Currently with Galerie Zink in Hamburg (Barlach Halle K), Javier Calleja has a show on view entitled Fake is the future. Including canvases, works on paper and mural paintings from the Spanish artist, the solo features cartoonish portraiture certainly inspired from his time working under the tutelage of Yoshitomo Nara. Open to the public for a few days only, the exhibition sees Calleja put in some time adding spheres of colors to the walls that match up with the backgrounds of his paintings, visually merging them with the space.
