Flamenco with a twist
The Flamenco is a Spanish dance and folk music, originally from the south of Spain, the province of Andalusia. Flamenco consists of singing, guitarmusic, dance and hand clapping. It was first mentioned in 1774. The flamenco is often associated with so-called ‘Gitanos’, Romani’s from Spain, as a fairly large part of flamenco artists come from this etnic group.
I have created a series of flamenco paintings which I call ‘flamenco with a twist’ as the dancers in these paintings are usually not dancing. They tell a story of mystery, passion and sensuality.
Below a number of my flamenco ladies. Check out the website for original, postcards and posters.
