Description

The notion of the essence of evil being manifested in the female form is as old as history itself. From Eve, who stands accused of ruining what could have been an eternal idyllic existence or Pandora, custodian of a box that contained all the evils of humanity that she just couldn’t help herself but to open in order to spread those ills across the world. That could be considered mean. Or just plain bad. As Lux Interior of The Cramps once warned us “All Women Are Bad”.

There are no more mean gods or humans portrayed in popular culture and beyond than the female of the species. The bad girl is engraved in the consciousness as myth and continues to be represented by combining fear and terror with fascination and attraction.

La Fiambrera celebrates its FIFTH anniversary and the arrival of 2020 with a traditional annual group show that celebrates the bad girl. Thirty international artists bring together the strongest , most feared, most hated yet cool characters that inhabit this universe. Some well known meanies such as Maleficent, Bette Davis, Cruella DeVille and The Queen of Hearts rub evil shoulders with new figures created specifically for this special occasion by the twisted minds of their creators.

Roll up and feast your eyes on these dangerous but captivating dames. You know you want to.

ÁLVARO P-FF (Madrid, Spain, 1973)

After studying communications, he began his career working for Disney and at several different design and advertising agencies until he and his brother, photographer Juan Pérez-Fajardo, decided to open their own design studio, The Fly Factory.

His illustrations and designs, always related to music, have led to collaborations with artists like Sabina, Bunbury, Pablo Alborán, Calamaro, L.A., M-Clan and Los Coronas in Spain, and Lana del Rey, The Long Ryders, Redd Kross, Jayhawks, Green Day, Lucinda Williams and many others on the international scene.

With a unique blend of 1980s street culture, 1990s American poster art and nods to the language of modernism and Art Deco, Álvaro Pérez-Fajardo has forged a powerful and unmistakeably distinctive style with a ubiquitous presence at virtually every major music event in Spain today.

In 2014 he began to produce his own artwork, with great commercial success, continuing to draw on his trademark methods and influences but revelling in the total freedom of doing and creating whatever he wants.
