Artiste

September 22, 2017

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 MirĂ³, 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.

    What a beautiful way of life for an artist. I am enamoured by the ambience he works in – at his old farm house – a perfect surrounding for his creations and his mental space. I am a painter myself from India and also a film actress and a director. I want to visit the studio of Mr. Joan Gardy Artigas and meet the artist. I wish to learn from him. perhaps i could be an apprentice and work in his studio for some time.
