Naif guide to canary customs

Traducción al inglés del libro “Guía naïf de costumbres canarias” de Ángeles Violán y Rafael Arozarena


The most beautiful customs and traditions of the Canary Isles

Simbiosis between primitive art and literature

This “Naïf guide to canary customs” has been projected and realised by Ángeles Violán, a painter from Tenerife, who dedicates herself to the naïf arts, a naive and popular style, as an artistic form of expression, and who discover as well her literary facet. Furthermore, she counts with the important and excellent collaboration of the well-known writer, poet and novel-writer Rafael Arozarena, Canary Award for Literature, thus Arts and Literature form a perfect symbiotic relationship. The brush and the nib discover at the same time some scenes of local customs, simply and beautifully shown, charged with emotion, feeling and credible cultural information.

“This “Island Poem” is full of beauty, lustre and tenderness – the tenderness of Ángeles Violán’s figures. With these paintings, she pays homage to the Canary woman and to all the Canary Isles.” (Paloma Herrero, art critic)

“This book acquires the status of a sentimental museum which we can delve into joyously in pursuit of the purest identity of a people, whose pacifism and uprightness have always attracted the attention of scholars of its history and traditions.” (Rafael Arozarena, poet).

 

Also available the german translation “Galerie der kanarischen Volksbräuche“.
