May Day Art Print featuring the digital art May Day Fair In Sevilla, Spain by Tatiana Travelways

This is a digital paint of an original photograph I took on the 1st of May, while we were traveling in Seville, Spain

 

Yes, there is a tradition in Europe to celebrate the first day of May as the International Worker’s Day (also known as May Day).

 

May Day

 

If you live in Europe you certainly know about this, but you may not know that this is actually coming from the USA… On the other hand, Labour Day in North America (USA and Canada) is celebrated on the first Monday in September.

 

As I’m originally coming from Eastern Europe (one of the former socialist countries), I used to know this as a celebration of the “International Solidarity of Workers”. Since we didn’t have access to much information about the outside world, I thoroughly thought it was happening only there, as a communism type of things… 🙂

 

Living in Canada for many years I had completely forgotten about this.

 

My Day celebration in Seville, Spain

 

I was extremely surprised to see it happening in Seville, when I visited Spain.

 

My first reaction was of amazement: people of all ages were happily participating in it without being obliged to do it … I smiled 🙂

 

Most of the people where dressed in traditional costumes; and the women were wearing the famous Flamenco dresses on all colors. – How beautiful!

 

In the streets of Seville we could see the well known Andalusian horses. Ornamented with flowers they were pulling classic chariots with people going to the fair…

They looked so picturesque, that I decided to digitally paint the image 🙂
