This week BSA is in Madrid to capture some highlights on the street, in studio, and at Urvanity 2019, where we are hosting a 3 day “BSA TALKS” conference called “How Deep Is the Street?” Come with us every day to see what the Spanish capital has happening in urban and contemporary.
Walking through the winding streets and hills of historic neighborhoods in Madrid you’ll find choice little nooks where people are painting – illegally and legally. In one sliver back at the end of an ally we discovered the Parisian PRO176 who grew up loving graffiti but has embraced an aesthetic informed more by Marvel than Dondi.
We took a few minutes to absorb the pop palette and saw echos in the works of peers like Crash, Pose, Tristan Eaton among others… a cheerful smashing of superheroes and supertext, racecars and character, mathematics and mayhem. As part of the Urvanity onslaught, PRO176 is one more artist who is leaving his mark on the streets of Madrid.
