The Tenerife Museum of Nature and Archaeology (MUNA) is hosting an exhibition dedicated to the most recent project by local artist Facundo Fierro, who had not shown his work in Tenerife for the past ten years. In this project, titled Piel de la isla (Skin of the Island), Fierro explores the landscapes of the island with his brushstrokes, delicately showing the subtle nuances of the slopes and ravines of the Canary Islands.

Fierro’s work portrays the island’s peculiar geography and physiognomy. The lines and colours hint at the local flora and fauna too. The traces of human presence in the natural environment are also revealed, in an effort to reach out to the viewer in their appreciation of art and brushstrokes on canvas.
