Since I was a young child I’d take my parents to places where there was graffiti so I could see it, and a while later an older friend of mine started to paint and we began to do stuff. Over time it’s become something necessary in my life that I like and enjoy unlike anything else. It’s given me some of the most special people I know, trips, I don’t know… a ball that I feel will never stop rolling because it brings me so much joy. (more…)
If you’ve paid any attention lately to Pro176‘s social networks, you would have noticed his wholehearted and constant work dedicated to canvas painting. But that’s not to say he put walls aside. So far this year, this master of gothic futurism has already forged three walls with that extravagant color and technique that characterizes his graffiti. Both three pieces made together with his style partners Nomad and Bios.
Just less than a weeks time in Barcelona was enough for Lost.Optics to collaborate on a wall with names as varied as Spogo, Emak, Harry Bones and Zurik. We’ve got the full report here of the peculiar productions he left around the city. His geometric style seems to be getting more and more aesthetically similar to suprematism.
Spraydaily has set their sights close to home once again. The HDA member, Apes, presents an exclusive selection of photos and answers the questions for the “Hello My Name Is” section, and as usual, we’re bringing you the recap.
“I always expected not to paint anymore with my age when I was younger. Sometimes I feel it’s like a drug, sometimes new ideas in my mind make me do it.“
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.
By taking over various publicity spots, Salamech has executed a series of public interventions in the city of Barcelona. By changing the original publicity posters into his own works the artist from Montpellier grants the pedestrians with a series of street canvases where we find a blend of expressive color portraits mixed with his humorous lettering. This is a new stage for Salamech who has drifted away from his classic graffiti to create a new form of dialogue with the streets and its rules. The was made by Finocchiaro Anthony.
