Exhibiting Isa Molina

Prices available directly from the venue and the artist, see contact details below.

Whilst waiting for a friend to arrive at a nearby bar I will be holding laughter yoga workshops and art classes in this year, I discovered this library-slash-coffee shop-slash-gallery.

At first glance I assumed it was a book shop, then I noticed it could be a coffee shop only as there were people sitting and drinking coffee, then as my eyes are not tuned into spotting art flyers, I noticed the poster in the window, so this space seems to be a lot of things in one location!

Librería Café La Fugitiva: Calle de Santa Isabel, 7, 28012 Madrid

Walking in to the shop I was met with rows and stacks of shelves covered in books. a real book lovers dream, AND they serve coffee!

Librería Café La Fugitiva: Calle de Santa Isabel, 7, 28012 Madrid

A few tables dotted about the place provided space for guests to sit and read or learn something, a couple of customers seemed to be learning languages, which reminds me I need to practise my Spanish more!

Librería Café La Fugitiva: Calle de Santa Isabel, 7, 28012 Madrid

The artwork is on display high up above the shelves and on the walls, the ones not covered in books! These bright collage pieces are playful and bright, some are portraits with a childlike aspect of the character of those portrayed.

Isa Molina’s pieces seem typical of Spanish art: bright, playful and emotive. This exhibition finishes quite soon, I look forward to seeing what’s next on display in this book lovers heaven!

You can find Librería Café La Fugitiva‘s Facebook page here and on Instagram here and on Trip Advisor here.

I’m still searching for the contact details for the artist Isa Molina, if you find them, please send me a message, or you can contact them directly through the Librería Café La Fugitiva‘s Facebook page here.

You can find Rose-Mari Torpo‘s (born 1977 in Rauma, Finland) website here and Instagram here. On her website whilst discussing a previous exhibition:

Since it is challenging to submit colour to a logical or verbal analysis, it is difficult to discuss or write about it. The colour affects our subconscious mind, memory and collective history in a unique and irreplaceable way. It touches the non-cognitive, deeply sensorial and irrational level of ourselves. 
Colour is a psychological and physical experience of the observer. The viewer with her presence and perception makes the significance of the artwork. 

https://rosemaritorpo.weebly.com/exhibitions

I had no idea this place existed even after visiting the market few times to buy food! Only when I ventured up to the cafes level and went to the far corner, did I spot the flyer for the exhibition on the glass door of the entrance:

One of my favourite games is “does it open?”. It’s a simple game and often I get to see the behind the scenes of many places and objects! I pushed the door and I won! Stepping into the space I was greeted by the lady at the front desk, I explained in my broken Spanish about this project and asked permission if I could take photos. The two artists were there in the space and I deeply regret not asking for a photo with them. After chatting with the co-ordinator of the event I was told it was the launch day and I was invited to the evening drinks! Unfortunately I had other plans however I’m delighted that I was able to discover the space and take the photos before the general public else had a chance to visit.

These pieces seem simple at first glance, and they are. They are a perfect example of contemporary art, an experimentation of colour, material and dimension. Keep in mind that both artists are from Finland and a deeper level of Scandinavian minimalism also plays a part in the style displayed. Researching the artists and their previous works, the layers of understanding and the respect for the formation of these pieces of art grows. I love the recycled aspect of the work, using old things to make new things and giving them a second chance or second life. The bright colours are attractive and the play of different medias mixed together keep the observers attention.

The pieces seem untitled and without prices so please contact the artists directly for more information.

I’m not sure who the artists is, I am assuming it’s Luis Sanz. After a bit of research it seems as if Luis has a photography studio for marketing purposes and photo shoots. Luis might be the studio owner or the photographer, not the artist. I’ll update as I find out more.

I can imagine that the artist has spent time taking the photos of these people and then has played with all sorts of technology to digitally alter the photos into these ‘painted style’ images. They are beautiful in real life and I wish as always that my photos did better justice to them. If you find yourself in Chueca, pop in and have a look at the artwork whilst enjoying one of the most highly rated coffees or cocktails in the area.

I love these continuous line drawings, at this scale they are super very impressive! The bold block colour shapes add another layer of depth which helps the viewer integrate an understanding of the character of the subject, perhaps a display of an aura? The face blacked out with just the eye gives a sense of privacy and anonymity. Very stylish!

It’s clear that Javier’s style is full on pop art through the ages. The iconic super heroes, cartoon legends and even modern heroes like the minions means that his art attracts fans of all ages. Bright colours, busy compositions and large scale formats become an exciting addition to any wall.

Mama Inés Cafe

You can find the cafe on Trip advisor here, Facebook here, Instagram here. Their website is here.

I first discovered this cafe in early 2019. I was visiting a friend and we went on a date here! The cafe are serious about their coffee and were not happy we had walked in with our Starbucks drinks! A moment later their coffee arrived followed by a fantastic breakfast. I don’t remember if they had art when I first visited, perhaps that’s an indication of how the date was going!

This time, I stumbled across the cafe again whilst helping another friend promote her latte infusions…another story for another time. This time I was delighted to see the artwork up on the walls! The exposed brick a perfect compliment to the glass fronted pieces, shiny and rough surfaces allowing the contrast of textures to amplify the colours. Visit and enjoy!
