Pichiavo‘s monumental sculpture for Falles celebration in Valencia

29 Março, 2019 0 Por Artes & contextos

Valencian born artists Pichi and Avo set alight their 26 metre high Neo classical sculpture covered with their trademark graffiti. Taking over one year to create, the giant structure made from wood and cardboard was the centrepiece of the annual Las Fallas (fire) Festival in the Spanish city of Valencia. See below images from the installation to the burning which took place on Tuesday 19th March.

Fallas de València is a traditional celebration held every year in commemoration of Saint Joseph, and it includes the year-long building and eventual burning of large-scale public statues. The peak of the event takes place around midnight on March 19, when around 400 Falles are burnt as huge bonfires through the city of Valencia.
