Pedro Mainman- Barcelona, Spain

Pedro Mainman is a figurative artist from Barcelona, Spain that uses the human figure as a means to criticize contemporary ideas about racial, sexual and social identity, emphasizing both the physical reality of the human body and its psychological value.

 He is a researcher of the human nature. His inspiration is human emotions, his palette the stories that these suggest. 

Each of the characters portrayed in this "Galerie Pathétique" serie of mixed media on canvas paintings has something of the painters most intimate and vulnerable part which he opens up and shares with the spectator in an exercise of courage, stripping his interior through the psychology of the portrayed as if all were one with the rest of the mankind. What results to be a big universal since as a human beings share dreams, wishes, joys, fears, pain, sadness or melancholy…  together with the rest of the human gender. “It´s amazing how the deep and core of people’s lives, the essential, is very often connected beyond gender, borders or even time“.

His distortions of the human figure, androgynous and intriguing, represents the hero inside each human being, the one who remains standing with dignity after the battle, as finding beauty and strength in it´s own drama.
