The artist David Mayo, after winning the 23 Telax Prize Antoni Pinyol Gallery presents its new exhibition of photography: Los deseos abisales.
Born in Seville in 1979, David Mayo is an artist and writer. Formed painter specializing in the Faculty of Fine Arts St. Elizabeth of Hungary, began his artistic career in this discipline becoming known in Seville and obtaining important awards such as the Philatelic Forum Prix and the the University of Seville one.
Since then, his work has deepened in various disciplines, especially photography, present at all in his first solo show Sobreexposición in 2006. The interest of Mayo in photography is undoubtedly conceptual, but never neglect the visual aspects and has evolved from a photograph staged until, in recent years, closer to the paths of the post-photography, protagonist of his latest samples Only in dreams can fly in Jaalproject (Madrid), Lo emímero y lo perdurable in Valentin de Madariaga Foundation (Sevilla) or Los Agricultores in Sant Andreu Contemporani (Barcelona).
Los deseos abisales gathers, along with parts of previous projects, work of recent production, which strengthens and affects the psychological and psychoanalytical aspects of their work, presenting strange and impossible forms, hyper-sexualized or alien anatomies that reflect a taste for the sinister, in Freudian terms.
