When I visited the estate where Zoleam’s hundred-year-old olive trees are located on the cobbled terraces overlooking the Duero River, I fell in love with the place. The ecological and cultural commitment to the conservation of the endangered variety of the Zorzal olive captivated me and aroused my interest. Olive oil is a green golden coloured liquid, a source of life. My will as an artist is to commit myself only to projects whose contents make a better world. And the Zoleam olive oil is in tune with my way of feeling everything that is vital to nourish us from our essences. I was moved by the cobbled terraces when I painted the Z of Zoleam, a Z that also pronounces Zamora and Zorzal, with a torn, steep graphic design like the terraces, rigorous, with a certain orientalist and povera harmony. That is the energy that inspired me when I walked through these beautiful hundred-year-old olive groves under organic cultivation. I was excited about the magic in these terraces overlooking the Duero. Good art has an alchemic, holistic power… Like that of Zoleam organic olive oil, its delicious taste, intensity and its exceptional nutritional virtues”.
