It was by the banks of the River Bidasoa where my passion for painting was born, and capturing it was always a challenge. These days the River, its villages and traditions are my main source of inspiration.

I would like to express my gratitude to this marvelous river for all that it has shown me along its course.
With respect and humility I have expressed that through my work.
I invite children, their parents, keen artists and everyone who would like to discover the joys of the River Bidasoa in my art, to visit my studio in Lesaka (Navarre).

Surrounded by a hundred-year- old wood and just a short walk from the fine village of Lesaka, Juan Carlos PIKABEA opens up his studio to share with us with work and hospitality.

Art and nature lovers will be able to find a magical expression of his land and culture in his brushstrokes.
