Service Description

Join us at this RECULTURARTE* CULTURE CAFFE session about the work of famous Mexican artist Rufino Tamayo. If there’s a painter whose intense colors and vivid expressions show the strength of Mexican art, that is Rufino Tamayo (1899-1991). To understand the magic of this extraordinary artist, one must first discover his life, especially his childhood, and his love for the mysticism of Mexican pre-hispanic cultures and particularly his native Oaxaca. Two factors that made his creativity explode in a landslide of color, passion, joy, and life. Tamayo’s paintings revolve around existence and are embedded with the deepest reflections of what life is all about. Come and discover the wonderful world of Rufino Tamayo’s magical mélange of painting and philosophy. The session includes a discussion of 15-20 min. DURATION: 1h30 If you also join our RECULTURARTE Learn & Paint session later on, you will receive a CHF 20.- discount on that workshop, where you can skip the first hour presentation, given that you will cover the material here. PRICE/PAYMENT: includes a coffee or tea. Payment can currently be done online or in person with cash (please bring exact amount), Credit Card or TWINT. LANGUAGE: This session is led and instructed in English (German, Spanish, and French, or very basic Italian are also possible). AUDIENCE: This session is designed for adults, although older teens are also welcome (16 years old and above). *RECULTURARTE are offerings from RECREARTE where there is a strong focus on culture, art and history.
