Carlos Mensa (1936 - 1982)
Carlos Mensa was a self-taught painter who worked alone in the margins of fashion. Expressionism, realism, surrealism, quotations to the history of painting and fierce criticism are combined in a very personal work of great technical perfection. Using sarcasm and later irony, he decomposed topics, seeking the absurd, corrosive and oppressive. He looked for extreme and risky situations of impact that act as metaphors or allegories embodied in images.
