The Centre for Canary Art has been known to be a prime address for any kind of event on the cultural spectrum.
The museum was founded 1991 by the artist Manuel Delgado Camino. In his youth, he started out his career as an apprentice in a well-known toy store in his home town. It was his hobby to restore mechanical toys. Later, his passion for restoration included pottery and paintings. Several years later, he finished his first artwork, a trampoline, for a new company known for its plastic arts. His trampoline is still an exhibition sample as it remained in the premises of the company “Madelca” in Las Palmas. Due to his strong bond with the artists, from time to time, he nowadays even joins cultural events hosted by the local art scene. In the 1970s he opened his first art exhibition in Las Palmas, followed by a second one in Madrid.
