Xoana Almar visits the Rexenera Fest
Cestola na Cachola cooperative returns to the festival thanks to this illustrator, painter and graffiti artist
Xoana Almar is one of the guest artists of Rexenera Fest 2020, the street art festival which will take place between July 16 and 26. She studied Illustration, Economics and Anthropology. She was trained in Granada and in that city she begins to work as a painter in 2008. In 2013 she returns to Galicia and creates, together with Miguel Peralta and Raquel Doallo, the cooperative Cestola na Cachola, where she works as a muralist, painter and illustrator.
Cestola na cachola
Cestola na Cachola is a collective self-employment project created by three people who wanted to earn a living working in the artistic field through conscious consumption. Xoana Almar, Miguel Peralta and Raquel Doallo are the creative minds behind this project. The first two create pictures, murals, story illustrations, posters … They combine individual and joint creation. Raquel Doallo works and is active in the field of social and solidarity economy and conscious consumption.
Cestola na Cachola has already left its mark on Carballo at Rexenera Fest 2015. Nömada (Miguel Peralta) painted a wall then: A Pedra da Moura (The Dark Woman Stone). It was meant as a tribute to matriarchy, specifically to Galician women.
