Grace & Ashes is delighted to present a new collaboration with Adolfo Arenas.

"Saints" by Adolfo Arenas is a highly detailed and complex piece that engages with themes of history, spirituality, and human experience. The artwork features a dramatic juxtaposition of a classical painting within a painting and a contemporary scene of repose, creating a dialogue between the past and present.

The upper part of the composition is dominated by an interpretation of a classical religious painting, depicting figures that exude a sense of sanctity and suffering, a reference that adds depth and context to the scene below. This portrayal may invite contemplation of the eternal themes of human existence, such as suffering, redemption, and transcendence.

Below the painting, in the foreground, are modern-day figures in various states of rest and undress, scattered in a room that whispers of decadence and intimacy. The contrast between the sacred and the profane is palpable, as the ornate details of the room and the relaxed posture of the figures speak to a private, secular world, far removed from the lofty ideals of sainthood.

Every element in the room is rendered with meticulous attention to detail, from the intricate patterns on the textiles to the worn surfaces of the furniture, evoking a sense of timelessness and narrative richness. The artwork tells a story of contrasts and comparisons, inviting the viewer to ponder the connection between the divine and the earthly.

Collectors and admirers of art that merges classical and contemporary elements would find this piece particularly engaging. It is a thought-provoking addition to any collection, prompting reflection on the multifaceted nature of human life and the pursuit of meaning across ages.


Each piece of this exclusive collection is stunningly hand-signed and numbered by hand in pencil by Adolfo Arenas Alonso.

Printed on heavy weave paper and produced from a graphite drawing that took months to produce.

Large size: 75×55 cm

Technique: Gicleé iris print, embellishment on Fine Art paper 250 grams.

An amazingly shocking grotesque and erotic work of brilliant contemporary art by a yet-to-be-exploited artist who has turned down approaches from agents and galleries worldwide who want to sign this young Spanish artist... they know a genius when they see one.

I would go as far to say he is the next Lucian Freud with a bit of Banksy humour mixed in.

Each piece is signed and numbered by Adolfo, with small elemenets hand-colored.
