One of our favorite street muralists right now, Hyuro, has been mightily busy in Valencia over the past few weeks. Hyuro just sent us a few images of a new work, Primaveravalenciana, a piece we can only assume is tied into the political and reform climate of Spain right now. Beautiful, poetic work.
One of the most subtle, intelligent, and academic street artists in the game right now, Valencia-based Escif brings a new piece to his hometown, titled “Future is Gone.” We can look at his art all day long. And we just may.
We have Spain on our minds. We hear Ibiza is a nice place. Maybe we will make it part of our Spanish tour after Madrid and Valencia. But we won’t be near James Blunt. We remember that Noel Gallagher had to sell his villa in Ibiza because “he can’t stand living there in the knowledge that Blunt is nearby making terrible music.” That was in 2008. God only knows where Blunt lives now on the island.
Escif just passed a message out about a few of his pieces being buffed in his hometown of Valencia, Spain. Not the whole piece, you see, just the text. With local elections nearing in Spain, and Escif creating a few political pieces in conjunction, the work is almost just a powerful in its image. As Escif says, “Beautiful drawings can remain, but strange words must been buffed.”
Stay tuned for Escif’s show with SAN at FIFTY24SF Gallery this Summer 2011
