Madrid ART Week! Our visit to the Art Fairs + Fortuny in Prado Museum

Young admirer in Urvanity , Swinton Art gallery
This week is one of my favorite weeks of the year and as every year I can't help but write a post about Art Week in Madrid.

Starting with ArcoMadrid, the great event of art in IFEMA where this year's controversy has again been served by the Catalan theme. I was fortunate to have a guided tour on the same opening day thanks to Sushita and Solan de Cabras. I loved the work of the gallery Pilar Serra that represents the photographer Jose Maria Ballester with a work on Goya and the landscapes of his paintings.

 Travesia Cuatro had amazing art pieces and I went to visit as a nephew of mine also works there. Also the good thing about this year is that each gallery offered artwork for less than €5,000 to encourage consumption and there were many interesting options. The only bad thing about ArcoMadrid is that it's so big, you get a little lost.

I was also able to attend the inauguration on Tuesday of Just Mad in a central space in Nuñez de Balboa. I fell in love with the clouds of Isabel Alonso Vega from the Gallery White Noise in Rome and the Portuguese galleries that have visited the Fair.

Finally today I attended Urvanity at COAM, a new exhibition of new contemporary art, Okuda's work in the gallery Ink and Movement and I also discovered the Swinton Gallery in Madrid.

Truck Art Project was also there with video and pictures of trucks.

Unfortunately I stayed with the desire to go to ArtMadrid where I've always seen cool things but I had tickets for Fortuny at the Prado Museum, wonderful exhibition, really recommend it and there's no time for everything you want.

CASA DECOR opening!

Casa Decor, the great annual decoration event in Spain has opened its doors yesterday in Francisco de Rojas number 2 until March, 25th.

This year they celebrate 53 years of this original concept where they choose a singular building in Madrid and during a month, the best Spanish decorators show their proposals for all rooms of the house.

 I have loved it as usual , my favourite room was decorated by Nuria Alia and reminded me fondly to LA or Miami.

I was also impressed by several of the paintings on display and learned that this year they have made a special emphasis on art because of ArcoMadrid who will be presented next 21 of February.

I recommend that you take a look at Pictoclub paintings in various rooms of the house, such as the Lady of the Ermine in the Hall of Ele Room 62 or in Marta Zarzalejos Chimney room.

Pictoclub is an on-line art gallery that has very different works characterized by the fact that the authors do not sign the works and therefore the cost is reduced

After visiting the house, you can also enjoy the gastronomic offer of the chef de la Cabra named Javier Aranda, who has opened a temporary restaurant inside.
