Raúl Ruiz is 'el Niño de las Pinturas', Granada's Banksy.

This exhibition is of his studio works, 'leaving the street for more opportune moments', he says; works in which he has transferred the essence of his street art to the more conventional medium of canvas. His street art blends classical drawing, painting and poetry with inspirational roots in the comic, cartoons, and Arabic writing. He says.

There is also sculpture executed in collaboration with José Mansilla Melero, a photographic review of his more important graffiti from all over the world, and a video filmed for the occasion, explaining how the creative process of translating street art to the studio works.

Midsummer night, on the eve of Saint John's, 24 June, - that's when the Carrera del Agua, the Water Run, takes place, lasting about an hour. The one and a half kilometre run is a free-for-all, when people drench each other with any means available: hosepipes, water-filled balloons, buckets of water, water pistols....

 

There is also a lively procession along the town's main street, with music and fancy dress...
