‘Fillas de la Riba’

This artwork is part of ‘Fillas de la Riba’, a series of monochrome murals on old wooden doors spread through the old streets around Riba-roja d’Ebre, created by the Austrian artist Bianca Tschaikner. It’s a playful reflection on Riba-roja’s past, inspired by old photographs of the inhabitants of Riba-roja traditional clothes, ancient juniper production, the river Ebre and stories from the remarkable life of Teresa Aguilà Garcia, an illustrious inhabitant of Riba-roja.

Filla de la Riba, daughter of river, gave name to the art project in which I worked here at the Riu d’art Residency in Riba-roja d’Ebre, Catalonia. She was inspired by old photographs villagers over the last century.

Her new book, SAVARI – an illustrated journey through Iran and India has been published in Austria Bucher Verlag and is available here.
