At Marbella presents in its third edition two important special projects by Dionisio González and Lita Cabellut
Dionisio González (Gijón, 1965) will exhibit for the first time during Art Marbella the series Thinking Central Park, his most recent work. González is a renowned multidiscipline artist and photographer whose work can be found in the permanent collections of Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía and the Museum of Contemporary Photography of Chicago, among others.
Lita Cabellut (Sariñena, 1961), considered the contemporary Spanish artist most valued in the world, is another of Art Marbella’s strong artistic proposals, from the private collection of Gustavo Montoya. Cabellut’s work is defined by the strength of her photorealistic portraits and her work on large scale canvasses using her own contemporary variation of the fresco technique.
The fair dedicates a space for artists of proximity were has invited photographer María Carrión to exhibit her work, characterized by her search and play with ligh, in a space dedicated to Sotogrande.
For the first time in 2017, Starlite will be a Sponsor of Art Marbella and will have a space of his own to exhibit the work of Emilio Machado, one of the spanish artists more trascendental internationally. Machado higlights because of his figurative works' quality that sorprises in every detail, with the same impact of his abstract work.
