About the artist

Javier Calleja

Javier Calleja, born in 1971, is a Spanish artist known for his distinctive wide-eyed, cartoon-like figures. Calleja works in various mediums and scales: drawings, paintings, sculptures, and installations on both the macro and micro levels. The dark humor and exaggerated proportions of his figures draw influence from cartoon characters of the 1980s and recall the work of Yoshimoto Nara and Roby Dwi Antono.


Since his debut at auction in just 2019, Calleja’s momentum on the secondary market has skyrocketed. In Sotheby’s Hong Kong Contemporary sales in the fall of 2021, three of the top ten lots were Calleja’s works, and each of the three made a hammer ratio between six and eight times the low estimate. In 2021, the artist had solo exhibitions at Almine Rech in Shanghai and Galería Rafael Pérez Hernando in Madrid. Calleja will be showing at Frieze, Los Angeles with Almine Rech in February of 2022.
