DISPLACEMENTS: URBAN ART EXHIBITION. COAM, Madrid 2017
Even if it is painted or drawn, a work of urban art is neither painting nor drawing: it is, above all, work with a context. The material is the city itself. The result has to do with the where, the how and the when, as much or more than with the what".
I propose a tour of urban art in different cities, selecting a series of interventions, according to criteria, for me, of emotion (the decorative part of urban art influenced by Klimt). Coincidentally, they are signed works by recognised authors, which contradicts their essence. The works have a specific physical scale, which interacts indirectly with the environment and with the spectator.
The cities visited are Berlin, Paris, NY and Madrid. In each of these urban centres the way of occupying a surface is different.
La bicicleta y a veces la moto, se transforma en un sello personal a modo de símbolo. Recorre todos estos lugares y ejerce de nexo de unión entre ellos.
Este proyecto se expuso en la sala Mercadal del COAM (Colegio Oficial de Arquitectos de Madrid)
Emerging artists' proposals
I invite emerging artists to intervene in my work, making an urban art proposal. I paint the same painting twice and let them perform in one of them.
The boundaries between urban art and façade decoration are questioned. Is urban art the façade decoration of the 21st century?
