IV National Open Air Rapid Painting Competition

The Estepona City Council informs that next Saturday, May 4, the IV National Outdoor Quick Painting Contest “Estepona, Garden of the Costa del Sol” will be held for people over 16 years of age.

The councilor assigned to the Historical Heritage area, Daniel García, has indicated that this contest will once again reward the best pictorial works inspired by the old town of the city. The theme will be related to any custom, landscape, corner or motif located in the municipality of Estepona that can be identified.

As in previous editions, 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 within a period of approximately four hours. Participants will provide all the material they consider necessary for the execution of the works.

The municipal official 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. Only works that are mounted on a frame or rigid support, with its easel and the corresponding socket (or way to hang) will be admitted. The frames or pictorial supports on which work will be done will be sealed by the competition organization on the same day, from 08:45 a.m., at the Casa de Las Tejerinas, located in the 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 found in the contest rules, which can be consulted at www.estepona.es

Once the contest has started, artists will be able to present their works at any time at the Casa de Las Tejerinas, with 2:00 p.m. being the deadline for submission.

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. and then the awards will be presented. 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 awarded to the first ten chosen participants. The two award-winning creations will become part of the artistic collection of the Estepona City Council.

On the other hand, the City Council will select several participating works to be exhibited in an exhibition that will take place at the Casa de Las Tejerinas from May 13 to 24, 2024.

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.
