SONGS FOR THE DAMNED
With a background in animation and illustration, it is not surprising that Spanish artist, Gabi de la Merced’s imagery is built on a strong foundation of narrative and storytelling. This fact, along with the incredibly powerful impact that American popular culture has had on Gabi since an early age. Among his countless influences, elements of the past collide with modern culture icons: early skateboard graphics or the legends associated to an obscure musician. Self-taught, in his meticulously detailed and obsessively rendered graphite drawings and acrylic paintings he finds the perfect allies to organize all those images, developing his interest in the exploration of light and colour.
