Lanzarote had a celebrated artist, Cesar Manrique.  As well as painting and sculpture, Manrique blended art and nature with architecture.  He lived in a house built around huge bubbles in the lava.  He shaped the lava bubbles into the rooms of his house, even managing to fit a swimming pool into one.
Why paint a picture when you just need to cut a hole in the wall?
Manrique was into found object art as well.
