So here there are a few more pictures of the event last Thursday.

On the hat, Francisco Centofanti, the invited artist to play with the Cube.

It was great to see how everybody got involved drawing over the lines of a painting-drawing where the theme is actually the action of drawing. From kids to adults, groups to individuals, it seemed that everybody felt confortable to perform on their own way.

The action of drawing or painting takes many decissions that end up composing a final result: the art work.
I found very interesting inviting the visitor to add something on a big scale painting-drawing. Every sentence or drawing was a decission to keep developing one whole image.
At the end, a transformed image made by the artist, and followed by the people.

It was my pleasure to invite all of you to my creative process.

All the best,

Hi there!

How are you?

Busy days...very very busy days these ones for me...The Vyner Studio is absorving all my time (in a very good way) and that´s the reason why I have not been posting as much stuff as I used to.

Now, in another level, a further step, I am having real contact with a serie of artists that are either creating at The Vyner Studio using it as their studio space or actually exhibiting their work.

Being in contact with all these artists and having seen like I have more than 2000 people visiting the actual space over the last 3 months makes me very proud : ).

At the moment exhibitions are being schedulled and I will soon present a programme untill October.

On last Thursday I exhibited my work and the invited artist was Francisco Centofanti who showed his art work but also did a painting performance encouraging people to take part in it as well.

On this pictures, some paintings I presented for this exhibition, where the blackboard and chalk where the main media.

I´d like to invite to the new real thing: The Vyner Studio, where hopefully I will showcase many artists that I have selected for this blog.

All the best!
