Fousion Gallery is pleased to present a compilation of its latest art pieces at Urvanity Art 2021.
The International Art Fair dedicated to the New Contemporary Art movements arrives once more in Madrid in its 5th edition. It brings together more than 25 international art galleries at COAM (Colegio Oficial Arquitectos de Madrid), a unique space right at the center of the Spanish capital, at Chueca district, well known due to its cosmopolitan, vivid and vibrant ambiance; the perfect location for a very particular exhibit where artistic movements born in urban contexts are the protagonists.

We are delighted to physically invite you to Urvanity Art 2021 for you to finally un-virtualize the worlds of Pop Surrealism and Urban Art. After a long time in tumultuous global circumstances, we are finally able to present to the public the latest works by 10 artists represented by Fousion Gallery at a life Art Fair in a fine selection of fresh, astounding works.

At booth 22 at Urvanity Art 2021 you will sneak onto the cosmic enigmas inhabited by mystical omens from Peca and the inner worlds located in a distant-logic universe created by Bruno Pontiroli. You will meet hybrid creatures from a different time in a hereafter past materialized by Mono Cieza and be able to perceive the captivating secrets of Miss Van’s sensual muses and the inner reflections of the creatures from the arid landscapes of Dilka Bear while Victor Castillo’s merry-go-round relocates you to his childhood dreams … or nightmares. 

From the abstracted figures in decomposed landscapes from Alberto de Blobs to Phil Aschcroft’s sharp and harsh compositions to the misty, evoking abstract graffiti by O.Two contrasted with the abstract figuration of Will Barras, sometimes contraposed even in the same canvas in collaborative work.

Artworks

Artists

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. 

Peca

The 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. For a while, she’s dedicating her creative energy exclusively to painting and shows her mystical universe at solo and group shows in many international renown galleries.

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.

Victor Castillo

Victor Castillo tells stories in his paintings. As if it were a contemporary chronicle, his work appropriates the narrative logic of illustrations for children’s stories, and the aesthetics of classic animations, to present us with allegories about cruelty, fear, rebellion, greed, indoctrination, violence, and other abuses of power that the artist sees being imposed worldwide.

Phil Ashcroft

Phil Ashcroft’s specific form of gestural, emotive abstraction combines flattened out 1980s style art deco and graffiti influences with references to American abstraction which often threaten to overwhelm the upper sections of his canvases.

Dilka Bear

Those eyes that mirror the world – Dilka Bear, born 1977 in Almaty, Kazakhstan, is an Italian-based artist, illustrator and painter. She studied Architecture at the Almaty University of Arts, in Kazakhstan. 

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.

O.Two

O.Two – real name James Carey – born in 1979, lives and works in London. A member of Wizard Kings artist collective, Carey takes his graffiti heritage as a starting point of progressive explorations. Teenage delinquency is transformed and refined into a Post Graffiti texture of abstract gestures, but never disclaimed.

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.
