WHY SHOULD YOU SEE DIRTY’S NEW EXPO?

“It’s a small world.” Or “Describe your corner of the globe and you describe the whole world.” We have heard such phrases many times and this article fulfills these two maxims. This month at Montana Gallery Barcelona you can catch an exhibit with work from the artist, Dirty, from L'Hospitalet de Llobregat. As our mission is to make our corner known - as we try to expand it - we leave you with a brief interview to get to know a little better the background, the concerns, and the message of some of the paintings that you can see until [...]

SKEME TMT, FROM STYLE WARS TO TODAY: “MY COMEBACK IS MONUMENTAL”

As part of our series of interviews of pioneers and old school writers who have made breakthroughs in the history of graffiti, it is our pleasure to interview Skeme, TMT. The style and images of this writer, both in Style Wars and Subway Art, already belong to the imagination of many writers around the world. The scene where he talks to his mother in the kitchens connected all of us graffiti writers regardless of times or nationalities. Even if you haven’t seen the movie. His scenes, along with the famous “this is it, this is it,” live rent-free in our [...]

WHAT YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THE GRAFFITI SCENE IN TUNISIA

MTN has been on the global scene for 30 years, supplying paint and helping to create a scene in many cities around the world. We realise that some of these scenes are not well known overall, and for this reason we would like to do our bit -once again- to help them extend their reach. Today, thanks to Jaye, a French-Tunisian writer, and Hatira, MTN's distributor in Tunisia, we can appreciate the graffiti of the African country, understand its development a little bit more and admire the talents that push graffiti forward every day. Alright, who is Jaye? He is [...]

TOP SECRET: ESTOY87’S HIDDEN PIECES IN THE BCN SUBWAY SYSTEM

When we talk about graffiti on the subway, all those images of convoys painted in the dark immediately come to mind; photos with a dreamy atmosphere and even the adrenaline that writers give off while painting on the platform with the trains running. However, this selection leaves aside, for the most part, all those writers who paint not on the moving metal but on the subway facilities themselves. Estoy 87, whom we interviewed a couple of years ago, is no longer a child. He doesn't seek fame or confrontation. The only thing he looks for are those corners within the [...]

DHL TRUCKS: “IF IT DOESN’T HAVE STYLE, IT’S NOT THE REAL THING!”

If your algorithm lets you, you may have seen recently on Instagram a series of trucks from the company DHL with wonderful heat-sealed pieces on them. We usually discuss the magic of graffiti in motion when it comes to trains; the top of the podium for graffiti writers. But beware, getting seen is one of the maxims of this culture, and these painted trucks embody and convey that message perfectly and at right on time. So, we are happy to be able to say: "We have a package for you." There is no clearer example that you are in a [...]

“SAEIO 2009-2014” THE MOST ANTICIPATED REISSUE OF 2023

Graffiti is aging and is now part of the domain of art history. Books on graffiti, or specific graffiti artists, are increasingly numerous, but only some of them become cult publications, "must-haves" in a collection. In 2023, we saw the release of gems like Bando’s Black Book, but very few reeditions of important books that have become rare or too inaccessible. It’s the case with the monograph "Saeio 2009-2014," which unfortunately had been out of reach for a few years. "Saeio's work extended beyond the street; he was a multidisciplinary artist who also expressed himself through video, poetry, and performance. [...]

MUCH MORE THAN REALITY, AN INTERVIEW WITH ZURDO CARIBE

Undoubtedly, Zurdo's exhibition at the Montana Gallery was a long-awaited event, among other things, because of the curiosity that his pictorial work -probably the lesser known side of his creative work- arouses. His canvases -windows to Zurdo's complex reality that mixes graffiti, feelings, society, politics and art to offer an aesthetic experience that hides an infinite number of coded messages- will be up until March. We caught up with him and he assisted us in understanding that decoding process… The exhibition "Nada más que realidad" by Zurdo Caribe will remain open at Montana Gallery Barcelona until 22 March. "There is [...]

JAY ONE, A PIOONER MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE

Not long ago we were able to meet -remotely- with Bando, a mainstay of European graffiti, and get a glimpse of his way of thinking when it comes to graffiti. We have taken a liking to visiting the writers who laid the foundations of graffiti in Europe, and who in one way or another helped to shape the culture. This time, the words are from Jay One, one of the members of BBC (Bad Boy Crew). Jay One, besides being a graffiti writer and multidisciplinary artist, is an expert in post 21st century black music, and a fine connoisseur of [...]

Una breve historia del streetwear

El término streetwear es un lugar común en el mundo de la moda actual. Se utiliza para describir ropa de alta calidad que atrae la influencia de su entorno. Estas influencias suelen ser de "la calle" absorbiendo todo lo que les rodea, como los grafitis y al igual que los grafitis que a veces expresan cuestiones políticas y sociales del aquí y ahora.Entonces, ¿dónde y cuándo se originó el streetwear? Mucha gente especula sobre el cuándo y el cómo de los orígenes de los estilos, pero está claro que comenzó a finales de la década de 1970 y principios de [...]

Banksy Canvas

La influencia del artista callejero y de graffiti Banksy en Bristol y el Reino Unido no se puede negar. Su carrera comenzó en Bristol durante la década de 1980 como parte del boom de los aerosoles que fue testigo de muchos artistas callejeros como él y otros, junto con músicos que trabajaban en una serie de proyectos. Después de un tiempo, Banksy logró desarrollar una técnica única que combinaba la escritura de graffiti y el estarcido, una técnica que se dice que fue popularizada por Blek le Rat. Con esta técnica de marca registrada, se hizo más popular debido a [...]
