The Estepona City Council informs that next Saturday, May 6, the III International Fast Painting Competition in the Open Air ‘Estepona, Jardín de la Costa del Sol’ will be held for people over 16 years of age.
The councilor attached to the Historical Heritage area, Daniel García, has indicated that this contest will reward the best pictorial works inspired by the old part of the city. The theme will be related to any landscape, corner or motif of this Estepona enclave that can be identified.
As it happened in the first two editions, the participants will be able to make their paintings from the artistic style they consider. The uniqueness of the test will be that they must complete their work in approximately four hours. The participants will provide all the material they consider necessary for the elaboration of the works.
The municipal manager has explained that, although the technique used will be free, the pictorial support must be rigid and have a size of 50 x 70 centimeters. The frames or pictorial supports on which they are going to work will be sealed by the organization of the contest the same day, from 08:45 am, at Casa de Las Tejerinas, located in Plaza de Las Flores.
Each participant may seal a maximum of two supports, but may only submit one work to the contest. At the time of sealing, the participant must submit a completed annex that is found in the bases of the contest, which can be consulted at www.estepona.es.
Once the contest has begun, the artists may present their works at any time at the Casa de Las Tejerinas, with 2:00 p.m. being the deadline for delivery.
The jury will be made up of people of recognized prestige in the artistic field. The jury’s decision will be announced at 3:00 p.m., followed by the awards ceremony. The winning work will receive 600 euros and there will be a prize of 300 euros for the second finalist work. In addition, a diploma will be delivered to the first ten chosen participants. The two award-winning creations will become part of the artistic fund of the Estepona City Council.
On the other hand, the Consistory will select several participating works to be exhibited in an exhibition that will take place at the Casa de Las Tejerinas from May 9 to 20, 2023.
The mayor of Historical Heritage, Daniel García, invites those interested in art to walk the streets of the center that day, where they will have the opportunity to enjoy the entire creative process that a pictorial work entails.
