Between shock and carnal, the games of substance are meted out in the works of Maíllo (Madrid, 1985) like a laboratory of beings without form that live without order in a wide pictorial universe, with word as another element that travels within the frame and creates order so as to guide one to the sentiment contained. He is one of the great and promising Spanish artists of the moment, not just by us but by specialized critics.
A graduate in Fine Arts from the Complutense University in Madrid, he has exhibited individually in spaces such as the Galería Ponce+Robles in Madrid, the Galería Javier Silva de Valladolid, and participated in the Contemporary Art Fair ARCOMadrid in 2013 and 2014, and in collective displays in the Museo Colecciones ICO in Madrid. In 2013 he was the invited artist at the festival of Tendencias Urbanas in Madrid, MULAFEST, in a promotion by the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. He forms part of the platform InTransit and the collective of creators of Matadero.
He has also participated in the Festival Cultura Inquieta, in the Colegio de España in Paris and in the Sala de Arte Joven de la Comunidad de Madrid, being selected in the XXIII edition of Circuitos. His work is to be found in different private and public collections in Spain, France, Colombia, Switzerland, and Germany.
