Until the 2nd of March the SC Gallery in Bilbao will host a group exhibition titled ‘No + de 30′, where we will see Aryz, Axel Void and Sebas Velasco sharing the space of the walls. Three very “on point” artists who’s work can be directly related to urban art, both in its aesthetics as in its conceptuality, and presented in the same exhibition they really create a appetizing product.
Crews: DC5, ATT
Active since: 1997
Favorite Surfaces: Metal and any unconventional surface.
Personal motivation: To push styles and lettering, but mostly to continue having fun throughout the years. Whether I paint simple or intricate pieces, the purpose is to enjoy what I do. That’s the reason we all started in the first place, and when we forget to have fun, the letters show.

The day (which hopefully never comes) that this practice disappears, the most fierce fans of this culture will reminisce with nostalgia the days when the painted trains filled the lines with its spontaneous decorations. Meanwhile lets check out this compilation of summertime productions in traffic from the city of Ghent. Sit back and relax…

‘Parallel Realities’ show explores the representation of the transition between different realities through the passage from one pictured perspective to another inside the same canvas. The described realities exist parallely: the observation of one from a proper point of view exclude the existence of the other at the same time, and vice versa. (more…)
