We are so thrilled! Today we’ve had a very inspiring talk with an artist from Ourense that we all admire, Rafael Cachaldora. You may well remember that we sent 5 postcards featuring some of his colourful and unique representations of various emblematic places in Ourense.
On the occasion of our school’s Third Book Festival, Rafael was invited to give a talk on his artistic production, which is not only limited to digital representations of Ourense but includes fascinating abstract paintings that evoke the prehistoric art of our earliest ancestors.
Cachaldora has told us many interesting things about his sources of inspiration, the evolution of his artistic career, his techniques and workshop, his exhibitions worldwide and, very importantly, about the need to be true to one's passion.
He was very kind to bring us a book of his 2014 exhibition in the Museo Provincial de Ourense, which includes a very special signed dedication:
Our ESO 4 and Baccalaureate 1 students created a piece inspired in Cachaldora’s style and have given it to the artist after the talk.
He very kindly signed postcards to all the students and a even dedicated one to our project!
Thanks a million, Rafael! We love your art!!
