The exhibition 'Los Claveles. A closer look at young Sevillian painters' hosts 50 pieces of art by 26 painters from Seville at the Chirivella Soriano Foundation in Valencia, from 25th April to 7th September 2008.

'This is a group of artists which while it has not been acknowledged as a group or generation and does not have a will of sharing a similar base or line of work, it does keep a common characteristic. We could describe it as a type of imagery. As well as words and phrases, elements that only make sense within the language they belong to, there is also an imagery where the elements that conform it could have only been born and acquire their meaning within and for a certain environment, even if they always maintain a desire of universal projection. The artists share similar teachings and a similar feeling of rebelion against those teachings; they share reference points and scenarios many times visited. As Michel Hubert Lépicouché well says, Sevillian artists paint without a bad conscience or regrets, infusing each piece of art with a philosopic lesson 'from the perspective of the vital and peculiar experience of this city'. '
