Duende Art

Background

Duende Art is an artist collective that work in various visual art media. The work by these 10 artist share certain characteristics that are part of the Duende sensibility as described by Federico Garcia-Lorca in his essay "Play and Theory of the Duende". In the introduction to Duende Theory Dr. Jose Rodeiro wrote: "In the essay, Lorca identifies three distinct spiritual entities that inspire all human creativity: 1) muses, 2) angels, and 3) the duende. As the essay progresses, Lorca defines and compares each of these supernatural art-inducing dynamos." Furthermore, in terms of creative inspiration, Dr. Jose Rodeiro states that "the Duende's only concern is the here-&-now ('the present')".
