20febAll Day24marXAVIER PUIGMARTÍ | THE GARDEN

Event Details

Mashrabia Gallery is very glad to announce their 7th collaboration with the Spanish artist Xavier Puigmartí presenting his very last body of work under the name “The Garden”.

Almost realised in the past claustrophobic year, during the isolation in his home in the heart of El-Fayyum Oasis, the 36 pieces that form his exhibition drew inspiration from his continuous observation of the surrounding enchanted landscapes.

Moreover, the cultural reminiscences of his personal favorite masterpieces: the old Egyptian paintings and Juan Miro’s famous “La Masia” (The Farm), played a pivotal role in shaping his vision of the ideal garden. In both, he found an intense love of nature and care for details: a flower might be a star, an insect, a god, an ant that can be equal to a mountain.

Last but not least, Puigmartí has recently sojourned in Iran, discovering the Persian gardens where dreams and memories materialise.
