Cadaqués


This beautiful town of the Costa Brava is one of the most inspiring and magical places in the world for me and, thus, I try to return here once in a while to reload my creative energy. My attraction for this place might have to do with its unusual geography full of sculpture-like stones carved by the different winds, the shape-shifting clouds that suggest a great number of images, the lovely white houses that surround the bay, the labyrinthine streets, the crystalline waters or the rich underwater life... But I guess what I love about this coastal town is precisely something that cannot be fully grasped or described with words, what I love is its genius loci: the spirit of place that can be felt only when one surrenders to the particular energy of Cadaqués and, eventually, allows one to blend with the environment. In my case, I use drawing to accelerate this process of drinking in this amazing beauty.
