Asalto 2016 In Zaragoza

Asalto 2016 In Zaragoza

For the 11th annual Asalto Festival in northern Spain’s Zaragoza the public art portion of cultural celebration is anything but assaulting in its content and style. In fact, the works can be compelling, and agreeable.

The juried selection from a large number of applicants is carefully chosen and more integrated in the architecture and the city’s environment than most “Street Art” themed festivals. The murals are often designed to be site specific, appear far removed from the concepts of activism or protest and from accounts in local media, make people very happy.

For example the remarkable mural by Aryz and SAN (Daniel Muñoz) on a historic chapel transforms its appearance while carefully staying within the bricked perimeters of other framing aspects of the original design, Elian’s conversion of steps into colorful abstract shapes is very decorative and agreeable, and Erica con C. Asalto’s “Rhinos in Love” piece is gently cute and completed with a heart.

Borondo’s multi-framed poolside piece really opens the conversation and imagination of viewers and invites you to imagine what he is seeing through those open doors.
