Mediterranean sea = Tusquets

Manolo Blahnik. Shoe designer. Santa Cruz de la Palma, Canary Islands, 1942


Could Don Oscar Tusquets’s magnificent universal vision be called Mediterranean? Yes! / Every time I come into visual contact with his work, I am confronted with the most powerful evocation of the forms and culture of the Mediterranean. Sensual curves and columns, elegant fronts, exciting volumes, luminous spaces and indescribably beautiful cupolas, infinite transformations, mythological power, mystery, Syracuse, Notto, Mérida, Herculaneum, Granada, wisteria, Caserta, lemons, the whole lot magically wrapped up in the utmost modernity.
