"Ukraine in the heart of Aragon"

The Cortes pay tribute with the painting "Ukraine in the heart of Aragon".

The Bureau of the Aragonese Parliament has presented this morning the canvas made by José Manuel Cardiel to raise awareness of the situation of the Ukrainian people at the time that marks one year of the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine
The president of the Cortes de Aragón, Javier Sada, accompanied by the members of the Bureau Ramiro Domínguez and Itxaso Cabrera, have received this morning the painting "Ukraine in the heart of Aragon", a work designed by José Manuel Cardiel to pay tribute to the Ukrainian people on the occasion of the first anniversary of the war in Ukraine.
In addition, Sada explained that the Aragonese painter José Manuel Cardiel "had already made a painting about the war in Ukraine" as the one designed for the last Aragon Day held at the Aljafería Palace, which was given to the Ukrainian Association of Residents in Aragon (AURA). The canvas will remain this week in the Aragonese Parliament and then will be donated to the pictorial and artistic heritage of the Aljafería and the Cortes. 

The Aragonese painter José Manuel Cardiel, a specialist in Stomatology and vice-president of the Zaragoza College of Physicians, explained that with his work he tries to "create awareness of a situation that must be stopped" through abstract and vigorous painting in which he transmits strength with the colors of the two flags. With this technique that combines the movement of the body with that of painting, gravity and force, Cardiel reflects feelings and moods in a different way in each of his canvases.
