Hostal Salinas Hosts Monica Benet Art Exhibition

Contemporary Spanish abstract artist Monica Benet, a talented craftswoman who resides in Marbella, will hold an Ibiza exhibition at Boutique Hostal Salinas this week.  The exhibition entitled Verni Ssage will take place as a private viewing over two days, Thursday the 16th and Friday the 17th of September, from 6.30 pm to midnight at the beachside venue which changed ownership last season

The new Italian owners have completely turned around the business model at the venue, which now provides a more sophisticated and artistic offering to its clients. The former party venue has been reborn under its new management and is tapping into the ever-growing wellness and healing market on the island.

While this market has always been present bubbling under the surface, it has really bloomed in the absence of the clubs this year. The Dutch have plugged into this sector and have brought a certain professionalism to bear, with many old fincas transformed as retreats, yoga and wellness centers, offering a more refined and stylish experience. 

Benet is no stranger to Ibiza and spent four years at Escola d’Arts d’Eivissa, nearby to where she hosts her latest exhibition

She also studied Psychology at A-Level in London along with Spanish and French which led her to Paris for three years picking up a Diploma in Textile Design. This combined with time spent living with diverse cultures in Morocco, Japan and Switzerland have influenced her style towards fusion designs, a rich bazaar of tactile and visual work.

It’s an exciting time for the island’s artistic direction and the venue Boutique Hostal Salinas, as a new wave of fresh and creative people and concepts land on her shores.

UFO Activity Lights Up The Ibiza Skies

Sitting outside on the phone at 10.15 pm the object appeared in the Northern sky. At first, it appeared like a shooting star but when it changed direction and started to flash a green colour, it raised eyebrows. Then with a flash, it burst into a static white light and remained stationary for one minute before returning to a fast green flashing light and moved away again. When it travelled it changed colour to green and moved in a swift cross-shaped and circular formation. This silent sequence occurred four to six times in an approximate 5 minute period before suddenly disappearing again.

Carl Cox and Space Back in The Ibiza Game.

There has been much speculation in recent years as to the plans of Carl Cox and Space, ever since they departed the Ibiza stage in 2016. Cox’x PR and marketing team did a good job keeping his name relevant and in the headlines, through a series of rumours and leaks that surrounded his future on the island. Much of them centered around a new Space venue emerging in San Antonio, the home town of its founder Pepe Rosello, who with the winnings from a lottery ticket, went on to build one of the most iconic clubs in the world. In an interview I did with Javier Anadon of Cafe Mambo he told me when Pepe left for Playa Den Bossa in !987 San Antonio lost an “important person” his creative influence lent the resort a lot of its Ibicenco charm and style.
