Garcibuey is a small village of a hundred inhabitants, located near Salamanca in Spain. Some of the locals, supported by the region and the city hall, organised its first street art project ‘Graffitibuey‘ to give a new life to the village by creating an art trail. About 15 artists gathered to paint murals focused on rural themes (agriculture, local fauna and flore, traditions etc.) for this first edition.
I painted the portrait of a vigneron to celebrate the strong wine maker tradition of the area. The man (based on a photo by TomazL) is working in the vineyard, holding a grape of ‘rufetes‘ (the local grapes). The background has blue and lavender tones.
