BSA is in Barcelona right now and we are honored to collaborate with Fundacion Contorno Urbano and their project Mural Salut.
Working in conjunction with the municipality of Sant Feliu de Llobregat and Kaligrafics, Contorno Urbano put out an international call to all artists to enter a mural contest. With close to 300 applications submitted 12 finalists were chosen. Among the 12 finalists only one of the proposals will be selected to paint their project on the historic wall in the old city center in Sant Feliu.
Five jurors, including our own Jaime Rojo will have the difficult task to choose the winning proposal to be announced this Thursday, November 16th.
After the winner is announced all members of the jury will participate in a panel discussion to talk about the relevance of commissioned artworks within the context of Urban Art and the cities, the relevance of murals in today’s Urban Art environment and the different ways in which cities, artists and curators approach these commissions in Europe and in the United States.
In conjunction with the panel discussion urban artists Elisa Capdevila and Elbi Elem will be on hand to paint live in front of the guests.
We hope to see you at the panel discussion. All information is below.
Congratulations to the 12 premiere finalists for the Mural de la Salut in Sant Feliu de Llobregat (Barcelona, Spain) are:
David de la Mano
Guido Van Helten
Sabotaje al Montaje
