As is already becoming usual in the Gallery, we present like every year the group show with the finalists from the International Call for Young Artists.

The participation in this twelfth edition has been quite high, with a total of 583 portfolios from artists from all over the world, the majority from Latin America and Europe. For the final selection the criteria was based on internationality, quality, professionalism and above all originality. Due to the quality and the high standard of the artists, it has been difficult for us to reduce the list of artists selected, and finally we expanded our selection to a total of 24.

It is worth mentioning, that some of the participants already have a noticeable artistic career, and can be found in the large international art events as fairs and biennial's. We can also say that the participation from Spain and Mexico has been massive, because of which you will find a total of 7 spanish and 4 mexicans among the final selection.

The works presented cover very diverse disciplines, which compose a corpus of ideas
and contemporary preoccupation:

Nicolas Bacal influenced by the poetics of the object, uses industrial tape measures to recreate a reflection of the sun; the provocative Kimberly Clark presents "Swansong", a life-size woman-doll with open arms supported by beer crates; Jorge De La Garza and his collage of small old illustrations fragments; Javier Fresneda and his hybrid objects; Carlos García Peláez with his subtle and elaborate circular paintings; Patricio Gil Flood with images and book pages intervened with the text, open and hidden the meaning of the worlds; Ismael Lagares and his vibrant and coloristic paintings; Oliviere Larivičre with his canvases of disruptive scenes; Omero Leyva in the style of Pettibon and the magical surrealism with his black and white drawings; Sifis Lykakis with papers saturated with graphite and his play with light in the shape of fire; Alejandro Martín Torrado with paintings of bird-views of organic metropolises, David Miranda presents a "homage" to the flag that continuous his reflections on social identity; the paintings of the German Daniel Mohr with his studies on landscapes; Guillermo Mora recreates traps with pictorial materials transformed into sculptures; Ramiro Oller and his geometric multicolored acrylics that incite us to their infinite combination in space; Germán Portal and his watercolors that materialize the intimacy of each corner of his study; Alejandra Prieto with her coal sculptures representing fashion complements; Bernardino Sánchez Bayo brings us closer to hyper-realistic painting with mystical lines; Rodrigo Sastre contextualizes his passion for the classic cult comics on art history book covers; Cristina Silván with her kinesthetic pieces with a perfect finish; the apocalyptic drawings and videos of the Norwegian Martin Skauen; Iris Van Dongen with her stunning and well known great-format drawings, representing women with the dignity of heroines of a decadent modernity; Laure Vigna close to the poetics of the inframince with her pieces of wood and the videoinstallations by Mai Yamashita & Naoto Kobayashi with great poetic charge.
