HDA is a group of friends brought together by graffiti. “Hartos de Arte” (Sick of Art) was born after the 2000 effect, and today in the era of the 2012 apocalypse they are together to show some of their recent pieces. This will be their first show in Barcelona after many years of activity on the street and in their murals, and who knows if it’ll be their last. United for the cause are Ring, Kans, Sperm, Zire, Gnyo, Inos, Seny, Apes, Erakles and Spit; as well as some of their members in Paris, 3615, Turbo, and Povre; and Resto, in Gent, Belgium.
After scattered beginnings, the bonds between the group members grew with each signature, throw up, piece of graffiti, and special moment with people from different corners of the world, such as Buenos Aires, Paris, Madrid, Sweden, Japan, Brazil, Ireland…
It’s all based around the painting; the action on the street, the journeys, the long nights, and the short ones too. HDA is a way of life, and a way to have fun. It’s not a question of style, HDA IS the style. It’s about sharing experiences, murals, colors, crazy characters, throw ups, and drips. It’s about a certain ironic take on life, and a choice to swim against the current. It’s an excuse to travel the world, and paint it while doing so.
On this occasion, the Hartos are back together for a special event in Montana Café next Saturday the 14th of January from 7.30pm, when they’ll present some of their works, photos, videos… with the priceless collaboration of La Pegatinería and Dj Raff on the wheels of steel!
