Drawing Fuengirola – Mijas. (DFM)
This new group was formed locally by Susi Marquez and her friends in June 2016.
The Group meets every Wednesday at c. 7 to 9 PM in different venues in Fuengirola and Mijas. Members get updates as they occur via MeetUp.
The group DFM has a Facebook page.
Background since inception.
live in Mijas Costa, Malaga. Whenever we ask, especially before the “mijacosteños” and more to the Harriers, where we are, we say that of Fuengirola. And if you answer that you are Mijas people you think you live in the mountains and go from side to side in burrotaxi. And below the mijeños we have always done everything in Fuengirola. To begin with , until well entered and 80 were not here Institute, we had to go to Fuengirola. Similarly, shops, cinemas, bars and restaurants were outside that Lagunera Mijas coast where I live. And medical consultations. We, when we say we’re going to Fuengirola center. And as everyone knows exists here that street as well called “The Union” in which a sidewalk belongs to a municipality and in front of another.
So when I returned from Scotland in May and wanted to organize a group of cartoonists following parameters linked to drawing Madrid, I could not do anything but call Drawing Fuengirola – Mijas / Mijas Drawing Fuengirola- .
Lately, the cultural life of Malaga is pretty hectic. Between museums, galleries and alternative spaces also address this aspect, one not clear where to go every day, there is always an interesting event also, the same time as another equally or even more interesting by the day is already done.
But Malaga is not fully accessible to those who live in provinces that we are forced to go out there without a drink in exchange for keeping our points intact traffic to go home as we go through sobriety checkpoints or at best, we can take a quick cervecilla before saying goodbye to people when the soiree is more sympathetic to us not escape the train. The last one leaves around eleven.
My endeavor that this is the last time you return from anywhere and could stay once and forever here led me to organize meetings DFM group to, among others, to create an environment of people interested in art and , of course, he is drawing. This environment would form friends and artists who already know and other people with the same concerns they should go around here and they were discovered.
So the first day I convened an event candidate obtains two people, my sister and Andrián Adrian Guzman , who is, after twenty sessions held, which has lost less meetups, as almost always involved. It came with a checkered notebook yet still brings from time to time and has finished working with his music (he is a guitarist and songwriter) posing for us or brightening the days we spent in special, when we visited the workshops of local artists. Now we often meet up to 30 people.
Our headquarters can say is Mr Rohs, cultural bar who run the artist José María Córdoba , his wife Anette Anette Skou and chef Oliver Hougaard .This bar has an exhibition space as well as being the meeting place of artists in the area and to hold numerous cultural events such as poetry readings, book presentations and art workshops. The same Cordoba, had the great generosity of opening the doors of his workshop in Valtocado where we spent a wonderful day and learned a lot about his work and the process followed when working on it.
In the Rohs we have also had the collaboration of Angel Idígoras, who gave us a workshop of cartoons that had an absolute success and which had a bomb.
Mireille Bartolini Markarian , gallery owner in the area, lend us your local on numerous occasions and there have carried out as fun sessions like those that helped us prepare Mila Screams, with costumes pin-up style that sells in his store Kissme and the collaboration of a real pin-up girl, Danu. Mireille was the same model when we organized the session Edith Piaf.
And next Wednesday, October 26 there will hold our next meeting which will focus on the traditional Don Juan that these days usually represented by all the Spanish geography, despite the American export happy Halloween.We’ve had to a drawing session in the beautiful gardens of Tracey, one of the group participants.
Also in my workshop (Workshop Susana Gonzalez Marquez ) have been very fun things, like when Ote Maria Jose Calderon held session collage or things as instructive as when Paco Sanguino showed us his work and all the tricks he uses in developing it.
These artists have scored more, as Juanjo Fuentes also was kind enough to come up with original work so that we drew. Carlos Lamani Gutierrez , cartoonist who now has his work exhibited at the Gallery 7 Mr Rohs, he prepared us a magnificent cartoon workshop and made us all change aptitude when face reading a comic, as we revealed all the secrets and resources used by the artist when narrating bulleted.
But Fuengirola Mijas drawing it up, especially cartoonists. People interested in this so forgotten and maligned and often in art as in the drawing. These people with their presence, make DFM.
And it not just with his presence, for the collaboration of all is amazing and surprising. Reaching involved in many ways, posing, giving ideas, acting and directing workshops even when I have been impossible to me. Natalia is the case Madueño, degree in Fine Arts and a great friend sculptor who ever held DFM sessions.
External collaborations of one who has to do in principle nothing with this also have a totally disinterested way, as have hacho all who have helped us, from myself, who organized this for the simple pleasure I and what I like these meetings, through the spaces we use and ending with the artists who teach us do workshops and lectures for the group. So, we have had Sara Thai, who has posed many times for artists, especially photographers, the day we Kiki Montparnase especially in the elegant and genuine Speakeasy, on ramps. Michelangelo, musician, psychologist and yoga teacher, has also posed us, like Miriam Cissy Benezra . Maite MG, from Fuengirola actress, is always ready to help, and Fernando Castillo, professor of Yoga and Gestalt therapist, allowed us to draw during one of his sessions Yoga at Casita Feliz a breathtakingly beautiful and peaceful place.
The last magical moment that has given us DFM was Sunday 23 October.We have spent a fantastic day in the studio of sculptor Antonio Yesa . We opened the doors of his shop and was greeted with great warmth and kindness. Through this initiative, people who had never visited the workshop of Antonio have done it, experiencing it all firsthand experience of seeing an artist in his own half and learning from his words and his work, of course, was there.
I hope to continue doing these events all the time as I can and hope people follow so involved and importance we give back to something as basic and fundamental in art and in life as in the drawing. Very necessary for artists and for everyone. But that is another issue which might have to write something the other day.
And finally, say that everyone, absolutely everyone who wants to participate in DFM, whether beginner, advanced or someone who has never made a drawing in your life, you can go to events every Wednesday held somewhere Fuengirola and Mijas and those who may have news through our Facebook page Fuengirola-Mijas Drawing / Drawing Fuengirola-Mijas.

So, so simply describes the illustrator Susi Márquez the aim of the meetings since last May has organized the Collective Drawing Fuengirola-Mijas, which is the coordinator, and last Sunday, Day 2, chose the mijeño workshop painter Jose Maria Cordoba in Valtocado, as a place of inspiration. Some meetings that go beyond being a simple creative workshop. “It was an incredible experience,” said Cordoba, who explained to twenty people who attended the meeting how he develops his work and what are their sources of inspiration. “He is very interested in art people,” he said. Located in the countryside, “with amazing views and an almost absolute silence,” the workshop of the artist mijeño offers an ideal environment to find inspiration.
It is “a beautiful activity , ” said the sculptor Antonio Yesa, who announced that he will be he who offers his workplace for a new appointment. “The truth is that it is an ideal place for a wonderful Sunday morning entertainment , ” said Ciro architect of the tower. “Is special; to enjoy “reflected Inmaculada Fernández, passionate” always “for drawing.
But not only meeting attended by people related to art. Isabel Corrales was his “first contact”. “No drawing since childhood and here I am playing with pencils. But I discovered that drawing is almost like a meditative act, which allows me to connect with my heart . It gives me peace and quiet joy. So I will repeat for sure. ” Drawing Collective meets every Wednesday in different parts of Mijas and Fuengirola. They can follow their steps through Facebook.
