Ermita de la Virgen de los Remedios 

(Vélez Málaga)

General sight of the Project. Composition.


Project Description

The project consists in the decoration of the inner walls of the hermitage using the fresco  technique. The total surface to be painted by Evaristo Guerra is around 1150 squared meters.

The artist pretends to "make the walls transparent" so the Virgin of the Remedies could see beneath the walls. The landscapes correspond to those around the church. In the lower part, traditional jobs are represented, as well as religious scenes in the higher part of the walls.

The aim of the project is the faith that the artist professes to the "Virgin of the Remedies". The artist donates his work three months a year. Since 2003 he is painting 8 months a year thanks to a subvention received from three institutions (Cajamar, Fundacion Malaga and Tourism Office of Andalucia).
