In April the Museum of Fine Arts of Murcia (Mubam) in Southeastern Spain mounted an exhibition gathering 85 artists from 23 countries entitled ‘Urban Art: from the street to the museum’. Among the artists include Blek Le Rat, Blade, Cope2, Shepard Fairey, Vinz, Vhils, London Police, Futura, JonOne, Bordalo II, Dran, even Cornbread – who is credited by many as having lit the fire under graffiti in Philadelphia in the late 1960s.

Outside, where this scene originated, the museum also created an exhibition of many current practitioners in the areas of graffiti, Street Art, and mural making in different locations in the city of Murcia – including names like Kobra, L7M, Callizo, Lily Brik, and Dale Grimshaw.

Here are a few examples of new works in the streets for the Murcia Street Art Project as captured by photographer Lluis Olive Bulbena especially for BSA readers.
