Hyperrealistic paintings by Borja Bonafuente

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.

About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
