Man doesn’t live off just bread, and Unonueve doesn’t live off just walls…
These works were made in great detail, utilizing color, form, and textures as a means of expression. Complex creations in the line of work that is now characteristic to Unonueve, and that have been exhibited in Mexico D.F. (group show) as a closure to the Constructo festival held by Arca Mexico gallery.
The main idea of the exhibition is to convey messages that lead us to becoming more aware about the current situation that is occurring in different countries around the world. Messages that allude from the corruption by those who govern us, up to the damage that we ourselves cause to our mother earth.
What better way to convey these messages than through color, form, and textures in works that have a deeper meaning that can raise awareness.
On May 12th, the Cuixart Foundation celebrated it’s first edition of the award, ‘El Pinzell de Cuixart’, at CCCB in Barcelona. Four urban artists from Barcelona were honoured for their lengthy careers, commemorating the support that the painter, Modest Cuixart, has always offered to upcoming artists.
Fasim, Zosen, Jota Loca, and Kram: four representative names of different forms of graffiti and urban art. All of them have the Barcelona seal of approval and they have all received “brushes” at a family-like affair that was as casual as its protagonists.
During the awards ceremony, four enormous canvas’ painted by the artists were exhibited which make up a cube that has been specially designed for the traveling exhibition, ‘Art in Motion’, an event that will feature even more artists from different Spanish cities.
As well as some images from the awards ceremony, we’ve included a video of the cube’s painting process, courtesy of AV-Drop, who were responsible for the design of the structure.
