The Estepona Council has announced that Room 1 and the Patio of the Casa de Las Tejerinas, situated in the corner of Plaza de las Flores, will host an exhibition of José’s sculptures from Monday, January 18, at 4.30 pm.

Curated by the Estación 2B Cultural Association and the Council’s Historical Heritage department, the exhibition consists of 15 pieces carved in wood and 10 painted wall planks. It can be visited until February 10, Tuesday to Saturday, from 9 am to 8 pm, with free access, complying with anticovid measures.

José Manuel Toirán is not an ordinary artist. A native of Sarria, Lugo (Galicia), as a child he made sculptures with plasticine and, as a teenager, developed his own style in the school of mosaics of Padre San Millán. He declares himself self-taught and universal in influences, a melting pot of vital experiences that he has accumulated from delineation studies to practices in the world of construction, through real estate management and contact with peripheral worlds and border cultures in Cuba, Algeria, Morocco, Senegal or Guinea Bisau. Toirán is in love with design – his profession for more than a quarter of a century – with the purity of lines and the tangled contours of the world.

José Manuel López Toirán’s work is a tribute to nature. It is expressed with preference, although not exclusively, through wood as a noble material above all things. The artist delves into the collective imagination based on his own psyche, talent and taste. Nothing is random in the execution or in the result. Everything responds to a mental programme with stations of departure and arrival in nature as in the great path of life.
