Under the concept Diagrama de Venn (Venn diagram) is constructed the exhibition of the same name hosted by the Mustang Art Gallery of Elche (Spain). The Venn diagram is a graphic explanation which represents the intersection of overlapping concepts. Three artistic identities (Carton Lab, Rosh and Erre Gálvez) each present their work interwoven with these of the others, thus generating a complete, consistent multimedia image.
The Alicante resident Rosh is responsible for carrying out the second operation. His work is presented under the name Peeping Tom, referring to a character of the legend of Lady Godiva: the tailor voyeur who went blind because he was always looking through a hole. A composition of concentric circles fills the space, reminding of a watchful eye. The color, in the typical the style of Rosh, expands through the exhibition space invading Carton Lab, in a potent superposition of works as suggested by the Diagrama de Venn.

‘Sant Jordi’ (St. George) is the patron of the city of Barcelona. The legend from the 11th century tells the tale of how Saint George liberated a town from a dragon by killing it on the same day that the princess was supposed to be sacrificed as an offering. The popular version says that a rosebush grew out rom the blood of the dragon. This is why on the 23rd of April in the christian calendar couples and people in love give away rose to each other. This day is also the International World Book Day, and according to the customs in Barcelona you should give a book back to the one who gave you a rose.
As we have announced earlier, Montana Shop Barcelona celebrated ‘Sant Jordi’, as it is named here in Spain, in a quite special way. Together with the selling of books and roses, Sawe gave his touch to legend of Saint George with a hand made Face-In-Hole board of the knight together with a funny dragon-vandal. A bunch of great photos was made of the people who passed by there yesterday to convert into being a knight for second.
Remember that Montana Shop devotes the whole week to editorial culture. Until Saturday you can find interesting bargains on graffiti and street art books with discounts between 10 and 20%.
The worlds of skating and graffiti does not necessarily have to coincide, but many times they two cultures share spaces. This is the case in this video made by Fullcolor where ZARB, SION, RES, SMO, SCANER, LEK and DEM goes to empty their cans in the Bordeaux skatepark. Thomas Lemarchand has edited this great clip of 100% street culture, and his result is top quality.
