A neighborhood full of vivid art in Málaga

A neighborhood full of vivid art in Málaga

We had the pleasure to take part in an art walk in Málaga on a very sunny day in January. The Dutch artists Birgit Gerritsen and Els Wiering  from “Meet the artists in Málaga” showed us a neighborhood we had not seen before. Just near Picassos birthplace to the north we walked into an area full of neglection and full of art. Countless street art paintings were  waiting for us, telling the story of creativity, anger and desperation. We were very touched! Have a look and don’t miss this area when you come to Málaga.

Admiring street art and artists studios in Málaga

The walk trough all this bold and engaging art was fantastic, but not the only highlight of this day! We had the chance to meet 5 artists, one in the street and 4 in their studios, each of them  creating very different art work. Like always, it is so interesting to meet an artist in her/his studio and get in touch in a different way with art!
In one of the streets we had the pleasure to observe a well known Málaga street art artist at work, his Artist name is “Doger”, but you might find him more easily in social media under Jonathan Morillas.
We met the sculptor Juan Vega Ortega, who works in a very traditional way with wood and creates most moving statues which you may see in one of the religious processions. We met Victoria Maldonado who shares her studio with José Luise Valverde – a “black and white” couple. Victoria is making most delicate organic-like figures from different materials, mostly white, while José is working with lots of black paint and manages to make us feel like being in the darkness. With time your eyes get used to the darkness and you discover more and more. Cuban artist Rodolfo Llopiz is working in an impressing printing studio with most different printing techniques and showed us a bit of his art.

It was a great walk – don’t miss it when you get the opportunity!
