Self-portrait of Xoán Piñeiro

Homage to the illustrious Galician artist.

Xoán Piñeiro is one of the most iconic symbols of 20th-century Galician culture. He lived in Vigo for many years, where his beautiful religious artwork has left a timeless mark in the churches of San José Obrero and Los Apóstoles. The bust can be found in Xoán Piñeiro square and, despite being a copy (the original is in the Alameda Soage in Cangas do Morrazo), this gift from the sculptor keeps him alive in the memories of locals and visitors alike. The square is also home to a commemorative relief by the artist Manolo Buciños. Since 1999, nearly two decades after his death, the Xoán Piñeiro Foundation has been on a mission to promote the work of this remarkable artist.
