2019 Natwest International Island Games Commemorative Stamps Artwork to be Exhibited at GEMA 


The Gibraltar 2019 NatWest International Island Games commemorative stamps artworks, produced by local artist Leslie Gaduzo, will be exhibited at the GEMA Gallery as from this week.

 Leslie Gaduzo was approached by the Gibraltar Philatelic Bureau to produce the illustrations. He enthusiastically accepted and threw himself into the task of depicting all fourteen sporting disciplines to be held during the games. His initial idea and one that he was keen to maintain throughout the project, was to try to depict athletes in motion, at their most dynamic.“That moment when a crucial point in motion is arrived at and which encapsulates all the energy, effort and gracefulness that goes into being a sportsperson.” 

The exhibition will be open to the public on Friday 21st June to Friday 12th July 2019. 

These small exhibitions, are a development initiative launched earlier in the year, by Gibraltar Cultural Services, on behalf of the Ministry of Culture, with the aim to provide opportunities for artists’ whilst at the same time raising their profile and that of the Gallery.
