    "Arcade Paintings" is an exhibition that emerges from the collaboration between the Seville-based contemporary art gallery Gallery Zunino, directed by Anabel Zunino, and Malaga Gallery Eldevenir Art Gallery, directed by María Rosa Jurado. In this exhibition you can see a dozen of works of painting by the artist Jonathan Notario (León, 1981).

    Project "Arcade Painting":
    Arcade paintings is a project based on a series of paintings of illustrative character, inspired by videogame universes designed by notary, as an excuse to create new personal imaginaries that break the logic of conventional landscape and incorporate elements playful.
    "Arcade paintings reflects at the conceptual level, about videogames as evasion of reality in the new generations" Milennial. Fun that makes you forget the banal responsibilities of everyday life. Overcoming obstacles within a colorful fictional world, while leave aside the genuine responsibilities of the real world and adult.
    at a formal level the world of video games is an interesting inspiration because that allows me to much experimenting with compositions, colors and fictional universes, reflect on the boundaries between painting and sculpture, illustration, design, digital imaging and processing manual.
    the project is a below research on "Augmented reality", my previous project, on which reflected on the relationship between analogue and digital creating large installations of computer-inspired, but hand-made with cardboard in a sort of parody of the digital world and virtual reality."
