PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Eduardo Arroyo

Eduardo Arroyo is a multi-talent; not just a painter, but also an author and stage designer. Arroyo views himself as a European citizen, and draws from art history for his work. However, literature, the worlds of comics, boxing and his own ideas – the man in a hat, the chimney-sweep, shoes, figures in silhouette, and featureless faces – provide him with an extensive repertoire for his flat, stylish pictures, which in addition to a certain absurd humour also contain a serious profundity and an enigmatic dimension.
