What a busy art time I had! The Art Walk in Cómpeta in April, “Mini Cuadros” in Almuňécar in May, the International Festival of Art in Marbella in June and now showing till July ” We can do”, an exhibition of 13 lady artists, in Cala de Mijas in the Casa de Cultura.
The Inauguration will be Friday, 28th of June at 8 pm! I will participate with two or three paintings. Two of my fellow artists from Costa del Arte Collective will show there works too: Anouk Slegers and Lieuwke Loth! This exhibition was curated by Rafael Fernandez Pacheco, who is a great art lover and probably features every exhibition to be seen in Málaga. This is the third exhibition I am invited to participate!!! Would love to see you there!
The International Festival de Arte in Marbella, a review /
El Festival Internacional de Arte de Marbella, una reseña.
A real fascinating event took place last week in Marbella. The Festiarte, a great art show that featured more than 100 artists in 60 stalls by the organised by the town of Marbella and Javier Roman (Delegación Cultural del Ayuntamiento de Marbella (@delegacionculturamarbella) y por Marco Eventos Culturales). We stayed 4 days and evenings – opening times were till 11 pm! – on the beautiful place with the Dali statues and the view to the sea. It was a great community of artists and many many visitors, who had a lot of choice to see and buy interesting artworks of different kinds: pottery, statues, photography, painting and more.

The four days were a great adventure and success. And a real challenge! We got the tents with a nice lightening system but no hanging system at all. But with some tools, a lot of phantasy how to manage and a lot of patience everybody worked it out. A huger challenger was the wind, some days it had to be called storm. Coming back from a break we found a lot of the paintings on the floor, luckily there was no damage at our art! I took the opportunity to show some larger works, which got some attention.

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:

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!

I have worked on many small canvases and now I was really looking for a challenge : 140 x 160 cm! A format that hardly has room in my little studio! But a pleasure of freedom. And since long I could do it all from the very beginning! I hope I can exhibit this at ART WALK COMPETA in which I will be part of! Hopefully the room will be big enough! Hope to see you there (31.03./01.04.04 and 03./04.04.18)
He trabajado en muchos quadros pequeños y ahora realmente estaba buscando un desafío: ¡140 x 160 cm! ¡Un formato que apenas tiene espacio en mi pequeño estudio! Pero un placer de libertad. ¡Y desde hace mucho tiempo puedo hacerlo todo desde el principio! ¡Espero poder exhibir esto en ART WALK COMPETA en el cual seré parte! ¡Espero que la habitación sea lo suficientemente grande! Espero verte allí (31.03./01.04.04 y 03./04.04.18)
