Artworks

Artists

Alberto de Blobs

Alberto de Blobs, born in 1982 started his career as a painter at the young age of 12, writing graffiti in Barcelona. From wild style letter painting, his style gradually evolved towards today's elaborate mixture of figurative and free form abstraction. With its open muralist approach, de Blobs' highly illustrative visual language combines references to his subcultural roots and art historical predecessors alike and with ease. Merging all types of influences, genres and styles, Blobs forged a brilliant outlook on creativity which is presented through his search for new experiences. This newly-made reality escapes all conventions and breaks free from links to any particular aesthetic trend.

Mono Cieza

From transcendence to fusion – Mono Cieza was Born in Argentina and lives in Barcelona since 2001. He studied composition at the Faculty of Fine Arts of La Plata (Argentina), released  music for films.

Raventos

One of the principal inspirations of Gabriel Pérez Raventós is the adventure of finding objects, mix them and think about what he will be turning them into. He does not work with a preconceived idea, it is the materials that he has that activate his creative spirit.

SheOne

Born in London in 1969, James began to write Graffiti in 1984. A decade later he had formalised the concept of spraypaint as 
the primary medium of expression and was beginning to personalise his alter-ego signature as the gestural cage for contextual subject.

David De La Mano

David de la Mano was born in Salamanca in 1975, where he graduated in Fine Arts before focussing on Public Art for his PhD at the University of Valencia.

From 1993 onward, De La Mano has worked extensively in urban public space, and developed his trademark style during numerous international projects.

Richard Hambleton – Shadowman

With his pioneering unauthorized public painting projects, most notably the expressive, menacing ‘Shadowmen’, Canadian born Richard Hambleton was one of the most significant participants in the early street art movement of the 1970’s and -80’s. While the largest portion of his iconic street works have survived only in photographic documentation, Bowery Iron District Door carries a painted original.

Sibylle Jazra

The arworks by Sibylle Jazra are pervaded with references of art ­history. Sometimes in an ironic way, other times, subtly disturbed. The versatile artist plays with artistic references with a sharp but, at the same time, light humoristic tone that is not directly disrupt by iconographical burdens. 

Dunja Jankovic

Originally a comic artist, Dunja Janković' experimentations have led her to create site specific compositions on the walls of the city, on abandoned buildings, and, most importantly, on and with other people’s graffiti. On other people's work as well as on her own, she starts to parasitize, adding layers and by covering she 'discovers' a new image – 'Collaboration without Consent'.
