Alliron Bizkaia, Art on the Bridge

As part of the 125th Anniversary and as an action cutting across the project on iron landscapes around the Bilbao estuary led by the Bizkaia bridge (, it has organised an artistic initiative to promote the site and its surroundings by backing young artists.

In cooperation with the faculty of fine art at the UPV/EHU (the University of the Basque Country), proposals were invited for murals to decorate the outside of the access ways to the bridge.  The proposal chosen was that by Pablo Zabala, in which the author set out to express the “shadowy night-time atmosphere” of the estuary landscape where the sea merged with the steelworks and shipyards.
