During my one year stay in Cuenca, Ecuador I had the pleasure to meet and become friends with paintor Gustavo López Moreno, one of the most inspiring persons I’ve met so far. Troughout my time in Ecuador, I spent loads of time in his studio and accompanied him to many exhibitions, meetings and events. As time went by, I also got in touch with his wife María and his daughter Maria Gracia as well as his sons Christian, Bernardo and Nicolas. By the end of the year I felt like I already was a part of the family and once in a while Gustavo used to call me his „fourth son“ which I’m very thankful about. His gallery is located in the historic centre of Cuenca (Luis Cordero y Calle Larga, 4-17), Ecuador.
