CULTURE MIXED WITH NATURE: TETSUYA ISHIDA AND MATT COLLISHAW

Now that the weather is so good, in this post I'm going to recommend two cultural plans that also combine with nature breaks in the center of Madrid such as the Retiro park and the Botanical Garden. A fantastic 2X1 for free time whether you want to go with family, friends or alone:

Gunter Gallery - Art Presents for Christmas

Ricardo Cavolo
Christmas presents are a concern for all of us. Gunter Gallery is a good option, an on-line art gallery for Young art collectors. They produce their own art pieces via the printmaking technique. All the impressions made in their atelier are numbered in limited edition and you get a certificate from the gallery.

Colección Abelló: Masterpieces of a Spanish Collector

One of the most important Spanish art collections is currently exhibited in the Ayuntamiento de Madrid; it is a privilege to have access to this wonderful exhibition. The Madrid City town hall, through the project ‘Mecenazgo al servicio del arte’, gives Madrid citicens access to some of the most prestigious private art collections – in this case provided by Abelló family: La Colección Abelló.

Lalabeyou - Buy or Create your Own Jewelry!



I made a nice discovery while walking the other day through Belen Street, doing some window shopping. At first, I was amazed to see many drawings displayed with original jewelry. I was not sure whether it was a shop or a gallery. A smiley lady inside informed me it was both, and also a jewel atelier: Contemporary Jewelry Galery Lalabeyou!

Find Nature in the Middle of Madrid - El Olivar de Castillejo

Path towards the house surrounded by olive trees
Path towards the house surrounded by olive trees
Madrid has it! incredible surprises when you least expect it. Wandering randomly throuhg Chamartin district,  I discovered an amazing place: Fundación Olivar de Castillejo. A true olive grove with more than 100 olive trees in a hectare of land, located in the middle, but really in the hub of town. Between streets Alberto Alcocer and Enri Dunant with entrance through Menendez Pidal 11. Amazing! A smaill uninviting door without signs or indications, go through it and get literally teletransported into the deep countryside, one of those Andalusian "ventas" dotted with olive trees, flowerbeds and small paths ....

YellowKorner- Accesible Contemporary Art


The new YELLOWKORNER shop in Madrid
One of the good things about traveling is to discover new concepts never-before-seen in Madrid. In one of my last trips to Paris I discovered a photography shop called YellowKorner and inmediately thought: why don’t we have a shop like this in Madrid?
They read my thoughts. Walking through Salamanca District, I got a nice surprise. Yellow Korner just opened a shop in Madrid! Sigue leyendo, en español más abajo

Casa Decor 2013 - A Yearly Appointment (we cannot miss)


Another year Casa Decor opens its doors in Madrid!! This time more challenging than ever. Designers need to transform a very 60's circular shaped office building, former british embassy, into residential spaces. Conceived as a diplomatic complex, the building is self-contained with its own system of security, electrical and water systems. And a very difficult layout. A real challenge and an extraordinary outcome! worth the visit!

Hotel One Shot 23 - sophisticated and comfy


This has been my last discovery: hotel One Shot 23 at calle Prado 23. I was wandering around calle Prado - a street I highly recommend, full of surprises - and without knowing I stepped into a hiper-cosmopolitan space that happened to be the reception of a hotel: One Shot 23. Brand new! En español abajo sigue leyendo.

Photography exhibition by Imogen Cunningham at Fundación Mapfre

Imogen Cunningham at Mapfre

 In one of these past grey weekends, I took my car and went to Sala Azca belonging to Fundación Mapfre. Fundación Mapfre stands in Madrid cultural scene with two big locations, one closer to the art triangle (Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen) and the other one close to the Bernabeu Stadium, I’ve always found that it’s atypical place for exhibitions but the visit  to Imogen Cunningham Photo Exhibition was worth it.
