MIXED MEDIA PAINTINGS
All over the world Paco Raphael takes pictures of urban scenes. These contemporary cityscapes are mixed with urban industrial life in the 1950ies, 60ies and 70ies, by adding images of themes like old cinema, music, typography, erotica and architecture taken from posters. The digitally mixed print is finished by hand with paint, pen and stencils. The result is a versatile, vibrant, mixed media painting that is very recognizable as a Paco Raphael artwork.
