In May this year the first edition of the Concurso de Pintura Rápida took place with twenty-five participants. The competitive artists were challenged with painting an area of Arrecife – the top three winners received cash prizes.

The contest was born from a collective aim of promoting culture & creativity in the capital. In the first edition the twenty-five contestants had equal sized canvas’ each, which couldn’t contain any commercial brands or be recreations of other paintings.

1st place winner Daniel Rodríguez Báez won 800 euros for his stunning painting of the Castillo de San Gabriel and the view from it.

The contest is returning for its second edition this September, with prizes ranging between 300 and 800 euros.

Those wishing to register have until the 20th of September to do so, with the competition taking place on the 24th. You can register online here: https://arrecife.sedelectronica.es/.
