Spanish artists Sebas Velasco & Iñigo Sesma, recently took part in the refreshing Graffiti Na Gradele festival on the scenic island of Brac in Croaita. The two San Sebastian-based friends and studio mates painted a new collaborative piece titled Yugoslav riviera at the children park on the edge of the local harbor.
Though fine art painters rather than street artists, Velasco and Sesma enjoy working in the urban environment and translating their painterly approach on a bigger scale in public. Coming without any preparation or sketches, the two took a graffiti artist’s approach to creating the mural by collaging their imagery into a final piece. Taking inspiration from their trip trough Croatia and neighboring countries, the two put together a composition that includes typical residential building blocks, an old Yugo car, a portrait of a local festival goer, along with some elements from an old tourist catalog. Using similar visual language as well as technique, the duo nicely blended all these elements together, forming a somewhat of a postcard image from the festival.

"Stranger than Paradise"

Oil on wood
This piece is part of "Artistas en la memoria" a group show wich gathers the work of different art pieces of ex students and tecahers of Diego Porcelos Highschool at my hometown Burgos.
Some details of last wall with @telmomiel in Rotterdam and some text by my prijatelj @sashabogojev "Hit the Lights", the mural depicts a local guy holding a glowing plastic back and looking over his shoulder towards the illuminated street or the residential apartments. Mixing Telmo Miel's smoothly spray painted part with Velasco's raw painterly and textured sections, the image is wrapped within transparent strokes that further accent the surreal atmosphere. The same strokes are actually the borders between the two different visual languages, creating surreal feel within a mundane, realist image. Even though the main character is looking away and is carrying the symbol of the consumer society, the night time image still carries a positive vibe with warm lights glowing from the night store and the bag. Inspired by Metallica's classic, the artists created an image that perfectly fits the chosen title of the piece.
