Art Walk Cómpeta starts at Easter – El “Paseo del Arte Cómpeta” empeza en Semana Santa.

Easter time is coming and with it the 11th edition of the Art Walk Cómpeta! A great event to which I am very much looking forward, as I am a member of the preparation team and an exhibiting artist. You will find me at the location 5. The Art Walk Cómpeta is the first to open a row of art events in Andalusia that I am taking part in or which I like very much. The Art Walk is more than an Art Walk, its truly a Festival of Art, organized since 6 years by the artist Lieuwke Loth who also runs the Galeria Luz de la Vida in Cómpeta. This wonderful event is organized completely by volunteers without any funding! Get more information about the Art Walk here:

The Art Walk is coming soon! Get some information here. Don’t miss this great event at 20/21 and 23/24 of April.

Enjoy the excursion to the charming village of Cómpeta with its vibrant artistic atmosphere! Stroll through the numerous art exhibitions, participate in an art workshop and enjoy our exquisite live music program as well! Its worth staying some days in this beautiful mountain village and explore the art and the village and the nature with its great offers!

Sneak pre-view to my exhibition this year! ¡Un adelanto de mi exposición este año!

I am bringing a bigger collection of paintings – I think 80% of them are new. You will see bigger formats as well as very small ones. But be sure, all will be full of vibrant colours.

Again I will share the location with a photographer, this time with Mariska Luth from the Netherlands. See more of her work here: Made by Luth. Opposite of studio 5 you will find at venue 6 the German abstract painter Michael Schumann, who offers a great collection of square paintings.

On our way to our place, you can make a little excursion to a wonderful sculptor garden, in the middle of the white village (Location 8) ! Definitely worth a visit! Dragons and more are waiting for you!!!  And 38 artists, art workshops, music, a Theater group roaming through the streets, a beautiful village with lots of wonderful bars and restaurants, great views and a real artistic and vibrant atmosphere. I am sure, you will enjoy!

You will also meet members of the Costa del Arte Collective, four of them are exhibiting! Great art to be seen!

Memories of Exhibiting at the 10th Art Walk Cómpeta in 2018!/ ¡Recuerdos de exponiendo en el 10. Art Walk Cómpeta en 2018!

This was my first experience with exhibiting at an Art Walk in Spain! I had some experience with Open Studios as long as I had my studio in Bonn. I love this kind of exhibition because it gives so much value to the visitors and artists! Great way to connect with art, artists, art lovers and a village or area of a town! It was a great experience for visitors and artists!

Esta fue mi primera experiencia con la exposición en Art Walk en España! Tenía cierta experiencia con Open Studios, siempre que tuviera mi estudio en Bonn. Me encanta este tipo de exposición porque le da mucho valor a los visitantes y artistas. ¡Una excelente manera de conectar con el arte, los artistas, los amantes del arte y un pueblo o área de una ciudad! Fue una gran experiencia para visitantes y artistas.

Getting ready, transportation of a lot of paintings, preparing the room that I shared with the photographer Nikki de Gruchy, meeting many fellow artists, for  four days receiving a lot of visitors from different countries and many good friends, walking through the narrow streets and on the steep stairs of Cómpeta:   what a lot of impressions to take in!  Now looking back I can say, it was a great event and I am very happy I was a part of it! And very lucky that I had a lot of support! Many thanks to Lieuwke Loth and the team to making this Art Walk Cómpeta possible! 

Preparándose, transporte de una gran cantidad de pintura, preparando la habitación que compartí con la fotógrafa Nikki de Gruchy, conociendo a muchos artistas, para cuatro dias recibiendo muchos visitantes de diferentes países y buenos amigos, caminando por las calles estrechas y en las empinadas escaleras de Cómpeta: ¡cuántas impresiones! Ahora mirando hacia atrás puedo decir que es un gran evento y estoy mucha suerte que podría asistir, mucha suerte, ¡eso tuvo mucho apoyo!¡Muchas gracias a Lieuwke Loth y al equipo por hacer este Art Walk Cómpeta posible!

Intensive Vorbereitung, der Transport von vielen und auch großen Bildern, das Herrichten des Raumes, den ich mit der Fotografin Nikki de Gruchy teilte, in dem sich Stühle und Tische stapelten, Bilder aufhängen, eine große Anzahl Kunstkollegen kennen zu lernen, Besucher aus unterschiedlichen Ländern empfangen und gute Freunde, durch die engen Gassen und über die steilen Treppen von Cómpeta zu wandern – wirklich viele Eindrücke, die ich gesammelt habe. Im Rückblick kann ich sagen: Es war eine großartige Veranstaltung und ich bin glücklich, dass ich dabei sein konnte! Und sehr dankbar, dass ich so gute Unterstützung hatte! Ganz großen Dank an Lieuwke Loth und ihr Team, dass sie diesen fantastischen Art Walk Cómpeta möglich gemacht hat!

Review: Great day out in Cómpeta with Art & Food & Music!

Sunday, the 16th of September we celebrated the Finissage of the first exhibition of Costa del Arte Collective in the Galeria Luz de la Vida in Cómpeta. We had put together a program for the whole day, so people coming up from the coast could enjoy a day with Art, Food and Music. We  had a fantastic press cover, both in the German and the English press and our visitors enjoyed the “lazy Sunday lunch” in the Finca de las Sierras and our Finissage with great art of the Costa del Arte Collective, talked to the artists and enjoyed the impressing music of Duo Masque!  Just dip in and listen for a while to Russel and Chrissy !

Huge Press Attention
