    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.

    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.

  • ÚS BARCELONA 2016 RECAP

    If ÚsBarcelona can be described as an “art ritual in public space” it’s because this year it is much more than a street art festival. After having celebrated two editions, the proposal has been extending its roots to a much more broadened artistic perspective. Although muralism is a fundamental component and the foundation for the project, it’s just a fragment of the festival’s stimulating creative selection.

    Basing itself off the appropriation of public space for artistic creation and art as a dynamic and dignifying element in the urban sphere, Ús has consolidated itself as a vanguard platform for presenting new formats, trends, and artistic proposals at street level. It’s tough to summarize all that transpired in this past edition with a video and some images but we’re going to make an attempt.

    In 2013 the director Kuba Goździewicz embarked on a tour with the artists, Jaypop, Seikon and Krik Kong, passing through towns and small cities in Poland. The result are these recordings from the months of work, the thousands of kilometers travelled, and the dozens of villages that were visited.

    The three artists discovered forgotten places that were full of contrasts, and they bumped into people like SC Szyman, Gregor Gonsior and Mrufig. Filmed between 2013 and 2015 and launched this year at a premiere, it’s now available for public viewing on Youtube.
