Where art originates, introduction by Pepe Malasombra to the exhibition “¡A San Fermín venimos!” by Emiliano Gironella Parra

“The most significant actions in life are a party… and when you are part of the party, you make a toast.” With these words, Pepe Malasombra begins his introduction to the exhibition “We come to San Fermín!” by Emiliano Gironella Parra. To put it more precisely, in this exhibition, which is not just another bullfighting exhibition, the artist pours out the meaning of significant aspects of the unique bullfighting festival in Pamplona, Spain, which he and his group of friends attended. This exhibition is the sole content of the collaborators of a celebration in distant lands. They are the sum of the experiences of eight days of celebration, enjoyed with a glass of red wine in hand.

The exhibition We come to San Fermín! by Emiliano Gironella Parra was presented in 2000, at El Aire Centro de Arte Gallery, Mexico City. It consists of fourteen works in various techniques: encaustic on wood carvings, oil on canvas and collage with a variety of materials.
