The Art Wanson Gallery located in the Marbella Club Hotel is currently having an exhibition of the art of Mercedes Lasarte. Mercedes Lasarte was born in Argentina but has lived most of her life in the US. She studied drawing and painting at UCLA. The artists who have influenced her most are Matisse and Gauguin.
Her paintings are full of bright color and her style is contemporary. One can say they are happy paintings that make the viewers feel happy. She uses the cloissonnisme method, in which colors cover wide areas and are clearly separated and to not touch each other.
Mercedes Lasarte has had an exhibition in the past in the Carmen Thyssen Museum in Malaga, and this exhibition was highly successful.
Also in the Art Wanson Gallery, one can find original silk scarves and robes by the artist Bernardo Torrez, also from Argentina. He works with Mercedes Lasarte and gets his themes from the work of Mercedes. He makes one-of-a-kind silk masterpieces that are beautiful and that one can wear.
Monday to Friday: 11 -14h, 16-19:30h.
