Artistas internacionales se darán cita en Aberdeen para intercambio artístico

En la ciudad escocesa Aberdeen se darán cita 11 artistas internacionales, del 14 al 16 de abril, para lo que promete ser un encuentro imperdible: el Festival Nuart Aberdeen.

Organizado por el equipo detrás de Nuart Festival, que se realiza en la ciudad noruega de Stavanger desde 2006; desarrollado en colaboración con Aberdeen Inspired y el ayuntamiento de la ciudad escocesa, será una plataforma para artistas nacionales e internacionales, quienes podrán mostrar su trabajo a través de murales, instalaciones, intervenciones y exposiciones temporales.

Robert Montgomery es uno de los artistas más esperados. El artista escocés, que ha expuesto su trabajo en Europa y Asia, es famoso por sus poemas instalados en vallas originalmente pensadas para publicidad; creados con luces blancas o madera y algunos incluso quemados en un acto de poesía visual.

Julien de Casabianca, quien lleva el arte clásico a las calles mediante reproducciones de obras de arte tradicionales, también está invitado al festival. Artista visual y cineasta, Casabianca fusiona el arte canónico con el arte callejero, como si liberara a los personajes de su encierro en los museos, al mismo tiempo que cuestiona la autoridad de esas instituciones.

El dúo alemán Herakut también está invitado. Su nombre es la unión de Hera y Akut, los dos artistas que conjuntaron su talento desde 2004, basan su proceso creativo en que cada uno improvisa sobre el trabajo del otro, dando como resultado un contraste a veces frenético, pero siempre bien equilibrado de estilos.

Adrian Watson, el director de Aberdeen Inspired, ha dicho que con el festival quieren “fomentar el compromiso de la comunidad, hacer el arte accesible para todos y crear puntos de conversación en la ciudad”.

En el “Año de la Historia, Patrimonio y Arqueología de Aberdeen”, el festival se propone demostrar cómo el street art puede crear un ambiente más imaginativo sobre el uso del espacio público.

International artists will meet in Aberdeen for artistic exchange

In the city of Aberdeen, from april 14th to 16th, 11 international artists will meet for what promises to be a must-see: the Nuart Aberdeen Festival.

Organized by the team behind Nuart Festival, which takes place in the Norwegian city of Stavanger since 2006; developed in collaboration with Aberdeen Inspired and the city council of the Scottish city, will be a platform for national and international artists, who will be able to show their work through murals, installations, interventions and temporary exhibitions.

Robert Montgomery is one of the most anticipated artists. The scottish artist, who has exhibited his work in Europe and Asia, is famous for his poems installed on fences that were originally intended for advertising; created with white lights or wood and some even burned in an act of visual poetry.

Julien de Casabianca, who takes classical art to the streets through reproductions of traditional art works, is also invited to the festival. Visual artist and filmmaker, Casabianca fuses canonical art with street art, as if he freed the characters from their confinement in museums, while questioning the authority of those institutions.

The German duo Herakut is also invited. Its name is the union of Hera and Akut, the two artists who combined their talent in 2004 base their creative process in improvising on each others work, which in result gives a contrast sometimes frenetic, but always well balanced in styles.

Adrian Watson, the director of Aberdeen Inspired, said that with the festival they want to “foster community commitment, make art accessible to all and create talking points in the city.”

In the “Year of History, Heritage and Archeology of Aberdeen”, the festival aims to demonstrate how street art can create a more imaginative environment about the use of public space.

International artists unite to create art

Text by Cristina Ochoa

Translation by Briana Prieto Fuentes

A whole week to enjoy art by any of its presentations: paintings, installations, music and cinema. All of this will happen next week in the neighborhood of Kaka’ako in Hawaii.

Pow!, the impact of art has on a person; Wow!, the reaction art provokes in the viewer; this is how festival members are defined. It has been established as one of the most important festivals internationally by the number of participating artists, the magnitude of their events and the diversity of activities.

Pow! Wow! is a gathering that honors culture and seeks to create links between the participants and the people who visit the place. From February 11th to the 18th the edition of 2017 will be made, which will include electronic musicians such as Steve Aoki and Autoerotique. In addition, the documentary Saving Banksy will be screened on one of the most representative figures of street art.


Curated by Andrew Hosner, the event aims to make an exploration into what contemporary art means. The project counts with facilities and an educational program in art and music, with which they also intend to involve people from the neighborhood.

Taiwan, Israel, Singapore, New Zealand and Germany are some of the nations that have participated in the event, which has featured more than 100 artists.

In this edition Amandalyn, Dave Van Peten, Drew Merritt, Bounce, 1010, Fafi, and Kevin Lyons will participate among others.

In times of change and uncertainty, only the sense of community can save us from a nervous breakdown. Art is the perfect excuse for combining tastes, customs and expressions.

Selina Miles and her beautiful video for ONO’U Festival

Blog/English/Festivales por

If you don’t know her, you haven’t been getting your street art fix from the right sources.

To start this 2017, Selina Miles just released a full film from 2016 ONO’U Tahiti Graffiti Festival, and it’s amazing (which is clearly becoming the norm).

Enjoy!

 

The name of the festival “ONO’U” is inspired on the fusion of two Tahitian words “ONO,” the act of joining one thing to another, and “U” meaning colors, which symbolizes “the meeting of colors” in Tahiti through the art of graffiti.

The festival primarily aims to become a major international rendez-vous for urban contemporary art located in the heart of the South Pacific Ocean.

Selina is a 29 year old videographer from Brisbane (Australia) who has been working in film for 8 years. She started shooting videos for Ironlak and became an internet sensation for the video she did for graffiti artist SOFLES entitled “Limitless”. The video has more than 11 million views on YouTube.
