This year marks contemporary Spanish artist, Pedro Paricio’s, fifth year with Halcyon Gallery. Paricio was the youngest artist to sign with Halcyon Gallery at only 28 years of age and he has since been named the “freshest thing in the emerging contemporary art world in thirty years,” by Juan Manual Bonet, director of the Cervantes institute in Paris and former director of the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid.
In the past five years Paricio has reached many milestones with his art career; presenting his first major show, Master Painters, at Halcyon Gallery in 2011 and The Theatre of Painting, his solo museum exhibition at the Institute of Culture and Arts of Seville, Spain in 2012, Paricio has since gone on to have a further two highly-acclaimed exhibitions within Halcyon Gallery including Diary of an Artist and Other Stories in 2012 and Shaman in 2014. Included in Francesca Gavin’s book 100 New Artists (2011), representing an innovative generation that is forming the aesthetics of the coming decade, Paricio’s work has also been acquired by the Norton Museum of Fine Arts in Florida and TEA Museum in Tenerife as well as held in a number of private collections around the world.
In celebration of Paricio’s five-year anniversary, Halcyon Gallery is proud to present a collection of iconic works which have been specially handpicked for the Halcyon Summer Exhibition 2016 taking place throughout June, July and August at the gallery’s flagship at 144 New Bond Street. Works selected from each series will also be exhibited at both the gallery’s 29 New Bond Street and Harrods locations.
