Carlos Tárdez

Carlos Tárdez is a Spanish artist who graduated in Fine Arts at the Complutense University of Madrid. He works with both sculpture and painting, and introduces mythological references in his works, so that they have double meanings and metaphors, and sometimes ironies. His works on canvas are hyperrealistic in style, with simple compositions, in which the background takes on a conceptual meaning, with a depiction of space inspired by abstraction. His art can be classified as symbolic figuration, in which he has created his own iconography, with symbols and elements to whom he attributes a unique and personal meaning. On many occasions, the title of his works suggests some interpretation, although Tardez always tries to leave the work open to the viewer’s subjective understanding.
