Charlie de Navarro transforms visual contamination into art
Barcelona - OCT 18, 2013

Charlie de Navarro takes images found in magazines, fashion editorials and internet and transforms them into incredible thorough drawings. The Spanish artist and illustrator has developed this "fetish", as he calls it, in large part due to the visual contamination present in today's society.

His work method leads him to an obsessive search of images that are part of pop culture and give them different meanings. With a careful and detailed use of graphite, Navarro takes these irrelevant and often empty images and leads them to an artistic context, inviting the viewers to see them with different eyes, to be concerned and involved with the visual culture that surrounds them.
