Bands like The Beatles, KISS and Queen not only left deep marks in the world of music, but in the art world as well. Seeing the endless source of inspiration, interpretation and creation, the young Spanish artist Borja Bonafuente Gonzalo combines the history of portraiture with music.

Since his life is music, he is reflecting it in his work through musical references such as famous poses, make-up or the name of the artwork itself. His large format creations enable the spectator to see the wealth of details that make his personal style of hyperrealism such a success.

The Blokker Gallery in Madrid has discovered this emerging talent and will be sharing it with the rest of us in March in an exhibition called Mi querida España.
