‘K6 16’

New print. Reviewing the idea of Mechanical Pop Art.  In 2017 I experienced the show, Andy Warhol. Mechanical Art. at the CaixaForum in Barcelona. It is interesting how art in art books or on tv does not have the same effect as confronting the actual real art pieces. It was a sense of a revelatory event. Three years after while revisiting a print of mine that depicts a K6 model telephone box I saw myself convulsively carrying out research on Andy Warhol’s work and starting to put this piece together. I settled upon the coloured portraits he made of Marilyn Monroe. Once my new print was completed as an impulsive art act. I meditated over the void of the intellectual justification for this act. Why we possibly do things and what tell us about ourselves and how we interact with our collective memory. The K6 telephone box by Gilbert Scott is an icon of design. Marilyn Monroe is equally an icon in the collective culture. Warhol cleverly created an association of her image to a new way of presenting it very personal and different. My doubts are whether I have created a new piece that is relevant to our times, Andy Warhol is still a strong presence in our culture, in the arts and the advertising. Or if this piece is a revival of three cultures. Classical John Soane’s, Early 20th Gilbert Scott’s and Andy Warhol’s 1970’s. Layer upon layer of historic-artistic references.

About Alejandro Martinez:
He was born in Granada, Spain, in 1973. He studied architecture at the Universidad de Sevilla and graduated in 1998. He has always had a passion for drawing and in parallel with his architectural training, he nurtured his particular interest in pen and ink drawings with graphic design.
From 2000 he worked as an architect in the UK. In 2006, longing for the proximity of the sea, he moved to Brighton. This change of scenery provided him with a rich gallery of experiences from which to draw inspiration.
