Eduardo Arroyo (born February 26, 1937) is a Spanish painter and graphic artist. He is also active as an author and set designer.
Arroyo, who was born in Madrid, studied art and journalism in his home city, but left Spain in 1958 because of his basic contempt for the Franco regime. He even lost his Spanish citizenship in 1974 (which he got back two years later, a year after the death of Franco). In Paris, he befriended members of the young art scene, especially Gilles Aillaud, with whom he later collaborated in creating stage sets, but also the old master, Joan Mirů. In 1964, he made his breakthrough with his first important exhibition. Over 20 years of great critical success and high esteem on the art market followed. Today, the ideologically and creatively uncompromising artist is as active as he ever was, even if it seems to have become somewhat quieter around his creations.
Stylistically, Arroyo's mostly ironic, colorful works are at the crossroads between the trends of nouvelle figuration or figuration narrative and pop art. A characteristic of his representations is the general absence of spatial depth and the flattening of perspective.
