Online art show "URBAN ART ICONS"
URBAN ART ICONS
Urban Art already has several generations of artists, from the pioneer Blek le Rat to the colourful Okuda. In "Icons of urban art" we bring together the work of eight great characters of the current street art: Blek le Rat, Shepard Fairey, The London Police, Faile, Perishable, Mark Jenkins, Okuda San Miguel and Mr Brainwash. Their work has numerous connections in the reinterpretation of contemporary icons and in the incorporation of transversal references, where techniques, aesthetics and messages are combined.
In all its manifestations, Urban Art uses a risky and committed artistic language that elaborates its messages through the fusion and interconnection of countless references that make up our contemporary ideology. Art is said to fulfil a mission as a channel of reflection on the reality of our time. That the different creative manifestations employ a transgressive and anti-system discourse is an example of the need for criticism that characterises the human being and that, in the artistic context, enjoys to some extent licenses to channel a collective feeling.
