The second year students of the Baccalaureate of Plastic Arts, Image and Design of the IES Pere Maria Orts i Bosch have received a visit from Arly Jones, one of the four creators of 'Illustration Alicantina', the collective exhibition that occupies the espai d'art urbà de Benidorm until January 14, framed in the 'Benidorm Expone', promoted by the Department of Historical Heritage coordinated by Ana Pellicer.

Pellicer recalls that "espais d'art urbà bring art closer to the streets." Exhibitions such as ‘Illustration Alicantina’ "transform Benidorm into a great open-air museum, an open space in which neighbors and visitors can enjoy art simply by taking a walk."

"Now," emphasizes the councilor, "we can go further if we encourage the encounter between authors and art students." "It is positive that all this professional baggage, the experience that the years, the effort and the work give, can also be transmitted to the artists of the future." In meetings like this one at Pere Maria Orts i Bosch, creators and students “share experiences, knowledge is transmitted, talent is generated”.

The idea of ​​Historical Heritage is that the talks of the artists who join 'Benidorm Expone' with the students continue “as an additional activity to link art to society with the collaboration of today's creators and, of course, also with those of tomorrow ”, emphasized the councilor.

Arly Jones (Callosa de Segura, 1968) is a conceptual artist of international projection who handles perfectly with illustration or 2D animation. He has worked on multiple projects, such as the Oscar-nominated animated film ‘Chico y Rita’, directed by Fernando Trueba and Xavier Mariscal; He is a screenwriter for 'Absolute love', a video nominated for an award from Manchester Animation Festival; and he also teaches classes at the Miguel Hernández University.
