Monday of this week, José and I went to visit the flamboyant maestro,
Andrés Monreal, at his home and studio which is a primeval finca that is
buried in the woods and the countryside of San Mateo.
Andrés Monreal is an extraordinary artist and a man who on the initial
meeting gives a glare and a stare that goes all the way through you like
a gilt-edged sabre cutting butter.
did most of the talking whilst I made myself busy by taking some
pictures of this character, his environment and the soundings that he
lives and works in to create his bizarre paintings that are always in
