The colours of Tierrafino,
producer of clay-earthen plasters and paints, find their origin in Carl Giskes’
long travels around the world, which he undertook in his early years.
The title “IQUITOS GREEN” of
the exhibition of paintings by Peruvian artist ANTONIO BARRERA BANDA is derived
from the GREEN of the Amazon Jungle and IQUITOS, Peru, where Antonio lives and
works as both artist and healer. People come to him from all over the world!
For Tierrafino this visit of
Antonio is very special indeed because he is a healing artist, something we
believe to be of great importance in the function of art. Antonio has come to us via
our long-term relationship with Zdenek Ruprecht from Brno/Czech Republic and
we’re looking forward to his presence and work in our community.We feel Antonio brings a
great gift: To allow people to live in connection with the earth. And that is also
what our Tierrafino healthy and beautiful clay-earthen products do help
By interlacing art and
business, Tierrafino aims to create an environment where there is room to enjoy
and share, to exchange ideas, and experiences. We have always brought people
together from different disciplines and all corners of the world, by supplying
the most beautiful and healthy clay-products and expressing our awareness to pressing causes around the world.
Iquitos Green, this exhibition
by Antonio, is a perfect example. By bringing together art, economy and
people we want to live our vision that joining sustainability, health and
beauty is truly an opportunity - through creative thinking and doing.
We warmly welcome Antonio
Barrera Banda with his exhibition IQUITOS GREEN in the Tierrafino community -
to which he will bring true joy, ancestralwisdom and healing.
