Antonio Banderas Square, Puerto Banús, welcomed a momentous occasion on the 16th of June with the grand opening of Twisted Art Gallery. A gathering of nearly 200 distinguished guests celebrated the arrival of this avant-garde art gallery, relishing the opportunity to meet the visionary owners and four remarkable artists whose works were on display.
The exclusive opening night, reserved for invitees only, provided art enthusiasts with a unique chance to engage in insightful conversations with acclaimed artists such as The Connor Brothers, Pure Evil, Opake, and Tim Fishlock. Pure Evil, in particular, astounded attendees by unveiling his limited-edition exclusive collection of 25 pieces, masterfully crafted solely for this gallery. Accompanying the artistic experience, DJ Amando Gottafunker delivered an exceptional musical performance, while Robiza, the event’s sponsors, delighted guests with their innovative selection of Spanish wines.
