Cabildo President María Dolores Corujo remembered César Manrique yesterday on the 30th anniversary of his death.
“It’s three decades since we lost the genius, our favoured son, but his light and his arguments are more important than ever in a world that is in conflict and a planet that is faced with the threat of climate change,” said Corujo.
Now, more than ever, we need figures such as César Manrique -. a man who used dialogue as the medium for meetings, and who turned art into a brilliant way of expressing love for nature.”
Manrique died in a car accident on 25th September 1992, at the crossroads in Tahiche which has now been converted into a roundabout and is overlooked by one of his most beautiful wind toys, the whirling silver Fobos.
