Pepe Benavente’s voice singing Kill me, Andresito’s favorite song, put the end to an act full of emotion both from the family of the honoree, as well as from an entire town that knew how special Andrés Domiguéz Baute Andresito was, and how lucky his neighbors were to meet him . Yesterday, the Santa Cruz City Council, through the initiative of the El Pescador Neighbors Association, and the collaboration of the la Caixa Foundation presented the giant mural in tribute to Andresito, who died at 56 years of age in December 2019.
The artistic work, made by Sabotage to the Mount, reproduces a photograph of the honoree used by the artist Toto Morín, in his project Rostropolis. The mural was painted on a wall more than 11 meters high and almost six meters wide, for which Matías Matas needed four days, from September 27 to 30.
The presentation of the giant mural, located on Calle La Torre, was chaired by Mayor José Manuel Bermúdez, who was accompanied by the director of the Caixabank business area, Jesús Álvarez; representatives of El Pescador, as well as relatives and friends of the honoree. The councilor of the Anaga district, Inmaculada Fuentes, and the CEO of the Development Society, Alfonso Cabello, were also present.
The councilor, in his speech, was very happy for the mural, since, “from now on, Andresito will remain not only his memory, but also the image of his goodness and his charisma in this central corner of the town of San Andrés, His town”.
