Udane Paints Light and Color, A Guy and His Backpack, for Contorno Urbano

Posted on May 10, 2018

Udane Juaristi (Udatxo)

A painter. On the street. Capturing the figure with brush in hand, obligating the gaze, summoning the flesh and texture from the public space, making it personal and private.

Naturally, it is called “Llum y color” (Light and color) as these are the elusive qualities to capture by Udane in her urban practice, much like her studio practice. Beginning as an art student in Bilbao and Paris, she brings her interest in the urban flora and fauna to the large public wall – a reverse route of many a graffiti and Street Art practitioner perhaps.

Here in Barcelona for the 12 + 1 Project Udane is reflecting the movement of a character in this fleeting moment with an urban portrait in a loose stroke – an unknown guy on a sunny street, elusive and unlikely to be seen again.
