Artworks

Artists

Bruno Pontiroli

Bruno Pontiroli creates mind-bending explorations of the relationship between humans and animals. From his dreamlike visions, he conjures up surreal and fantastic universes, where centaurs cut off the head of half-human half-horse creatures, over-eager men can embrace large walrus or jump on twisted giraffes and dromedaries fit their cubic-shaped humps into each other. A poetic and absurd ability to make the impossible happen, while an hippopotamus is standing on his tong...

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.

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. 

Will Barras

Will Barras, born in 1973, is a British animation designer and painter. While studying graphic design in the 1990's, Barras became aware and subsequently part of the flourishing Bristol street-art scene and co-founded the influential Scrawl collective.

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.

Peca

Outer circle and inner space – Peca was born in Argentina and graduated from the University of Fine Arts in the city of La Plata (UNLP). She paints, illustrates and animates films in Barcelona for more than a decade. Since a while, she’s dedicating her creative energy exclusively to painting and shows her mystical universe at solo and group shows in many international reknown galleries.
