BYG’s new intervention for the 12+1 project (Barcelona)

“GO, GO, GO” is the new intervention for the 12+1 project, Urban Art in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, in Barcelona. Made by BYG, a collective made by Patricia and Luis, paper and collage lovers’ artists and recognized illustrators.

They collaborated in important street art festivals as Asalto (Zaragoza, Spain), Open Walls (Barcelona, Spain) or Poliniza (Valencia, Spain), and did many interventions in the streets.

BYG thinks that collage is what is joining and separating, that collage is the meeting, the surprise, what confuses and decontextualizes. That collage is discovery. And this is exactly what they want to happen in people’s mind when they pass in front of their artworks.

“GO, GO, GO”

For their intervention in the 12+1 this month, they chose a mixed media: paper and acrylic painting. GO is a tribute to Rodchenko and to the Russian Constructivism. A tribute to some graphics that left a mark within an aesthetic movement. A tribute to a time when the Word “Revolution” meant something. A tribute to the braves.

Project 12+1: 12+1 is a proposal put forward by Contorno Urbano, a socially minded artistic association:

12 artists, 12 months, one 50 square metre wall, one artistic intervention per month and one final exhibition, presenting each of the artists’ unique work. 12+1 is an open-air art gallery, one which changes each month. A unique vision which problematizes the way we exhibit urban art, and the place of these artworks in the city. The project aims to create a space for open dialogue in the city with the highest population density in Europe, in an area which sees over 700 passers-by each day. You can find the wall at Calle Rosalía de Castro, just opposite the L1 metro exit for Torrassa, in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona.

Artists winners for 12+1 2017: Roc Blackblock, Murone, Hosh, Miedo 12, BYG, Irene López León, Pati Baztan, Laura Lanelli, Elbi Elem, Fernando León, Edjinn, Miquel Wert.
