I did not intend to move to Valencia, Spain but I am very glad that I did. The Valencian Community, or Comunitat Valenciana, is one of the most blessed autonomous regions of the Kingdom of Spain. Valencia is the capital city and it is truly a Mediterranean beauty!
My family origins are from La Mancha, Castilla-La Mancha, to be precise. This community is very close to the Comunitat Valenciana but nowhere near as fascinating, therefore I chose to move to Valencia instead. Really, there was no contest as I need to be close to the sea and that meant my beloved Cuenca, was out of the question.
In any event, here in Valencia I have established my new galleries and art studio, Omnia Caelum. I am looking forward to participating in Valencia’s biennale, Russafart, the next one in June 2020. Russafart means Russafa…the neighbourhood…and Art. It is an event where chosen artists and galleries hold open houses…wine and cheese…and thousands of tourists, collectors and art lovers can visit any and all. I was lucky in choosing to live in Russafa for you must live and work here in order to participate.
Russafa is a rather centrally located neighbourhood which is known now as the trendy part of town. There are many art galleries, shops and lots and lots of bars, usually on the corners where you can have breakfast, lunch and lots of delicious beer!
So, I thank you so much for reading this, and I hope you like and follow. I will be posting about my art work and about this beautiful and vibrant city. It would also be interesting to generate discussions on art, culture, travel etc. whatever you like!
