Ephimera is the large scale artwork I painted at “B-Murals” urban art center in Barcelona, in collaboration with Italian Cultural Institute of Barcelona, Montana Colors and Fondaciò Carrulla.
The aim of the festival is to investigate the new languages of urban contemporary movement. As sentences the curator Xavier Ballaz “The phenomenon generally known as “urban art” is a complex phenomenon that is crossed by many vectors. Mainly of the artistic, social and urbanistic fields, without which it can not be fully understood”.
In relationship with the curatorial approach to “intermural art” (term defined by Rafael Schacter, anthropologist and curator from London) I worked on the concept of “ephimeral”. Thinking about art as no longer eternal, but temporary and fragile.
