Descripción del Profesional del arte

Junto a su pareja, la empresaria del sector creativo Ana Gervás, David Cantolla (Madrid, 1967), co-creador y director de las series de animación Pocoyo, ha puesto en marcha desde el 2014 la Colección SOLO, que, en 2018, ha empezado a exhibirla en un nuevo espacio en Madrid, en la plaza de la Puerta de Alcalá, que cuenta con un espacio de exposición, Espacio SOLO, de 1300 m2, y que, además de la colección, tendrá un programa permanente de exposiciones temporales. La colección reune más de 450 piezas de artistas de más de 24 países diferentes, con especial preferencia por el arte pop, según se lee en su web, donde también se señala que el 62% de los artistas han expuesto en un museo, el 41% tienen obra en museos y un 23% han tenido alguna retrospectiva en un museo. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Colección SOLO is a dynamic and passionate quest to champion contemporary art. It is a vibrant, international collection, driven by a genuine commitment to creativity and the desire to bring inspirational artworks to the widest possible audience. A uniquely personal project, Colección SOLO is the brainchild of creative entrepreneurs Ana Gervás and David Cantolla. It reflects their lifelong passion for the arts, their energy and their will to search out and share the most exciting creations of our here and now. The collection is based in Madrid and will be housed in a 1300m2 exhibition space due to open in 2018. Designed by the internationally renowned architect, Juan Herreros, Espacio SOLO is conceived as a work of art in itself, a fitting addition to the city’s “golden mile of art” and within walking distance from the Prado and Reina Sofia Museums. Aside from the permanent collection, this space will host an ongoing programme of temporary exhibitions and arts-related events. With over 450 pieces by creative talents from more than 24 different countries, Colección SOLO reflects the artistic diversity of today’s interconnected world. Pop surrealism and street-influenced styles sit alongside new figurative painting, sculptures and video creations in a collection that embraces contemporary popular culture and celebrates innovation. Established figures such as Peter Saul, Keiichi Tanaami or Gottfried Helnwein are joined by emerging names from across the world. Traditional skills meet cutting-edge technology, local perspectives enlighten global concerns, and shared human experiences become dazzling visual journeys. Through their creations, each artist takes us on a unique and mesmerising adventure. And by bringing those creations together, Colección SOLO seeks to enrich the creative landscape of our times. Colección SOLO is driven by creativity. It is not only a showcase of contemporary art but an incubator of artistic expression, genuinely committed to supporting today’s emerging artists on their creative journey into the future. Through its exhibition spaces, loans programme and website, Colección SOLO maximises the visibility of its artists, while a programme of commissioned works encourages up-and-coming talents to take on new creative challenges. Residencies are also provided at two locations: SOLO House Madrid, in the heart of the Spanish capital, and SOLO House Cantabria, on the picturesque northern coast.
