Interview with GR170

Interview with GR170

Interview with GR170 Abduzeedo is a creative reference website and we are proud to present artists, designers and other creatives from all areas you can imagine. Today we're glad to present this interview with the muralist GR170, one of the spanish members of the Mixed Media collective. You can see more from GR170 on the following links: Website Flickr Facebook First of all I would like to thank you for doing this interview, it's an honor for us to present more about you to our readers. I would like to start asking you about when your interest for graffiti and street art? Thank you for the support it's always nice to have good feedback and sorry for my english... My friends and I started painting graffiti in the Barcelona’s boom of the 2000th, the streets of the city were full of murals and big graffiti pieces, people come all over the world to paint, we wanted to be part of it but we're away from the city center and at that time we're just learning. It was just about having fun and trying to spray cool things as the big boys in the neighborhood. GR170 earlier artwork. Which artists do you use as reference? Nowadays with all the internet information overdose it's too easy to get lots of references, I try not to abuse of this because it can be dangerous. Usually I like easy and clear things, I like people without a great technique and that have his own resources to explain something. The most important influence is my friends around me, the motivation during the paintings it's the biggest support. Painting alone is pretty much boring and harder… Your style is quite influenced by cartoons and childish illustration. How did you develop this style and how would you describe it? I don’t know how to describe my style, I just do what I feel to do. I cannot do anything else, that is what comes out of my head. Describe us a bit about your creative process while creating a piece. First of all you have to find a nice spot, we spend a lot of time searching for new walls, abandoned factories, highway bridges or any place the police can’t disturb you. I used to recycle a lot of plastic or latex paint, so when I find a good wall I would have enough paint to do it all over. I look into my skechbook and try to adapt the idea into the spot. After this, it's just painting for some hours and take a photo. What's the best thing about working with Street Art and what is the worst? I'm not sure about doing Street art, I don’t feel confortable with the street art label, I prefer to say I'm doing murals. I'm aware that my murals are not graffiti. But I feel near to the graffiti movement, have good friends that are writer and I like to write my name in the walls too. I have a lot of respect for the lettering and for the graffiti culture. But I'm not an orthodox and graffiti started in 1970 decade so the evolution of the tecniques and concepts are inevitable. So for me the worst thing are the people, galleries or artists taking advantage of the street painting. The best thing is the people I meet all these years. It's really nice to know and to paint near people you used to admire! How do you describe your daily routine? Do you have any hobbies? From monday to friday I use to wake up with my girlfriend alarm clock, take a walk in the park with the dog, draw something or work in the computer. In the weekend I try to paint as much I can, this is like a religion to me… We've seen a boom on street art and graffiti on the last 5 years, tells us your opinion about it. Obviously something is happening, lots of big walls festivals, graffiti blogs all over the web, street artists selling for millions. I guess in a few years we will see what will stay and what go on. Time will tell. Tell us five lessons you believe are really important for every artist. Just some words: Know, work, overcome, resist and never give up! Tell us five websites that you like to visit www.weedandfun.com all-9-long.blogspot.com.es/ www.finerats.com maximumclatellot.blogspot.com.es/ facebook.com/internationalriot/ Thanks again for your time, please leave a final message for the ones who are starting out on this kind of business. Just do what you want and have fun! Thanks again to you for the support!

Introducing The Mind Blowing Artist Grito

Introducing The Mind Blowing Artist Grito

I really like street art, specially the aerosol art, but I gotta say I still got really impressed with the work from this spanish artist called Grito. He manages to do most of his work with huge brushes and roller painter with giant extensors, making huge, impressive and colorful murals on walls, highways or even whole buildings. With a huge inpiration from graphic design and traditional graffiti, his artworks are quite unique. Most of you may know this spanish artist thru the famous artist called Aryz or thru the clothing brand called Herokid. Well, actually he worked with both of them with his collective of street artists, Mixed Media, you take a look at it later. You can see more artworks and news from Grito at his Official Website, also on Flickr and Facebook page.

Performatic Art by Suso33

Nowadays in order to be a sucessful artist you can't just be a master at one craft, but on many as possible and try always to mix them on really unique way. I found the work of Suso33 at some Graffiti related website, but for my surprise this artist it's not just regular graffiti writer. I would dare to say he's actually a "visual performance artist" as most of his artwork got a loads of expression and movement, just take a look at the videos and images bellow and you will get it. You can get more information and flicks of Suso33 at his Website. SUSO33, an artist based in Madrid, Spain is a precursor of iconographic graffiti and experimentateur with language in that discipline, as well as a pioneer of Post-Graffiti, Street-Art and Urban Art. He is the most established artist of live painting in Spain. Currently developing a project called “Pintura Escénica en Acción” ("Painting Scene in Action"), he uses multiple art forms to convey global conceptual aspects of communication via performance (art, speech, audio and visual images - painting) to create a live 'performance painting'. Being a pioneer of these various art forms has led to highlighted performer for the Spanish 'La Noche en Blanco' in Europe as well as Director for: opening of Festival Internacional de Teatro Clásico de Almagro, LABoral Centro de Arte and Festival de las Artes, etc. (Suso33 Website)

Enigmatic Street Art by Escif

I know I have been a lot into street art and graffiti lately but suddenly I started to think about what are and should be their proposals. As art on a general meaning, this other media should serve as a support to express ideas and feelings, not just shapes and colors. I've been watching the work of this Spanish artist called Escif and I noticed that he got into a really conceptual and minimalistic aesthetic but still quite impressing and shocking sometimes. He's a great proof that a great concept can enhance any artwork. You can see more murals by Escif at his Flickr

One of the Most Beautiful Houses I've Ever Seen

I'm absolutely sure that this house is one of the most incredible houses I've ever seen. Of course, the pictures help a lot, but the shapes, the straight lines, the use of a few materials, elements that I believe are main points on the contemporary architecture, are all too evident on that house in La Finca, Spain. This is just one of hundreds of houses inside a complex and exclusive house development. A place with lots of green areas, lakes and wonderful houses designed by A-cero, an architecture studio in Madri. A-cero did a particular great job on this house: with simple and rectangular shapes working together with huge windows they have built a perfect exemple of modern architecture. And what to say about the interior?! Each bedroom following the same style with strong colors and the same space composition. And to complete this architectonic poetry, water mirrors and a beautiful pool help turn make pleasant every space on this house and easy to contemplate the emotions that a good architecture can transmit.
