ABOUT THE ARTIST
Edgar Plans is a Spanish postwar and contemporary artist that lives in Gijón, Spain whose works have been featured across the world in notable galleries such as the Almine Rech in Brussels, Shanghai, and Paris, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the WOAW Gallery in Hong Kong, and the Padre Gallery in New York. His work has also gone under the hammer at various notable auction houses, with his painting Colors being sold for approximately 700,000USD in 2022 at Christie’s Shanghai.
Plans conveys the innocence and hope of children through his raw and playful imagery, creating doodle-like visuals to paint a narrative and tackle grown up issues from a whimsical perspective. By using his expressive and eye-catching cartoon characters known as Animal Heroes set in contrast to urban backdrops using mixed media, Plans draws attention to social issues like racism and gender equality.
