Equipo Crónica

Equipo Crónica

Equipo Cronica is the name of a major spanish pop art collective, active from the 1960s to the 1980s.

It was founded in 1964 by Rafael Solbes (1940-1981), Manolo Valdés (born in 1942) and Juan Antonio Toledo (born in 1940).

Their interbreeding is unique : they are a little realists, a little critics, quite pop, practicing pictural quotings, anachronisms and bittersweet pastiches. The whole is quite jubilating and easy-going, but no happy, francoism's shadow being present all along their work.
