THE nationally and internationally renowned artist, Requena Nozal (born in Zaragoza,1947) is exhibiting his work in an exhibition entitled Hemeroskopeion years 1980-2015, as a tribute to and demonstration of gratitude to the town of Denia.
For years he travelled in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, the US and Russia, but chose to settle in Denia thirty years ago, where he has created and developed most of his work.
Nozal’s works have been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions, and he was awarded his first prize in New York City in 1996 by the Goya Art Gallery.
The artist is setting aside one picture from the exhibition, whose proceeds will go to Denia’s Solidarity Committee which includes Caritas, the Red Cross and the Salvation Army in Denia. It has a reserve price of €4,000 and those wishing to bid should contact the artist whose details are available at the exhibition.
Speaking of Nozal, Ruiz Inocentio Lasala of the Academy of Fine Arts of San Luis said “This artist has a Renoir delicacy and strength of Goya”.
The exhibition is on now at the Centre D’Art L’Estacio in Denia, until February 14.
Denia was once a Greek city named Hemeroskopeion, which means Watchtower. The city was later conquered by the Romans and renamed Dianium, and later became Denia.
