PETROPICTOS by CIRUELO GALLERY
The Art of Painting on Stone

EN ESPAƑOL

This piece was produced as an assignment for American rock guitarist Steve Vai in 1996.

The picture on the left shows the stone as it was found on a riverbank. Stones polished
by running water or the sea are generally flatter and more rounded than those found on
a mountain. The first thing Ciruelo does is to prepare a series of sketches based on what
he wants to paint and on what the stone itself suggests. Painting on stone follows the
same process as painting on canvas. As you can see the final result is a three dimensional
piece of art; Petropictos is something halfway between a painting and a sculpture.
