Very good morning, from the Hotel Álamo we want to invite you to an exhibition that is taking place in the Museum of the University of Alicante, the MUA, until November 12. The entrance is free.
The Sala Naia del MUA will permanently house the work that the artist Daniel Escolano ceded to the University of Alicante, with pieces that will be renewed every year.
The exhibition proposes a chronological tour of the artist’s particular universe, through drawings and paintings that evolve from surrealism and the magical realism of its beginnings, to the debugging of lines and the abstraction of the last decade.
Daniel Escolano drinks from multiple influences that he recreates in a singular way. Between his inheritances we find Dalí – to that he knew personally -, its teacher Pedro Picó and the surrealism. Other influences from different universes such as Greco-Latin mythology, Christian religion, Zen Buddhist philosophy or the world of comics and manga, as well as Freudian psychoanalysis and empirical observations of nature are added to it.
