Ibiza is that place where you appreciate beauty and youth and hedonistic forays into western values of free will and free love. Or at least that’s what we’ve heard.
While Street Art was probably not initially part of the brief of this island when it transformed its reputation as a destination for fog-machine laser glow-stick dancing and poolside debauchery, initiatives like the BLOOP International Proactive Art Festival have extended the creative range of expression that is celebrated for almost a decade now. With the theme of “Art is for Everybody”, BLOOP has welcomed more than 60 murals and installations so far – about 30 of which are currently on view throughout the year on the isle known as an adult playground.
Today we look as a more conceptual/situational installation in the Balearic
Sea that surrounds the Spanish islands, a la Brad Downey or Fra. Biancoshock.
Here laying on the bottom of the quivering, wiggling and enticing blue sea you
are invited by VLADY to play hopscotch. As if to channel the mindset of many a
party animal, he is labeling the installation “Whenever, Everywhere, Anyway”.
