Las Fallas de Valencia - Great Inspiration (Image heavy)

Hey everybody!

I wanted to share with you some images which my workmate and friend showed me recently. It was about his trip to a festival called Las Fallas in Valencia, Spain.
I never heard of it, which really surprised me, because it's such an amazing event. I was totally blown away by what I saw.
So every year this is a big spectacle in Valencia. Artists work about a year on giant papier-mâché figures, often 20 feet tall or even more.
At the end of the festival a jury is choosing a winner and finally each and every of these figures goes up in FLAMES!!! IT’S CRAZY!!!!
I find these figures are great inspiration and so well executed, design wise and also in terms of story-telling, action lines or composition.
The attention to detail in the models is amazing, as well as in the painting. There is just so much to discover.

By the way, most of these images were taken during the build-up phase, days before the big burn off.
Also this is only a small glimpse of it, overall there are about 250 figures spreaded within the whole city at this time.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy some of these images as much as I did.

Cheers,
Sven
