Miguel García Vivancos' exhibition can be seen in Mazarrón until January 18 (03/12/2018)

The Exhibition Hall of the Popular University in the Avenue of the Constitution of Mazarrón hosts since last Friday one of the most relevant samples of recent years.

The exhibition collects private collections donated for the occasion of works by the painter of Mazarron origin, Miguel García Vivancos.

The exhibition, which was inaugurated by the mayor of Mazarrón, Alicia Jiménez, can be seen until January 18.

Alicia Jiménez highlighted "the work of the Popular University of Mazarrón and its director José María López, enriching with this new exhibition the cultural offer of the municipality."

The exhibition, curated by Darío Vigueras, pays tribute to an artist born in Mazarrón in 1895. Miguel García Vivancos traveled in his adolescence to Barcelona.

Committed to the rights of workers, he joined the CNT and positions of responsibility in the Republican side.

After the Civil War he had to emigrate to France.

It was in the mid-twentieth century when his artistic expression was born, later becoming an influential naive style artist.

He met Picasso and learned from other great masters.

His work traveled to galleries in Paris, Basel, Rome, Rabat or Zagreb.

His paintings hung on the walls of rooms of great people like François Mitterrand, while he went unnoticed by the general public.

He returned to Spain to live his last days in Cordoba.
