The Art of LIQEN.

LIQEN-street-art

A selection of creations by the Spanish artist LIQEN, who oscillates between street art and illustration with a lot of talent.
Some poetic and committed creations, monochrome or full ofcolors, illustrating his thoughts on the relationship between man, nature and our society… I love it!

Greek Gods – Pichi & Avo.

pichiavo-1Since first collaborating in 2007, Spanish street art duo Pichi & Avo (previously) have created an intriguing blend of traditional graffiti and renderings of mythological figures influenced by ancient Greek sculpture.
The precision, shading, and use of color is all that more impressive considering each piece is painted only with spray paint.
Pichi & Avo open their first exhibition in Italy titled Urban IconoMythology at  the Basement Project Room.

‘Il Tiberio’ Magazine, Barcelona, 1890s.

14161_1_1
Il Tiberio was a manuscript magazine produced in Barcelona at the end of the 19th century.
It contained articles, reviews of artistic and other cultural and political matters, and original drawings.
Contributors included such writers and artists as Marià Pidelaserra, Gaietà Cornet, Ramon and Juli Borrell, Emili Fontbona, Filibert Montagut, Josep Victor Solà Andreu, Joan Comellas i Viñals, and Ramon Riera Moliner.
They were all members of a group that had formed in the classrooms of Acadèmia Borrell and the tavern El Rovell de l’Ou, located on Hospital Street in Barcelona.
The Catalan painter Pere Ysern Alié received the magazine in Rome, where he went in 1896−98 to further his artistic training.
Through it, Ysern kept informed about Catalan current affairs and about the activities of the group of intellectuals and artists of which he was part, and who were his friends and colleagues.
The magazine was so named because Il Tiberio was the nickname that Riera Moliner used for Pere Ysern.
In all, 35 issues plus five special issues of Il Tiberio appeared between November 15, 1896 and May 1, 1898.

Conspiration – Portrait of two suspicious Mandrills.
When the eyes say one thing.
The mandrill is a primate of the Old World monkey family, closely related to the baboons and even more closely to the drill. It is found in southern Cameroon, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, and Congo
