We live in an era in which information has an ever growing presence and influence, and each person makes their decisions based on certain characteristics.
Everything has an inherent value that attracts the specific nature of those who want to look at it. It’s like an investigation whose purpose is centered on the unity and relationship between the real and the imaginary, the new and the old, the avant-garde and the traditional, and graffiti and classic painting. Through this encounter, everything acquires a new meaning in the world of painting; one that is different from what it would be if it was situated in the real world. It is an investigation about the specific characteristics and states of people or goods.
The Turkish platform, 232 Artworks was summoned for a decoration project at the Akçaova Institute in the Kocaeli province. The idea of improving the visual aspect of these types of buildings’ standard architecture came from the Erasmus+ project with assistance from the Turkish National Agency. The initiative aims to stimulate the students by means of an aesthetic change.
We where asking ourselves who would be fit to close up the Genesis project, and now we can present Txemy. This Canarian artist lives in Barcelona since many years and his energetic and colorful style will now star the last edition of the event which will round up a full year of interventions at the Metric Market in Barcelona.
“El Descanso” means rest, as in relaxation, and this is the theme which will approach the project with a interactive urban arts installation together with three painted murals, projections and even a expo. There is no doubt about that the ground floor of this restaurant on the Diagonal avenue will be sparkling in color and full of good vibrations… I would not miss it…
Remember, tomorrow wednesday 1st of February from 19h.
Already a few decades ago, graffiti had become a global movement that was practiced all over the world. However, sometimes it’s worth going over this complicated process that functioned differently in each geographical region. With the hopes to shed light on the history of Domincan Republican graffiti, the “Marcando Territorio” documentary was born; 14 minutes of footage that help us in understanding the movement in this Caribbean country. Upon viewing, it’s interesting to compare the similarities and underline the differences of the phenomenon with respect to other places in the world.
Montana Colors Caribbean has sent us this interesting audiovisual piece that provides some textual insight on the content of this university project conducted by Victoria Cabrera Chelin and Camila Santana.
