In fact we could say that both (nature & geometry) are the result of the technique that I use. The masking tape inevitably generates this geometry, these triangular shapes that allow me to create animals. The truth is that the desire to paint but the ignorance of the art spray are what led me to think of some way to use it more easily and adapt it to my potential. This is where the idea of using tape, forcing me to think so and doing sketches synthesizing animals, for now, I do. by Núria Toll via Stree2lab
Usually paints, and occasionally stumbles upon writing, city planning, and photography. When a video camera ended up in his hands for the first time, he had been working with Naples’ Spanish Quarters for three years. The fruits of his labor became first a book, QS, and then a documentary film, Il segreto, which try to convey the complexity of a neighborhood corroded by prejudices. To look inside and beyond the frequently brutal appearance of things. By Cyop & Kaf

Pastel inquires through symbolism, not recounted stories, but still remain current in new geographical environments with the same problems and socio-political differences. With the work of arrowheads and flora, a base is marked in the existential dialogue, real, pure and tragic of what a man should be the man within his surroundings and coexists.

Reskate! is a project by the versatile group from Barcelona Reskate Arts & Crafts. It is born with the intention of rescuing that skateboard you abandoned where you left yourteens behind, that didn't resist your last trick or it's just rotting in your balcony. Reskate is an idea both simple and romantic that seeks restoring your old skateboard into a brand new mini long. Again. With such purpose, Reskate staff recollect abandoned boards which once reshaped are delivered to either acclaimed or novel illustrators. They reuse them as the legitimate support of artistic expression they always were. This way, we get a limited and unrepeatable edition. If it makes you go skating again, you'll make its creators happy. The result is so exciting that it's worth it giving the skateboard a second chance. Relive it.
