SpY from Madrid

SpY is a street artist from Madrid whose started in the 1980’s doing graffiti.   Since then he’s been exploring other forms of artistic communication in the street. His work involves appropriating urban elements through transformation or replication, commentary on urban reality, and the interference of its’ communicative codes.

To us, this one looks like a giant tag, rather than street art, per se (whatever that means).  But the video is pretty cool.

Most of his work comes from observing the city and an appreciating its components, not as inert elements but as a palette of materials overflowing with possibilities. Balancing irony and positive humor, he wants his work to cause a smile, incite reflection, and to perhaps even raise consciousness.
