Overview

Antonio Padrón Museum-House: As indigenous research and art centre, this institution belongs to the Gran Canaria Island Council, created with the aim to acquire, preserve, study, exhibit and disseminate the works from this painter born in Gáldar (Gran Canaria) and the movement that raised the need of founding a Canary art tradition which could reflect both island identity features and a way of seeing Nature and interpreting its social reality from the indigenous side. This monographic museum has experienced a long history of over 40 years within the cultural environment of this town and the island. Settled in the former workshop of the artist, it contains the most complete collection of Padrón's works.

This House-Museum of Antonio Padrón is not only worth the visit for the work of Padrón on display (including his magnificent garden, much reduced from its original size but still an oasis of calm) but also on account of its being a participative museum with...More

We loved the paintings by this indigenous artist - vibrant and dynamic. The gallery was well laid out with information on each painting in English as well as Spanish. Lovely cool courtyard garden and the artist's studio was an amazing light-filled space which made us...More
