Foni Ardao

Pioneer of skateboarding in Asturias, he is a technical architect, musician and also an artist. Born in Gijón, Ardao has produced works for institutions, companies and groups, with a style that has a naïve touch and uses iconographic elements of nature, childhood or music.

Once again in Parees we wanted to honor artists from Asturian literature. This time the subject was María Josefa Canellada, Romanist, dialectologist, folklorist and narrator, author of Montesín (1980), the first story in Asturian aimed at a young audience.

We invited Foni to capture scenes from Montesín’s story in the La Granja library, specializing in children’s literature, in San Francisco Park.
