Landscape workshop with Paco Broca. Flying CARPET
CARPET (Craft Art and People Together) has a clear commitment to bringing the people closer to the artists, promoting encounters that promote and encourage better knowledge of the creative process through active participation. Artist Paco Broca will be in charge of guiding an approximation to landscaping in a free, open way through conscious contemplation, selecting elements of the landscape and enjoying an open air experience.
Registration essential via:
Flying CARPET is running a number of workshops during the month of October. With the intention of enabling as many people as possible to make the most of this opportunity, each applicant is asked to choose just one workshop to attend. In the case of places remaining unfilled on further workshops they will however be permitted to attend more than one.
PACO BROCA (Seville, 1961)
He started his training at the Applied Arts School of Seville, specialising in design and carving in stone, and continued with painting at the Seville University of Fine Arts, although he really defines himself as self-taught. Of restless spirit and tireless work ethic, his pieces are fresh, spontaneous and strongly expressive pictures in oils and watercolours of intense reds and poetic blues.
Landscapes are the central axis of his work, with pieces inspired by the Real Alcázar of Seville, the Guadalquivir river, Morocco or the Etna volcanoes. These paintings were brought together for his latest exhibition elpaisaje.com. Another of his exhibitions, El Vidrio or the Misterio de la Trinidad (Glass or the Mystery of the Trinity) replicated the inside of the glass factory and the pieces drew an interesting parallelism between the factory and the artist’s vision of creation in art.
Winner of the first prize at the International Biennial of Artists of the Mediterranean in Rijeka (Croatia).
His work is present in private collections and in museums, such as the Les Vendimieres Museum in Montpellier, France; the Museum of Modern Art of Rijeka, Croatia; and the Focus collection at the Musée des Arts et Traditions Populaires in Paris, among others.
Teacher of natural landscape painting.
