There is currently an art installation on the Bitxa Rotxa beach in Maio, Cape Verde. The work is by artist and sculptor Luis Guardia who was born in Tiscamanita in Fuerteventura, Spain. He seems to have red hearts as a theme running through his work and this is certainly the case with this Maio installation.
The exhibition is entitled ‘Amor a Maio’. It has been supported by airline company Binter and the Câmara Municipal do Maio. Nine red hearts are dotted along the main beach in Porto Inglês (Vila do Maio), giving the impression that they have fallen from the sky.
It is hoped that this installation by Luis Guardia will help to revive tourist interest in this lovely island.
