The artist

Fernando Ledesma is a Salamanca-born painter and sculptor Fernando Ledesma personifies the vitality and verve of art in Castilla y León. His extensive portfolio includes painting, sculpture and décor… forged by a long-standing career in art that includes exhibitions in Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, the USA, Mexico and Germany, etc.

He has transformed the traditional granaries situated in the town of Cilloruelo, just a few kilometers outside the city of Salamanca, left to him by his father, the poet José Ledesma, into an art complex. It includes his own workshop and studio as well as two unique apartments offering the chance to relax in the tranquil atmosphere on the banks of the Tormes in a truly artistic setting.

Fernando Ledesma’s paintings are characterized by his close study of the subjects and the use of natural pigments and iron-based oxides. The result is a palette of colors, similar to those used in traditional Spanish painting. Earth and ochre tones that appear to emerge from the lands of Castile, shades of iron and rust that blend to form a perfect balance with Nature.


Participatory, flexible, intercultural, cooperative.


Objective of the activities is to cooperate in the transmission of the QFWF Wheel of Intercultural Philosophy on the Art of Living. This will be aimed at by means of a series of themes presented in the masterclasses. The themes are based on the five natural elements/ elementary fields of wisdom: Earth, water, fire, air and ether.

That is why, Masterclass “Serendipity” comprises a total of five sessions, based on these elementary fields. It is advisable to attend all five sessions, but they are independent, so it also offers the possibility of attending one or more of the sessions, depending on availability and choice.
