One more year, Drap-Art, the International Festival of Sustainable Art of Catalonia, returns, and this year, more than ever, it will be a different festival. For the first time in its 24-year history, the festival will distribute its exhibitions in different locations, all in the Gothic quarter of Barcelona.

Fousion Gallery Barcelona proposes a fine selection of art and performance out of the wolds of a sustainable context in this years edition of the established Drap Art Festival 2020.

It is a pleasure to invite you to the opening of the exhibition, the performance and installations we have planed, like the performances of Karla Kracht at the12th of December at 6 pm.

The main exhibition with the artists selected from the call of artists, Drap-Art’s special guests and artists of the N2 Gallery will be located in the emblematic building of the Borsí, the old Llotja, school of Arts and Crafts on Avinyó street, about to be recovered as the headquarters of the municipal neighbourhood library and a Sociocultural Community Center, thanks to the pressure of the neighbourhood Platform El Borsí per al Barri. It will be a very good opportunity to see it as it is before the rehabilitation work begins.

"Ghost in the Wall" by Karla Kracht
13. December 2020 – 5. January 2021
Capilla – Reial Cercle Artístic

A magical sequence of weird occurrences. Rotating platforms, comic-like objects and characters, loops, sound scape and moving shadows are combined to create a magic experience and letting the viewer dive into the improbable world of ghostly-dark and frightening-dreamy coincidences, where all seems connected and everything and nothing seems possible.

The shadows of the past. The shadows of the present. Our own shadows melting with those of the others.
The ghosts of our own fears... a chaos of interwoven situations...

An performance about the non quantifiable, about very old inner fears and outer projections of common panics.

 

 "STREETlights" by René van Doorn
11. December 2020 – 5. January 2021
Capilla – Reial Cercle Artístic

STREETlights: indoor lighting from used streetlights 

In the Netherlands slowly all streetlights are being replaced for LED lights. The old luminaires usually disappear into the landfill. This inspired Dutch designers Esther Derkx and René van Doorn to gather the different shapes of streetlights to transform them to sustainable indoor lighting. The STREETlights are being assembled into new shapes, polished or painted in colour without erasing the traces from the past.

Artworks

Artists

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.

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.

Miss Van

Miss Van started wall-painting with brushes on the walls of Toulouse in the 90’s and quickly expanded her work throughout Europe (with Barcelona as her home city), influencing the feminine movement in European Urban Art. She is now considered among the most established international urban contemporary female artists. 

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.

Julia Benz

Julia Benz, born in 1988, is a German painter and mural artist. Benz studied painting in Düsseldorf and Berlin where she continues to live and work. Julia Benz has partaken in numerous urban muralism projects and collaborated with central figures of the street art movement. Her studio work consequently incorporates traces of urban canvas techniques and sensibilities, and thus has been exhibited in galleries affiliated to the urban art scene and in international contemporary art contexts alike. While many of her contemporaries aim to transgress toward the traditions of modern painting from an urban art background, Benz departs in the opposite direction.

Mateus Bailon

Inspired by myths, worldly folklore and the complex simplicity of the human mind, the work of Mateus Bailon explores narratives. It seeks to recall the connection between the human being and nature attempting to understand the mysterious part of people’s personal universes.

elDimitry

Born in Palencia with P. Since he was a little Boy at school, whatever the class was about, elDimitry always used to do the same, creating little paintings in his notebooks, tables, pants, walls… and without stopping to scribble – and paying attention to other painters – he started to travel. From Palencia to Valladolid, where he studied Illustration.

Juliah Humpfer

The Stuttgart based artist Juliah Humpfer studied communication design and works as a free Illustrator. In her clear graphic works, founded fantastic creatures meet organic forms full of distinctive patterns and structures.The motifs are inspired by literature and music, the images are deliberately devoid of any critical seriousness, rather forming a playful space and invite to be filled from t
