art in majorca that's close enough to touch

Imagine you had the chance to meet the world-renowned Catalan painter Joan Miró. Imagine he invited you into his studio and spoke to you about his art. No doubt, this would have been one of the most memorable moments of your life. Well, Miró died in 1983 in Palma de Mallorca, but to this day thousands of people still visit his studio, Son Boter, as well as his workshop and the museum dedicated to his work in Cala Major.

Now imagine that, instead of Miró himself, you meet a contemporary Majorcan artist, who guides you through his studio, talks about his work, and answers many of the questions you might have had for Miró. Imagine, also, that he is happy to talk to you about his background and training, and about his artistic vision, and why he has chosen to live and work here in Majorca and nowhere else. You have the opportunity to explore his place of work, to look at paintings, sculptures and ceramics, and perhaps even buy a piece that you particularly like. You can smell the paints and other materials, enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine with the artist, and far removed from the bustle and crowds of a gallery opening, you can take time to appreciate his art. He will explain to you the processes by which his art was created, his techniques, and how his work has been received by critics and buyers.

If you like the sound of all this, please read on. art balear offers you precisely this kind of sensory tour through artists' studios. Which artist to visit? Well, that's up to you. Whatever you decide, one thing is guaranteed: you'll be welcomed like an old acquaintance.
