Color of vintage comics

painting and assemblage series

Visual research into the color of vintage comics, mostly from the fifties and sixties.
Using original comics and children’s books from the 1950s and 1960s as a medium and inspiration, this series is based on the vintage color. It is both the practice of oil painting on linen and assemblage on paper.

The color in comics | the vintage color

My research on the world of comics is particularly in the color of comics and cartoons from the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s.

The color of these comics is from the universe of the industry of comics and children’s books. Color practice limited by industrial and large-scale prints. Neither sophisticated or refined printing, which can be said of the world of art.

Typical color of entertainment products intended for the masses, but at the same time a rich, sophisticated and delicate color. Unique and well elaborated in its composition.

The works are inspired by comics, children’s books and tv broadcasts such as Woody Woodpecker, Bugs Bunny, Tom & Jerry, Donald Duck from the late ’40s to early ’60s.

A color range that is no longer utilized, but still very rich in its singularity, accuracy and sensations that I’m trying to investigate with my assemblages and paintings.
