Mentiras piadosas: Matías Sánchez | Delimbo Sevilla
After more than 6 years without exhibiting in Seville, and after having exhibited his works in the United States, Hong Kong, Germany, Portugal or Italy, Matías Sánchez returns to his adopted city to show a compilation of his latest creations united under the suggestive title of "Mentiras piadosas" (White lies).
Tübingen, Germany. 1972. Live and work in Seville. Spain.
Self taught artist.
Throughout his career he has built an abstract painting that includes a very personal type of figuration with expressionist influences. His work can be understood as a speaker of the society in which we live, through the constant flow of images, tv, tabloids or the prevailing mediocrity in institutions. His work vindicates painting over everything else.
It was in the edition of ARCO 2002 where the work of Matías obtained an enormous success of public and critic. In ARCO in 2003, his 6-meter oil painting was the cover of the newspaper El País announcing that edition of the fair.
His work has been exhibited in contemporary art centers such as CAC Málaga, where he has exhibited an individual exhibition, or the CAAM - Atlantic Center of Modern Art (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria).
In the past years he has participated in many important international fairs such as MACO 2013 - Mexico Contemporary Art, Art Stage Singapore 2013, Art Monaco 2013, India Art Fair 2013, Contemporary Istanbul 2012, Art Toronto 2012, Art Moscovo 2012 and Beirut Art Fair 2012.
His work are in both private and public collections such as the Art Museum of the University of Southern California. Los Angeles, CAC Málaga, CAAC Sevilla, Benetton Art Spain Collection, Caramba Collection, Luc Caurichon, Paris, or the S. Goodman Collection of New York among others.
