Revolutionary Road 2.0
Luis Quiles is the art of bothering. His illustrations always seem ready to make war with double standards, daring and provocative. Free strokes, critics, in an era in which the drawings have taken their cartoonists to the grave. A brave pencil, well chopped.
His work, like a virus, has infected social networks and has even overflowed virtuality to gain adherents, insults, praise, aggressions, censorship but above all global attention. His honest and tremendous images have come out of the digital world to show solidarity with reality and, like a salmon, fight against the current of a world that seems willing to go into the abyss.
The woman (muse), eroticism and sex have the privilege of being the medium but not the message of the work of Luis Quiles, who besides being a predator of attention, has the gift of eternal youth; of ideas that do not die and overcome times. Modern and rebellious.
An artist, in addition to being creative in any and all forms of expression and facets he uses, is complemented by character. If either of you is absent, you lose your intention, your mission. And that is precisely why not all artists are artists, but the imitation of an illusion with a pretty beret on their heads.
But Luis Quiles' work is not an illusion, although all its protagonists are drawings.
