Six artists to paint murals in Tenerife town throughout 2019
Six national and local artists are to star in the 1st Urban Art Festival 6 of 12 of Los Realejos.
They will paint murals in different districts of the municipality throughout the twelve months of 2019.
Details were unveiled by the departments of cultural promotion and citizen parti-cipation, led by Adolfo Gon-zález and Sandra Pérez.
The artistic initiative began with the help of the Valencian artist Julieta Xlf, who is working on an area of about 150 square metres on one of the exterior faces of the La Barca neighbourhood asso-ciation of Toscal Longuera. The work, according to the author, “is inspired by childhood and the flight of the blue finch as outstanding elements, taking into account the proximity of the playground of the area combined with floral elements.”
This urban festival is promoted with the Asso-ciation for the Promotion of the Visual and Performing Arts of Los Realejos (Afaver) and is coordinated by the Tenerife artist Víctor Pa-checo KOB, author of the series of mural paintings of the educational centres of the town.
“In Los Realejos we follow the path started two years ago in which we have striven to fill the public spaces of the municipality with colour and art, also giving young creators the opportunity to show their artistic abilities, instituting a festival that programmes interventions every two months with the aim of exposing different techniques and styles with very diverse artists in their concepts and methodologies,” said Adolfo González.
Víctor Pacheco announc-ed that “several locations are already being defined for the next creations planned in March, May, July, September and November.”
