This weekend, from Friday 24th to Sunday 26th of February, an event without comparison will be held in Madrid in relation to the Spanish urban arts scene.
Urvanity is the first international art fair held in Spain which is exclusively dedicated to contemporary urban art. As much as 18 specialized international galleries will lend their hand to this alternative to what is presented during “Semana de Arte” (art week) which is held at the same time in the Spanish capital.

We’re signing off the Sabek experience at Swinton Gallery with this video that takes us straight to the inauguration of his exhibition which was the first solo show by the artist. It was a well attended event that once again brought a personal oeuvre generated on the walls of the streets to the ones in the space.
At the end of last year Sabek presented his exhibition at Swinton & Grant. As per usual, and as we’ve noted in previous cases, the Madrid gallery programmed a mural in the center of the city. Above we have a video that documents Sabek’s mixed technique intervention.
Of course, we couldn’t complete the article without showing some photos of the inaugural event.

That’s where you could find the Montana Shop Madrid stand, who’s team was in good company with the artists who came along for the ride such as Gatotonto, Aleix Gordo, Saturno, Diego Gonzalez and Jedis Tobogang.
