Only he who Loves, Flies

“Only he who Loves, Flies”



Orihuela artist Alejandro Caamaño’s genuine style can be admired in this mural that covers the facade and part of the porch of a house in the San Isidro district. The whole painting recreates Orihuela’s skyline and surroundings (the mountain, the river, the orchard). With blue tones and an area of intense yellow sunlight in the centre, it is a tribute to Miguel Hernández and his poem Flight.

Only he who loves, flies. But who loves enough
to be like the slightest and most fugitive bird?
It goes eastwards sinking, commanding hatred, all that
might have wanted to rise again, direct and alive
