Francisco Bravo Cabrera Exhibition in Valencia


Francisco Bravo Cabrera, A.K.A. BODO VESPACIANO, was chosen by his treasured City of Valencia for a prestigious exhibition.  This is a highly sought-after and esteemed art show in the third largest city in Spain.   He will be exhibiting JaZzArt.  The showcase will include Expressionism, Surrealism, and the official showing of the new art form Francisco developed, called the Euro-Ku.  To learn more about this remarkable, multi-talented, and visionary artist, please visit the link below, written by his proficient representative, Gül.  The article she wrote accompanies a selection of Francisco’s work.  “The Edge of Humanity”

We worked with Gül about the pieces we purchased and a commissioned piece, which you can see and read about in the link below.  Working with Gül was a blessing as she was so instrumental and astute in the process.  Francisco took a lot of time talking with us about the commissioned piece.

On a personal note, we have become friends with Francisco and Gül.  As successful as Francisco has become from his diverse styles of painting, poetry, and music he remains humble, gracious, and faithful.  Each original comes with its own Certificate of Authenticity and is signed by Francisco and dated.

Francisco was great-hearted to collaborate with me on the artwork for my upcoming full-length book of poetry.  He was also kind enough to gift the pieces to us.  I am excited to announce that I have signed a contract to be published by Prolific Pulse Press LLC, in June of 2024.    

These are original paintings from my own collection. Francisco Bravo Cabrera owns the right to continue reproducing these paintings and selling them as prints. However no one can use the photos on this post without permission from Francisco or myself for the purpose of making money.

    1. Dearest Tim, you spend a great deal of time promoting and reposting other people’s work. You are one of the people who has helped me to get the recognition I have received. I feel like I owe you a lot, and I cannot express my appreciation, but to say that, your comments and reading my work has meant the world to me. Sending love and hugs always, Joni. ❤️

  3. Wonderful news from both you and Francisco, Joni! I’m so excited. Congratulations! I would like to review your book. Email me.

    1. Thank you so much for reading and your gracious comment. My book will be released in June of next year. The book is fully written, but Prolific Pulse Press is a very busy publishing house and that is the scheduling date when they were first available. I appreciate your willingness to write a review when the book comes out and I will let you know. Hope you have a blessed week, with love and hugs, Joni. ❤️

  4. Kudos to both you and Francisco. It’s refreshing to see good things happening to good people. Best of luck to Francisco on his upcoming exhibit, and also to you, Joni, on your book project. Exciting times, indeed. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Mike for reading this post and your very appreciated words. Francisco has been studying art and working his technique for so many years and his work is absolutely gorgeous. I am so excited and also want only the best for all the people on different venues who work hard to do well. I have wanted to write a book since I was seven and was sending snail mail letters to publishing companies back then. Prolific Pulse Press is finally fulfilling that dream for me and I’m very grateful to them for giving me the opportunity. I’m excited to have a date of June 2024 for the book to be published. Collaborating with Francisco and his art has been such a blessing to me and I wish him all the best on his upcoming exhibition. Great big hugs Mike. ❤️

    1. Thank you so much, Dawn, it almost seems unreal that I have everything lined up for the book to come out next June. It is such an honor for me that Francisco was willing to collaborate with me on this book. It was such a blessing to have this honor bestowed on him in his beloved city of Valencia, I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving. I’m also very grateful to Prolific Pulse Press, and Lisa Tomey. Sending love and hugs, Joni. ❤️

  5. Thank you so much for sharing and how exciting his paintings will be in your book…and Congratulations on your upcoming publication of your collection of poetry…I can’t wait. I’m so happy for you Joni!! 🤗

    1. Thank you, Kari, for your comment, which I know is from deep within your heart, and thank you for your continued love and support. I’m also excited and honored to have Francisco collaborate with me on this publication. It is such an honor to have an event like this happen in your beloved City, and we wish we could be there to support him in person, but he has lots of loving friends. Looking forward to visiting your site and seeing how your weekend went with your friend. Sending love and hugs to my dear friend, Joni ❤️❤️

    1. Thank you so much Cindy it means a lot to me. No one will hear anything else till the month of June of next year when it is due to be released. Prolific Pulse Press publishes a lot of writers that are really talented. I was so excited when Francisco agreed to do the artwork for the book. He also gifted his work. Although I will own the originals, he will still be the only one that has the right to print, show or do anything he wants with that art. The book is finished, and the artwork looks amazing, Francisco is having the most wonderful honor that his city, Valencia could bestow on him. I have enjoyed my collection of his work so much. We worried about hurting the paintings, more than anything else when we moved. They are really special to us. Thank you so much for your very kind words, Cindy, and for sharing again, the pictures of your beautiful new family members. I hope you can get a chance to enjoy them often. Love, hugs, and blessings.

      1. Well, I’ll look forward to it and I’m so delighted as you introduced me to his amazing work. Both of you so talented, it will be a huge hit I’m certain. Glad your paintings made it safe. It’s a pleasure to support yoiu always. Thanks for your heartfelt💖 wishes as well.. xo

    1. Dearest Anna, you have been such a kind friend. I always think about people that I love during the holidays. I truly hope that your extended family is doing much better. Sending you lots of love, hugs, and my prayers always. Love, Joni.

    1. He really is amazing. His work has a lot of metaphorical meaning. You will notice all the crosses on his work. We both feel in love with his work and purchased a few pieces and did one commissioned piece. We were so pleased, his representative Gül is also very knowledgeable and helpful. This was a special treat for us both. Big hugs Mich. 🙏🌹

  6. This has made my day! I am so honored to view the pieces you shared & I will read more about this gifted artist & beautiful human. Joni I am delighted for you on this well earned achievement that is your gifted talent. I am so happy about all of this news. Much love my friend

    1. Yes I have the most amazing respect for this unbelievable artist. He is amazing and I love his work. His exhibition was such a wonderful success. He is famous! Sending big love and hugs, Joni and prayers
