De Vera’s art is subtle and invites the viewer to contemplate mortality, the passage of time, seeing, and silence. If you have time, watch the 47-minute film about the artist. It is quite impressionistic and gives you an even greater appreciation of his work.

An enjoyable visit to this gallery, with the pictures by Cristino de Vera - I had never heard of this Tenerifean artist, but loved his work. A beautiful old building, sensitively restored, as well.
