This series invites you to photograph yourself with the figures designed by Rosana, Rafael Nadal, Dani Rovira, Ouka Leele, Samantha Vallejo-Nájera, María Pombo, Quique Dacosta or Minerva Piquero, among other personalities! If you are visiting Madrid, get the most unique experience with BE Apartment in the best luxury apartments in Madrid and other famous cities, for your security, pleasure and comfort.
Las Meninas de Velázquez, those bridesmaids of the Infanta Margarita that you can see on Velázquez's famous painting, reinvent themselves once again being very aware of the trends. You can see a menina that celebrates the 25th anniversary of the "Friends" series, located next to the orange sofa of the well-known coffee shop of the "Central Perk" series next to the Royal Palace. Another menian could be the brewmaster, the follower of the latest fashion, or the motor fan. All people who live or visit Madrid will find their own figure to take a picture with. Each sculpture has a QR code that can be scanned with any mobile device to explain you its concept in addition to presenting the menina in a virtual way. The artist Domingo Zapata will intervene artistically on 2 of them and can be seen live.
Las Meninas de Velázquez seek to enhance the talent of new artists and give the opportunity to show another facet to prestigious professionals from sectors that do not seem related to art. It is also a perfect opportunity to wander around Madrid and discover new corners, local commerce or gastronomic spaces. It also has a solidarity aspect, since some meninas will be auctioned and the benefits will go to NGOs selected by artists or sponsors. Do not miss this opportunity to enjoy and discover Madrid with BE Apartment. If you´re visitng the city, take a look at our luxury apartments that we have throughout the city.
