A committed, constant man who has dedicated his life to Huelva’s art and culture and who has become a very important figure in the plastic arts in Huelva”.
In addition, in relation to the activities arranged by the council for the start of the Centenary, Cruz assured that “from the City Council we have done everything on our part to turn this anniversary into a true celebration of art and culture in Huelva, Huelva and for Huelva. And what better than to do it from a multidisciplinary approach in which the different branches of art are intertwined, serving each other as vehicles for the mutual knowledge of our culture”.
In the exhibition, Crespo’s look at the world of the stage and theater is portrayed, which was born in large part, as the artist himself explained, “from the moment of introspection and personal recollection of confinement.” Among the paintings, almost all of them unpublished and created for the occasion, you can find theater scenes from different disciplines, portraits of actors, musicians or sopranos. All this with the personal style of non-realistic figuration based on the analysis of the form and the concept that characterizes Crespo’s painting.
