3 September, 2020

If walking through Barcelona, Cancun, Miami, Ostend or Los Angeles you come across a mural with the whole range of oranges and a bunch of cool grannies, then there’s no doubt about it.

23 July, 2020

Palm trees, flamingoes, shapes and figures taken from elements found in the nature combining pastel tones and more strident ones conform artist Antonyo Marest (Alicante, 1987), who takes us back to the 1920s and the traditional Art Deco architecture in its most contemporary version and with a Mediterranean taste. His work ranges from painting to […]

10 minutes with… Íñigo Sesma

29 June, 2020

As if we were in an American road-movie or in the Kerouac’s ‘On the road’ scenes, the Basque artist living in Madrid, Íñigo Sesma (San Sebastián, 1987), takes us on a trip to Middle America, its suburbs, its emptiness and its characters thanks to his paintings. Through a work of photographic documentation, Sesma portrays the […]

10 minutes with… Franck Noto aka Zest

11 June, 2020

The work of French artist Franck Noto aka Zest (Montpellier, 1980) has taken a substantial turn since its inception, more than 25 years ago, when he started painting graffiti on the streets of his hometown. Graffiti understood not as a form of vandalism, but as a design-oriented expression and a self-discharge in its purest sense. […]

10 minutes with… Artez

7 May, 2020

He spent the first ten years of his painting career doing letters and graffiti in his hometown and it wasn’t until a few years ago when Artez (1988, Belgrade) introduced feminine characters and figurative elements in his artwork, mostly delicate women surrounded by plants and immerse into their daily routines. Today he’s one of the […]

Manifesto

URVANITY ART

The new contemporary art fair

It is manifest that for several decades new practices, values and codes have coexisted in the cultural landscape of our cities, occupying a place in the world of contemporary art. The issue is how to tie them together, and this cannot be achieved only by means of an urban art fair. Therefore, Urvanity has been conceived as a platform for a New Contemporary Art.

To speak of new art is to catalyze a contemporary project with a historical perspective because “all that is not tradition is plagiarism.” Notably, Urvanity advocates proposals (with a strong base in the urban context of the 1970 ́s up until today) that construct a dialogue with modernity, and, as a result, provide a setting from which we can explain the world around us. It is important not only to consider the work itself but to understand the public space where this very work is composed and that it at the least convey an aesthetic experience.

Urvanity seeks to explore and thus imagine possible future scenarios for this New Contemporary Art, thanks in part to alliances with other initiatives and promoters of culture in our city. To support the creation and spreading of ideas, as well as facilitate access to these practices of contemporary creation that define our vast cultural urban landscape.
