Suso Fandiño (born 1971 in Santiago de Compostela, Spain) and his fellow students became part of an emerging movement in Galicia in the early 2000s. Known as Generation Atlántica, their approach was close to the neo-expressionism of the early eighties. One of Fandiño's early works, a huge stainless sign with the text tontoelquelolea (dumb who reads this), illustrates his interest in art as language, and his reassessment of the art establishment’s relevance.
Visual language filled with irony and sarcasm are integral part of his practice, such in his typewriter works alternative facts and la lutte continue (the struggle continues). Fandiño continuously appropriates imagery and forms from works by renown artists, in ways that undermine conventional notions of originality, artistic mastery and authorship. In his work My selfportrait as a fountain - a video referencing Bruce Nauman’s work of the same title - Fandiño uses urinating instead of Nauman’s original gesture.
