The Vista Alegre centre in Torrevieja is played host to an artistic display which focused on the beauty of the ocean at night, under the title, “La Noche del Océano”.
The exhibition, closes on Sunday, featured 4,000 drawings, all composed through different styles and techniques, as well as an animated short film which is the showcase of the event.
Adapted from The Night Ocean, an original story by H.P. Lovecraft, Robert H. Barlow, the exhibition tells the mythological story originally published in 1936, about an artist who rents a lonely house by the sea and finds both solitude and horror in his surroundings.
Using the backdrop of Torrevieja scenery to tell the tale, with its coves and beaches providing a similar scene to that set in the original short story, local artist María Lorenzo Hernández brought the traditional imagery to life in a fusion with the modern world that also seems to reflect the past.
