"The jungle is where you call for it".
These processes of transformation can be seen as an overflowing of the city - an overflow that manifests itself through the art that has been born in the city. With this exhibition a perspective about this complex interlocking is to be opened, which is coming from the city, to be spread under it, and through it.
The combination of various forms of Muralismo and techniques of Mural Art with motifs that no longer necessarily use symbols, nor imagination of the urban space, is a first characterisation of the contemporary Central- and South American Mural Art which pervades the continent. While this form of Mural Art is not especially new, nor even specifically Central- and South American, the answer to the question if it is being up to date perhaps lies in the current global crisis. This crisis demands new forms of organisation and social movements, new unions, innovative ideas or unusual connections.
Guache is active in the urban space since 2005. His mark able wall paintings and graffiti can be seen in several cities and regions of Columbia and further. His artistic approach unifies the visual crossbreeding of the Latin-American, ancestral and Afro- Caribbean popular culture. His graphic redeems the memory of the people and the cultural identity of the communities as well as the mixture in the contemporary urban stage, with techniques like graffiti and street art. Guache published together with the art-collective Bogotá Street Art the book Calle esos ojos? that shows the visual work they have made in Bogotá in the last 8 years.
“The most powerful weapon of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.”
Mazatl is an activist and artist who lives in Mexico. He takes part in various collectives that move around the search for social, political and environmental justice. His art is inspired by the work of individuals and collectives who are actively fighting against oppression. Mazatl is member of the artist collective “Justseeds” as well as the “Martirs of '68 Popular Culture School“
Zèh Palito is an artist who has interchanged the ruins of the castles of childhood dreams, for broken walls in the streets and urban spaces. Travels through continents across the cities, remote villages, in all times to bring his art to the people and to unify the people - his work remains marked by the streets of Limerick - São Paulo- Brazil. “Under the paint, the world of fantasy lives, intertwines with everything: Colors, shapes, energies, animals, people and nature and merges in a simultaneous existence and breathe together as one… Being also a constant search of reinventing the inherent evolution, refers to the liberation of bad things, what represents the equality of men, nature and animals, to our travel companions in the cycle of life. “
The artist shares his visual mythology and thoughts about the future, that celebrates the vitality and dynamism of this chaotic, poetic world. Nevertheless, here composed by brilliant colors, geometric structures, organic abstraction and dimensional variations full of exotic and mystic dreams.
