‘SOIDADES DAS FALAS’ IN THE PRESS
In June, the art gallery Luis Pita, in Santiago de Compostela (Spain) opened ‘Soidades das falas’, an individual exhibition by Arturo Álvarez, showing his new art collections. Many media covered this event, among them Infurma: “Artwork is a brand new expression zone designed for creative artist Arturo Álvarez who, twenty years into his career, has entered a much deeper exploration phase of the human beings, their relationships with others and their surroundings, and where light acts as a backdrop.” Link
Experimenta magazine highlighted this joining of light and art, and the Galician newspaper El Correo Gallego published an article signed by the art critic Fátima Otero: “Arturo transforms the organic world and the living forces of nature into places of light. His designs and pieces of art are universal; they talk about the local objects, the spirit of the place they come from, the surroundings of Vedra. From his home-studio, he reaches the whole world with his lights, now made into physical bodies which shine their own light.” Link
