WE AArt – Photoset

by

Henrik Haven, aka Henrik Lamar travelled to Aalborg (Denmark) to shoot some of the process at WE AArt – a public art event, featuring new murals by Aryz, Alexis Diaz, Escif, Liqen, Waone and AEC of Interesni Kazki, Franco Fasoli aka Jaz, Fintan Magee, Kenor and Don John. Here are some of the shots from the set up:

Being one of the larger Danish cities, Aalborg deserves an interesting and inspiring urban space. The reality of today is that very little contemporary art enriches Aalborg – or the people living in it. Street art – public art – already exists in Denmark, and can be seen in particularly larger cities. WEAArt is, however, the first festival in Denmark to focus entirely on murals.

Aryz

First time in Vilnius, Aryz has created a mural from the scratch, without any preparatory sketch. Initially the owners of the building, a public medical centre, expressed their wishes not to have any skeletons, skulls or cigarettes in the mural, since it might be offensive to their aging clientele. However, in the end Aryz signature skeletons appeared and the mural is now a hit with elderly ladies passing by to the medical centre.

thiago_toes01

Thiago Toes is a Brazilian artist who stepped up into the world of fine art after years of being an active graffiti writer in Sao Paolo. As a member of the legendary Vlok crew together with Finok, Nunca, Ise, Vino, Remio, Os Gemeos, and many others, Thiago brushed up his style and skills that he is these days using on canvas and murals.

Recently he participated in the fourth edition of Polo Design Show in the Pavilion Vera Cruz, São Bernardo do Campo, at Polo Design Center, collaborating with the architect Gisele Pacheco. For this installation they created a more elaborate, living concept of the traditional “white cube” style gallery space. With a tree in the center of the space that flourish white cubes to the ceiling, characteristic scent, and a custom sound system, this installation presents the artwork by triggering all the senses. Other than painting the walls and floors of the install, the artist showcased his recent canvas works as well as his latest limited edition print.
