It is sometimes fascinating how chance can play a part in people’s lives. For instance it was chance that local artist David España recently watched a programme on Spanish TV on the work of various nations ambassadors in Spain; it was chance that he’d just recently converted a small local that he owned in Casares into a gallery; it was then chance that a group of people who were visiting Casares a few days later happened to drop into the gallery. How is this fascinating? Well the party happened to be the US Ambassador to Spain, Alan D. Solomont, his wife Susan and a number of staff, who David recognised having seen the TV programme just a few days before.
The Ambassador was so impressed with David’s work, that he purchased a piece on the spot. After a chat and a quick photo opportunity the party went on their way. But this wasn’t the end, later that day David España received a call from the Ambassador to say that he would like to purchase another piece.
David España has been painting for over 30 years, and specialises in his own particular style of painting on glass.
You can view David’s work at his gallery Studio 54, C/ Villa, (just before the Town Hall), Casares.
