The figure of Darío Villalba is vital in understanding the evolution of Spanish art in the 1960s. From its very beginnings his work broke clear from existing currents at that time, creating a rupture that has endured to the present by combining two techniques with no distinction between them: painting and photography. In the words of the artist himself, “In my work painting is photography and photography is painting.”
Villalba began his artistic career in 1957 at the age of eighteen. His unusual use of photography distanced him from the Pop Art and Conceptual Art trend of using image. The experimental process evidenced in his art over such a long period of time has led to him now being considered one of the precursors of the use of photography as a pictorial support, both in Spain and around the world.
