XOLAKA Interview – 24- 05-2021

1- How do you define yourself? How do you define your projects?

I consider myself a multidisciplinary artist, right now I am doing more mural painting, but I am an easel painter, graphic designer and any other artistic discipline.

Lately I am developing a mural art with a more rural theme, I am interested in the history of the towns of Spain, the traditions and its people.

2- How did you start working on street art?

It was around 2012, at that time I only painted oil on canvas, but I saw graffiti on the walls and wanted to paint on the street. I needed my work to be seen by everyone. The good of urban art, which is on the street within everyone’s reach, everyone can see your work.

I also wanted to learn how to use a spray, and that’s how I went out one day and painted my first mural, until now. hahaha

3- Where do you find the inspiration to create your projects? Are they modifiers of urban space?

When I started painting I wanted to tell about experiences from my day to day, from my life.

But now I am more concerned with developing a more social theme, my latest works are related to rural environments, their agriculture, their traditions, their people. They are also people who are in danger of depopulation and I like to carry out these works because we are getting to know this problem and depopulation can be stopped.

4- What does Street Art represent for you in this constantly changing world?

With art you can send messages to the world, that’s what interests me the most about street art. We can create a good social conscience.

5- Do you think Street Art should be legal or should it continue to be a form of art pursued by the police? Have you ever had problems?

I have had the typical problems, the police have stopped me and asked for my documentation.

But I have never received any fines at home, I hope it will be that way forever. he he

There are times that street art has to be illegal and others that it can be legal, depending on how you guide it.

If they are small urban interventions, it must be illegal, but if it is a large mural, with a crane, etc., it is necessary legal and with remuneration by the city council. It is art both ways.

6- How long does it usually take to prepare each project?

There are projects that can take a few months, while you send designs to the city council, they approve them, budgets, crane permits, etc.

And others that are painted in a day. You go out on the street with your design and paint on the wall that you like the most.
