Sergio Hidalgo Parades is a contemporary artist from Barcelona known as Sixe art or Sixeart. He started to paint graffiti in the late 1980s. In the mid-90s he developed his multidisciplinary talents in the fields of sculpture and studio painting. In 2008, Sixeart, Blu, Faile, JR, Nunca, Os Gêmeos painted the Tate Modern in London for the exhibition Street Art. Sixeart belongs to the collective El Equipo Plástico with the artists Nuria Mora, Nano4814 and Eltono. Kati Krause wrote in the Wall Street Journal:'Sergio Hidalgo, alias Sixeart,... who was one of the artists featured in the Tate Modern exhibition, started scrawling his name on the walls of his native Badalona, a suburb of Barcelona, in the late '80s, when graffiti was still a novelty in Spain. Despite lacking a formal artistic training, he decided to add a paintbrush and canvas to his usual tools, to great effect: His surrealist, childlike style struck a chord with audiences and art collectors the world over. Today, he is being mentioned -- and exhibited -- together with the likes of Joan Miró and Antoni Tàpies. By Wikipedia
El Xupet Negre & Chanoir

SAN began his career at the early nineties painting on walls and furniture in public spaces at Moraleja (Cáceres), where he was born and raised. After several years as an autodidact in 1997 he started to study art degree at the city of Caceres. In 2000 he moved to Madrid to begin his university studies in the Faculty of Fine Arts, which is compatible with his first exhibitions and interventions in many cities of Spain and Europe. Thereafter there is a shift down in his carreer and the drawing starts to be a tool of their language. Since its start his work has been highly figurative and which developed using exclusively public space as a support. His intention was to have his message to as many people as possible. Not socio-cultural discriminations. Their language consists of symbols and codes that give rise to a careful reading between the narrative of classical painting and moral discourses of contemporary art. All his works force us to fall into different interpretations and confusing, despite recounting daily events and anecdotes, based on more mundane topics. In recent years he has made hundreds of interventions in public spaces and exhibitions worldwide. His work has been published in numerous books and prestige artistic publications , emphasizing their monograph edited by "Belio" in 2006. Text by San
En aquel escenario de escombros dejados por la bombas, de sirenas y de alarmas antiaéreas, solo tenía una idea en la cabeza: quería pintar mujeres desnudas. Todo el día. (John Berger). By Muros Tabacalera
Jorge Rodríguez Gerada
Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada is a Cuban American contemporary artist. He is a founder of the New York Culture Jamming movement and an innovator in the international urban art scene. Since the late 90´s he has been replacing the faces of cultural icons chosen by advertisers with the faces of anonymous people to question the controls imposed on public space, the role models designated and the type of events that are guarded by the collective memory. Rodríguez-Gerada´s unique direction was mentioned in Naomi Klein´s book No Logo and was a precursor of the use of anonymous portraits now common in street art. His spectacular interventions are created for the sake of bringing awareness to relevant social issues. His large scale time base works avoid negative impact on the environment, challenge the conformity in contemporary art and allow for a reflection that goes beyond the completion of the piece to focus in its concept, process, and the metaphor that comes forth because of the material chosen.

Spanish artist Iker Muro is color and forcefulness. A kick of vitality and pure nerve. His work, far from limiting itself to a few square inches on a paper, jumps out and plays on streets all over the world at any dimension you could ever imagine. Murocracia is not only his website but also a statement of principles (indeed “Murocracia” is a Spanish play of words of “muro” which literally means “wall” and “democracy”). Illustrator, wall artist and graphic designer with more than 10 years of experience on advertising industry, awarded with a LAUS within the top talents of Spanish Graphic Design in 2010, he defines his work as an acid blend of pop art, graffiti, graphic design and typography.
