GREAT BENIDORM

BY OSCAR TUSQUETS BLANCA

LONDON ART BIENNALE

 

‘This exhibition is in homage to the apparently chaotic, but tremendously energetic, activity that this city generates.’ 

Oscar Tusquets Blanca

Oscar Tusquets Blanca’s celebration of Benidorm is an original and enticing take on a city often visited but rarely understood. His series of paintings explore the architecture, history and character of Europe’s leading tourist destination with a vibrant ferocity. Putting aside Benidorm’s much maligned reputation, Tusquets Blanca has uncovered the irresistible energy of the place and found the humanity hidden behind the concrete skyline.

‘Gran Benidorm’ is not only a homage to a thriving vacation metropolis but a testament to the vision and empathy of a modern day master.

Paintings from the ‘Gran Benidorm’ series will be featured as part of the London Art Biennale.

My fascination with Benidorm scandalises most intellectuals and people of ‘good taste’, but it is shared by renowned sociologists, town planners and architects, as well as hundreds of thousands of tourists.
