I watched a short film on Catalan artist, Joan Gardy Artigas today that’s set at his farmhouse in rural Barcelona. Artigas is 79, and still sketches and sculpts every day. The 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s were his heyday. He collaborated with Miró, and Picasso, Chagall and Giacometti were among his many artist friends. “I’m happy with my life. It has been long and intense. I’ve done many things. If I had to choose, I would do it all over again.” If you have a few moments, watch it. The gardens around his farmhouse are so beautiful, (listen for the birds) as is this shot of Gardy-Artigas sitting at his potter’s wheel.
