Versatile painter shows his love for the Canaries
“Art is a diffusion of concepts that the public has to understand”.
These are the words of Canary artist, Erik Cichosz who is presenting his latest thought-provoking exhibition in Icod de los Vinos.
The cultural and sports centre “Casa del Mar” is hosting the event up until December 28th and are all welcome. It’s a perfect setting on the beach of San Marcos where the visitor can admire murals showing scenes such as churches and the processes of wine-making, many in striking colours.
Erik has always painted outside the boundaries of tradition and has been described as “a creative, versatile, unique, original, expressive and different painter”.
Although of German parents, he was born in Barcelona in the times of the Civil War, beginning life in the Pyrenees and from there moving to Paris, then in several cities in Spain and then the Canary Islands. He is enamored by its flora, landscape, sea and sky and history, to the point of taking up residency in Icod de los Vinos, specifically in San Marcos, many years ago.
