11 Dec Destination, Madrid
The #onthedraw suitcase has already landed in it’s new destination, Madrid.
Last wednesday December the 10th, all illustrated treasures and experiences drawn in the Canary Islands began to amaze the public of the Spanish capital.
Ricardo Fernandez de la Puente, Tourism Deputy Minister of the Canary Islands, inaugurated the exhibition at the Trapezio Room, located in the Mercado de San Antón (Chueca), with Maria Mendez, manager of Promotur Turismo de Canarias and four of the artists that didn’t want to miss the appointment; Paula Bonet (from Barcelona to Gran Canaria), Jens Magnusson (from Sweden to La Gomera), Steve Simpson (from Ireland to La Palma) and Mads Berg (from Denmark to El Hierro).
Illustrators agreed on the privilege it was for them to be part of such a special project, highlighting the creative freedom that has been given to capture the hidden charms of the seven Canary Islands.
The 14 sketchbooks and all 43 prints that capture the vision of the seven illustrators and their hosts may continue being enjoyed in that space until December 21st (11.00am – 21.00pm).
A unique experience that if you’re in Madrid, you should not miss.
