Spequo is a creative studio focused on the expressive possibilities of mirrors. Our name is inspired by the Italian words for mirror and water. We are currently based in Madrid, Spain. Specchio + Aqua = SPEQUO
The canvas mirrors are an hybrid between mirror and painting. The reflecting artwork questions the blurring boundaries between art and design, mixing a functional everyday object with the passion of expressionists painters like Jackson Pollock and the popular icons of Andy Warhol.
The project reflects on the role of art throughout history with Humanity’s ancient desire to imitate and reproduce reality, creating an artwork that reflects like a mirror at the same time.
However, the canvas mirrors as physical objects are always unfinished, since they need the interaction with the spectator, who completes the final artwork. The fourth wall is broken. Painting and spectator, reality and fiction: they all coexist on the same level.
Just like avant-garde artist Marcel Duchamp said “it is the spectator who makes the picture”.
Each artwork is personally created by Spequo’s team. The designs are later transferred into an acrylic glass/wood canvas using a self-developed mixed media technique.
