Black Box flew to Madrid for the fifth edition of Urvanity Art!
Thanks to the collaboration of the ART 3035 GALLERY of Amsterdam by Andrea Deiana and the gallery manager Ginevra Russo, Black Box was able to visit and enjoy this outstanding Contemporary Art Exhibition in which all the artistic expressions and ideas developed under the influence of urban environments from the 70s to present days.
Post-graffiti, surrealist pop, contemporary urban, new pop art and public art murals around the city all collide in one unique experience.
In two days, we have witnessed and learnt how the languages, themes and symbols of Urban environment influence contemporary art and, in powerful and different ways, how it gives us back all the shades of the multiple realities that surround us every day.
Here are some of the most emblematic artists and their works.
Among the most emblematic works we certainly find “NIKE AIR MAX 90”.
Catapulted into a futuristic archaeological museum, Merzouk presents fossilized objects from everyday life: the trace of our civilization could not be but other than a Nike sneaker.
His language is fearless: hyper realism with street art influences reinterpreted with a conceptual art approach make his irreverent works. The objective is to comment on current affairs through its cynical “paradise objects“.
Relying on noble materials such as marble and semi-precious stones according to the ancient techniques of Florentine sculpture, Quiñones reworks iconic objects of urban contemporaneity and streetlife.
Streetwear logos, broswer tabs, drinks and political symbols are the fundamental elements of Romero’s compositions, which he uses as a bridge to talk about more complex realities, in which street art becomes the maximum expression of freedom.
It focuses on the observation of reality in urban space. The visual associations of the peeling plaster patterns of the city walls and the easily identifiable markings such as shoe soles (VANS) help create relationships between the things that surround us.
The SOLO Limited booth is an invitation to promote, share and support international contemporary art. A space presented by “Collection SOLO” to encourage the desire to collect exclusive, unique and limited edition works of art.
