Sevillian painter Armando Rabadán to complete a residency in the UK
Armando Rabadán is a plastic artist and Fine Arts graduate of the universities of Seville and Mimar Sinan of Istanbul, Turkey, a country he spent four years in while developing his artistic career. His current creations combine geometry with concepts that bring origami to mind, with resulst that appear to be three-dimensional thanks to the use of depth, texture and shading on canvas. Colour and simplicity are primordial in his landscapes.
Within the framework of the Fundación Tres Culturas’ (Three Cultures Foundation’s) CARPET project, Rabadán will be spending from the 25th of May to the 2nd of June at Krowji (headquarters of Creative Kernow and the largest creative centre in Cornwall) with other artists to fusion painting with other disciplines such as crafts and design. He will also lead a workshop on meditative watercolours for elderly people, aimed to stimulate the cognitive processes. Plus he will be taking part in the Open Studio that Krowji holds twice a year, which collectors and art fans from all over the country attend.
The CARPET Project is coordinated by the Fundación Tres Culturas (Three Cultures Foundation) along with partners Creative Kernow in the UK, CEARTE in Portugal and APDN in Morocco. This project has financial support from the European Europa Creativa programme.
