Feria de Sevilla – The Seville Fair

s1

If you have ever been to Spain you may have heard of Feria de Sevilla or the Fair of Seville. It began in 1847 and started as a Livestock Fair back in the day. Since that time it has become a yearly occurence and lasts for two weeks following Semana Santa (Holy Week) in April or May.

Nowadays it is a huge spring festival of Spanish culture including market stalls, art, horseriding, dancing, traditional Spanish tapas and partying through the night. If you go to Spain during this time you would likely see beautiful art capturing this festival in all its forms. The style of art you often see is vivid, colourful and retro in style.

I was inspired by Feria de Sevilla and its artwork to create this painting of mine.

Have you been inspired to create something artistic after visiting another country? I’d love to hear about it.
