ACEO CLOWN PORTRAIT #188 “Churry Silva"


ACEO Clown #188 “Churry Silva"
Acrylic on paper,  2 ½” x 3 ½”

ACEO Clown portrait #188 is inspired by a multidisciplinary clown artist Churry Silva (Orense, Spain). Coming from an important family of circus tradition in Spain (Feijoo-Silva) it was predictable that Churry would choose this path. He was trained in various comic and acrobatic disciplines at the International Circus School of "Los Muchachos" and then combined his work with his training in theater and pantomime at the Institut del teatre (Barcelona).

Director with his partner Alejandra Oviedo of one of the most prominent circus companies in Madrid, the company Ale Hop and possibly one of the precursors of the New Spanish Circus back in the 80's. Churry Silva celebrates 35 years of professional career dedicated to the circus, street arts, imaginary theater and especially the world of "Clown", serving as director for his own company and signing the direction, advice and external vision of multiple projects of circus and clowns in Spain. 

Churry Silva continues with his company participating in countless international festivals, shows of his own production, events, international galas and circus and theater projects and fighting day by day for the authentic "Clowns" of trade and heart, to dignify this beautiful profession that as he says, in many cases is used as an easy resource to pass the time.
