The First of this Year’s Impresiones Gigantes Events

The show was an exhibit of work by local and international artists in Granada’s Palacio de Almirantes in the Albaicín quarter on May 6. The artists showed mainly small work–when compared to the giant, road-roller prints we’ll be seeing on Sunday, June 1, in Granada’s Paseo del Salón. The delightful thing about all of the Impresiones Gigantes events is their  authenticity as IG, now in its third year, is a true grass-roots initiative. At this show lovers of art and culture had the opportunity to mingle with the artists in a relaxed and unhurried atmosphere.

IMPRESIONES GIGANTES is a collective of artists who live and work in Granada. Each June for the past three years they have staged an open-air event in the Paseo del Salón Park. It consists of printing huge, one-by-two-meter linocuts with a road roller. The quality of resulting prints is remarkable, and the process is fascinating and fun to watch. It draws ever-larger crowds of art lovers and passers-by each year.
