Javier Calleja is a Spanish artist born in 1971. He is known for his figurative universe of wide-eyed self portraits packed with wry humor. With their oversized, watery eyes and subtle red blush, Calleja's characters can be described as little heroes who have overcome hardships with smiles on their faces. Javier Calleja resists the 'over-theorisation' of art, preferring to create art that can be easily accessed by the viewer. This approach, paired with his distinctive aesthetic, has seen him amass a dedicated following of fans and collectors around the world.
