This time the shopping night is inspired by Pop Art, an art movement that emerged in the early 50s in the UK and that is to make art with images from popular culture, comics, film and television as opposed to elitism of Fine Arts.
Therefore,the event poster of a screen print by Mick Jagger developed by Andy Warhol, one of the greatest representatives of this movement, image which is assigned for the occasion by the Reial Cercle Artistic de Barcelona.
The sponsor of the event is Pedro Marin, a pop icon of the 80s that became known in America as the first Hispanic avant-garde artist. Pedro is one of the leading exponents of the so-called golden age of Spanish pop.He can be considered as the first Hispanic singer who used sintenitzadors and drum – pioneer in electronics – in his music, being the precursor of movements that arise later.During those years, achieved great popularity with the songs “Air” and “Que No” especially, selling more than three million albums.
