Product form


The street art work created by the artist Quinoa+ (Quinoa Ribes) is a bold and contemporary interpretation of the famous painting "The Count-Duke of Olivares" by Diego Velázquez. This work measures 70 cm wide and 100 cm high, combining classic and modern elements for a unique and striking result.

Starting with a high-quality print, Quinoa Ribes applied her graffiti skills to transform this iconic image. The imposing figure of the Count-Duke of Olivares, recognizable by his noble attitude and his majestic costume, is preserved as a central element of the work. However, Ribes added layers of bright colors and dynamic graphic patterns around and on the portrait, creating a stark contrast between Velázquez's baroque style and the urban aesthetic of graffiti.

Bursts of red, blue and yellow spray paint pop against the dark background, adding a vibrant, contemporary energy to the composition. Black and white lines, drawn with precision, create geometric shapes and abstract patterns that surround and sometimes cross the central figure, adding a dimension of depth and movement.

The work is also punctuated with various textual elements typical of street art, such as sentence fragments and stylized signatures, which provide a narrative and personal dimension. These textual additions, written in cursive and capital letters, provide an interesting contrast with the calm and serious face of the Count-Duke.

By integrating these modern elements and layering them with the classic work, Quinoa Ribes succeeds in creating a unique piece that resonates with both Velázquez's historical legacy and contemporary urban culture. The work, with its dimensions of 70 cm by 100 cm, stands out with its presence and dynamism, attracting the eye and provoking reflection on the dialogue between tradition and modernity.
