If there was ever an example of the global spread and phenomenon that is Pop Surrealism and Lowbrow, we can look no further than the works of Luciano Sanchez. Born in the late 1970s in Granada, Spain, Sanchez ironically was influenced by a movement happening on the West Coast of the United States in the 1960s and ’70s. Spain, of course, has its rich and textured art history, but Sanchez looked as far West as he could to find inspiration. The likes of R. Crumb, Spain Rodriguez, and Juxtapoz founder Robert Williams galvanized his creative spirit, budding into what he calls “Urban Surrealism.”
