A unique art exhibition was presented on the seafront of Guardamar del Segura during the weekend of October 1 and 2. The theme of the exhibition was “Living with Skin Problems” and the works of over 20 students were exhibited to the public. .
Local talent was on display as well as the work of several English and Polish students from a local art school. The portraits were taken over the past two weeks. Portraits in the exhibit showed a woman in local locations with an exposed skin condition to reduce the stigma of skin conditions and conceal blemishes.
The exhibition aims to raise awareness of living with skin conditions, to improve acceptance of skin conditions and to help those affected. Exposure is especially powerful in the digital age of Photoshop and filters that often airbrush reality.
The city’s mayor, José Luis Sáez, tweeted his support for the exhibition, adding images to allow those who missed the exhibition to see the portraits.
