Political Buffing -Escif

  Escif-Valencia  I was walking throughValencian historic center when I found some walls I´ve painted in last weeks. But I found my pieces partially covered. I don´t know who does it, but it´s strange that only sentences were buffed! Local elections in Valencia will be next month, so I suppose that politicians are afraid that people can think a little. Incredible that they didn´t cover them completely, because they make a clear censorship. Beautiful drawings can remain, but strange words must been buffed. Silence contains all languages!"

Escif-Valencia "Political Buffing"


unurth Art does Moca

This show couldn't fail with the talent that's involved, and in parts it is really great. The Os Gemeos, Barry McGee and Steve Powers sections stood out for me. Banksy's section is good; it's great to see the classic stencils mixed in with newer pieces. This show will go down as an important event, and it will help broaden recognition of street art. But Art in the Streets is a missed opportunity: the show focuses so heavily on graffiti that it ignores so many of the important street artists that have been active in the last 10 years, without whom this show would not have happened. The 'street art movement' of the last 10 years is minimally represented; of the hundreds of artists that have appeared on Unurth, only about 12 are represented in this show (of ~95 total). And the Blu debacle matters; the show is much poorer for his absence, and the spirit that he represents.
