Recap: Voces que Pintan Benefit at Casa de América in Spain
The cross-over within genres of the standard creative person is always rather impressive: although music and painting (or photography or writing or digital design or any other creative field) may initially seem rather unrelated, the innate creative talent oftentimes sees no boundaries within different mediums.
“Voces Que Pintan” is an exhibition of paintings created by some of Spain’s most famous singers, most of whom have no real background in fine arts. These works are currently on display at Casa de América in the Sala Frida Kahlo, and will be auctioned for the benefit of Project Light to Learn, a project of the Organization of Ibero-American States for Education, Science and Culture (OEI). Proceeds will help to provide light and internet to over 60,000 schools in Latin America. Although since the artwork is created by famous Spanish singers and are predominantly merited on the singers’ fame, the cause is a worthy one and the artwork isn’t as bad as one might initially expect.
Auctions are currently open, simply select the work you are interested in on Facebook, and send an email to email@example.com with your name, offer, ID number and the name of the piece you are interested in.
