Bellarine Báez mural dedicated to agriculture

Nine Leda and international artists continue working this weekend to transform the walls of homes and buildings in Pinellis into art, on the occasion of the ninth edition of the Gargar Festival of Murals and Rural Arts. The special guest of the competition is the painter Bellarine Baez, who, with the help of art students and other muralists, creates an artwork in the city’s old church square. The subject is ancient agriculture in the Clotte del Damone, “a land without opportunities for irrigation, which flourished with the arrival of the Urgell Canal,” as the painter said yesterday. It represents farmers collecting grain and highlights a woman driving a tractor. You can also see the emblematic buildings of the region, such as Castell del Remei or even the village of Penelles itself. Once the work is done, it will take about six metres. Baez admitted that he “never thought” he could complete a mural so quickly. This point, located in the city center, was one of the most visited points by visitors yesterday. Irene Lopez, one of the artists invited to the festival, also dedicated her mural located in the main square to the rural world and new generations. In terms of organizing the festival, they expressed their satisfaction with the high level presented by this year’s team of invited artists, who “collaborated a lot with each other,” as confirmed by María del Mar López Pinto. Following this year’s edition, the streets of Pinellis will feature a total of one hundred and fifty murals that visitors can wander through, taking advantage of the workshops, activities and concerts scheduled.
