A collection of beautiful black paintings that shine
A visit not to be missed when in Málaga. Galeria Javier Marin presents black mysteries by José Luis Valverde.
Just a short stroll of 5 minutes from my very appreciated CAC Málaga (Centro de Arte Contemporáneo ) where we admired the exhibition “Gold rush” by Jules de Balincourt we had the chance to see a collection of beautiful black paintings that shine by José Luise Valverde, of whom we had just discovered two paintings which are exhibited in the CAC.
About two years ago I got to know the artist quartier Las Lagunillas in Málaga. For my husband’s birthday I had booked a guided tour through this fascinating area which included the visit of several artist’s studios. It’s always so nice to meet artists in their studio and see them at work. The Málaga artist José Luis Valverde shared his studio with Victoria Maldonado, a very gifted artist who’s mainly white and fragile objects contrast beautifully the black and heavy works by José Luis.
