Manolo Valdés moved away from linear irony to interpret the image as a symbol and a vehicle for contact between the work of Art and the spectator. He has continued to seek inspiration in the creations of the grand masters of the History of Art such as Velázquez, Rembrandt or Goya. His work is forceful and decorated with historical art symbols. The timelessness of the image as the axis of the visual experience is the determining factor in his creations. Throughout his long career, Valdés has never stopped investigating and reinventing Art, with an insatiable appetite for conceptual and plastic experimentation.
Declaring himself a consumer of art and its history, Manolo Valdés ranges deftly across mediums, producing witty, art-historically informed drawings, paintings, prints, and sculptures that explore history and contemporary culture, politics and everyday life.

La luna vino a la fragua con su polisón de nardos. El niño la mira mira. El niño la está mirando. En el aire conmovido mueve la luna sus brazos y enseña, lúbrica y pura, sus senos de duro estaño. Huye luna, luna, luna. Si vinieran los gitanos, harían con tu corazón collares y anillos blancos. Por el cielo va la luna con un niño de la mano. Dentro de la fragua lloran, dando gritos, los gitanos. El aire la vela vela. Running throughout his work is a theme of the fate of innocence against things considered taboo, against violent reality, and against mortality. The poem is tightly structured: it has an isosyllabic metre (eight syllables in each line), and an assonant rhyme in the evenly numbered lines. Both devices are typical of traditional Spanish romance poetry. Repetitions seem to be incantatory–mira, luna, niño, vela–evoking the dreaminess of a trance or a lullaby.
