Some years ago, while the graffiti was in full boiling in the center of the city, something very fat was cooking outside the capital.
The stage: huge concrete walls that make up the landscape of the urban belt through highways, train tracks or imposing abandoned factories that hosted a group of boys who, armed with paint, dedicated themselves to giving a new life to these lacking spaces her.
The suburbs were flooded with colors, those of the Mixed Media. A new landscape, a new way of understanding urban art in the form of murals or large format bombings, in which, among others, a name was repeated: GR170, composed of letters and numbers, by characters with protruding eyes, Incredible heights and extra thick strokes that define your particular style.
Suburban Folk is his first solo exhibition, and Montana Gallery Barcelona will be the place where his works will be shown in different formats and techniques, including painting or sculpture, but under a common denominator: life on the periphery of the big city. A reflection on post-contemporary, millennial and current urban aesthetics, but without losing sight of the origins where all this began.
