The colours of the Canaries. An inspiring treasure: the artist of El Hierro
El Hierro, the most beautiful island of the Canaries, is also the most discreet. The breathtaking range of colours and light produced by the island’s volcanic landscapes provide a never-ending source of inspiration for Ruben ARMICHE, one of the island’s best-known artists.
“It’s always the light that decides. The light changes. It always adds something when you paint outdoors. There is a sort of communication with nature, especially here. (…) These tortured trees, brought down by the El Hierro wind, bring us to the end of this voyage through the Outermost Regions of the European Union. Eight regions in the most beautiful corners of our planet with a natural and human heritage that deserves special care.”
