  • Artist Biography

    Javier Calleja

    Javier Calleja (b. 1971) is a contemporary Spanish artist living and working in
    Malaga, Spain. Calleja is most known for his figurative style of cartoonish, doe-eyed
    characters with exaggerated features. His style is influenced by the toys and comics
    from his 70s and 80s upbringing. Calleja’s characters are often accompanied by text
    that contrasts the innocent and adolescent looking facial expressions of the
    characters represented in the compositions. Calleja works in painting, sculpture,
    and works on paper.

    Calleja holds a BFA from Granada University in Spain. His works have been exhibited worldwide and he is currently represented by Almine Rech.
