Vernissage thursday 5th october 06, 7.p.m.
the exhibition runs until 2nd november 06.
Mel Ramos ’ provocative paintings and prints put him on the map as an important Pop artist. Over 30 years along with the heroes and heroines of popular comic series, nude, female bodys of male phantasies depicted with bold outline and bright colours dominate his artistic ouvre. They are not beautiful by nature in the classical sense, they are more farcically and constructed in their stainlessness and glamour.
