Vintage color, works on paper

collage and installation

My visual research into the color of vintage comics, mostly from the 1940s and 1950s.
Using original comics and children’s books as medium, this series is both the practice of oil painting , collage and installation.

Color in comics | 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.

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.

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.
