An extraordinary draftsman, agile in pencil and charcoal, Ignacio Gil has immortalized landscapes from all over Spain, Mediterranean fishing ports, various European cities, etc., all captured by a round brush stroke and a studied colour.
The Balearic Island Council has awarded him a prize for the many times he has immortalized the lands, people and sea of Ibiza.
