Not only will artists display their work, the park will become a meeting place for artists and fans of the world of art. Discussions and exchanges of ideas will also take place.
Not only is this great for local artists, they figure it also helps to make Fuengirola more interesting for tourists
For a rather nice change, there is absolutely no charge for the use of a section of the park to display your wares. The premiere of this cultural project was December 16.
Strolling around the park, you could watch the artists at work "in situ" on their latest creations, as well as browsing existing paintings.
It is a place for both professional and amateur artists, and even children can get into the fun. People exchange ideas, comment on each others work, and offer their art for sale to the public on a regular, weekly basis.
Romero told the media
, that "the idea came about because sometimes artists and members of the art academies request to use public streets to display their work, to make their work accessible to the public in general."
"For this reason, we thought it would be a nice idea to create a meeting point in Fuengirola where anyone who wanted to paint, make portraits, sell his work or simply have fun as an amateur painter, could do so without any problems."
"We decided that the Parque de España would be the ideal place, because it is centrally located, has plenty of parking nearby, is well shaded for the summer months, is very spacious and pleasant," he added.
There are some rules on basic standards of behavior, for instance artists must not leave rubbish or cause any damage to the park.
"Our intention is to become a center where people can go and exchange ideas, pictures, styles, curiosities and everything that is related to the pictorial world of Spain."
Some paint for a hobby, as part of their retirement, and some paint for a living.
Diego Ferrera Priego is retired, and paints at home, creating colorful local scenes.
While a lot of people are against bullfighting, including the writer, toreadors and bullfighting scenes are popular as art.
There are many nostalgic scenes in art form to be seen in the park including the old Town Hall (Ayuntamiento Viego), now bastardized into a future "Hotel con Encanto
", retaining only a part of the facade - the painting below shows the original building:
