Capsule collection


To celebrate its fourth edition, Urvanity has partnered with Canadian artist Ryan Heshka and the urban clothing brand Tiwel to create its first limited capsule collection sold inside the fair. This collection gathers together those fantastic characters inspired by pop surrealism with a touch of humor and a visual language inspired by antiquated comics, pulp magazines, classic cinema, science fiction… so characteristic of Heshka’s own imaginary.

The woman figure, always key and powerful on his designs, will also be represented through ‘Frog Wife’, the main character of his latest book published less than a year ago. Other characters from the most disturbing dreams like ‘Meatball’ will also be in this collection consisting of two t-shirts editions, a sweatshirt and a short-sleeved shirt. The images chosen for this collection made under Urvanity’s curatorship represent a crossroads between Heshka’s inside world and Tiwel’s urban and casual attitude. You’ve been warned: Come get your model, it’s a limited numbered edition!

Heshka’s artwork is informed by his passion for graphic design, vintage comic books, pulp magazines and B-movies, and old imagery taken out of time and context. Below the surface, themes such as tension between the natural and man-made world, modern anxieties, and role-reversal drive the visuals. The images chosen for this collection represent a cross section of these inspirations.

An obsessive creative, Heshka’s work has appeared in print and on gallery walls worldwide. He has self-published comic books, his most recent being FROG WIFE. Fatales, a recently published monograph (Cernunnos Publishing), covers his art career from 2004 to 2016. He lives in Vancouver, British Colombia, Canada with his wife and daughter.

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.
