Further Biographical Context for Lluis Mestres

Lluis Mestres was born in 1952 and was largely inspired creatively by the 1970s. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and development in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the dominant strains of the previous decade. Conceptual art developed as a influential movement, a partial evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the works of art into the expansive outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and looking to engage with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal considerations, creating mysterious and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain importance for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years before, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly respected figures worldwide. New York maintained an important position in the international art scene, ensuring that global artists continued to gravitate to the galleries, bars and downtown scene in the city. International movements began to gain importance included feminism, which translated strongly into the visual culture, and photorealism which had begun in the 1960s and enjoyed momentous commercial and critical achievements. For the first time painters and sculptors from Latin America were embraced by the leading critical and institutional levers in New York.
