Rubeń Melgar Jimenez
We support a local artist Rubeń Melgar Jimenez. A young and talented 'Arriateńo' (people from Arriate are called this) whom you will often see taking his morning ‘mollete y café‘ with his dog Lolo at Paco’s Café on Calle de Jose Montes.
Ruben is passionate about his village and the surrounding countryside (this we have noted is a theme – the young people of the area are proud and happy to be living there and contribute to the community in art, education and community affairs).
Using watercolours, acrylics and graphite for his work Ruben has provided us with art for the villa which we think denotes modern Andalucia. All his artwork is for sale. He will also happily do commissions!
He’s a talented artist and a good person whom we’re pleased to have as a friend and we’re sure you would enjoy getting to know him. He speaks a little English and he would be happy to come down to the house to meet you to discuss the paintings and his work. Or you can always meet him and Lolo at Paco’s!
