made by Mariscal, who feels very attached to each work, and preferred that others choose the jobs which, eventually, will be freed.

In this journey through the artist's work we find sketches and drawings for the animated film Chico y Rita, that Mariscal directed with Fernando Trueba, and several own looks to Barcelona and places as emblematic as La Pedrera, always under the prism of the creator born in Valencia.

While he sells this selection of pieces, the artist prepares a web of portraits, a direct internet service with an initial cost of 125 euros, where Mariscal makes a portrait on the model of a photograph. Thus, Mariscal continues to seek new ways of distribution of artistic creation and connection with the audience, transcending the physical barriers.
