Location : Navia, España

Year : 2021

1- If you had to choose a Street Art piece that you created, as a transformation of the urban space, which one would you choose? How does this Street Art piece denote urban space metamorphosis?

The work prints an emotion in the utilitarian, it tells us a story, and that is the only narrative I am looking for.

2- Why did you make this Street Art piece in this urban space? Was it the town hall or the property owner who authorized or asked you to create it? Can we consider this work as illegal/vandalism or legal, what is your criteria?

It arose as a result of extreme negativity in my life, I was in a cafeteria having breakfast and I took out a notebook, I heard the cawing of some crows and I drew several of them complaining and screaming. its creation? It was the local council along with the festival organizers who gave me the wall. Can we consider this work as illegal / vandalism or legal, what is your criterion? It is a legal job.

3- What is the message you want to communicate through this Street Art piece? Is it related to the urban space where you did it?

The message revolves around the dispute and discomfort, embodied through several crows that complain and screech, emulating a dark environment full of uncertainties. Is it related to the urban space where you did it? Yes, I actually used the figure of the crow because the whole area was full of them and while I was painting I could hear them.

4- How was this work integrated into the urban space? What was the interaction that the inhabitants of this city had with your project? Did they participate in its creation?

It was integrated in a disruptive way since the colors of the environment were very different, which makes it cause a greater impact, the inhabitants had a good interaction, most of the interviews that were carried out were in front of this mural. Did they participate in its creation? They did not participate.

5- Do you think it is important that the local people participate during the production of your work and that they become artists modifying the urban space or do you prefer to carry out your projects alone without anyone seeing you?

If it is a legal site I prefer that they participate since in this way they make the work their own and for them it takes on a more special meaning.

6- According to you, what is the criteria that determines your Street Art work modifies the urban space and why is your work considered aesthetically well done?

Aesthetically, I seek that the weight of the work is balanced and the elements are not too overwhelming, I am interested in free spaces.

7-What is the “historical future” of your work? Should we take care of it, preserve it and repaint it as if it were a museum’s piece of art? Or should it be allowed to age with the city itself?

It would be necessary to try to take care of it as much as possible but I bear in mind that being on the street, its future will be the same as that of any other, ending up aging with the city.

8- How does your work add value to the urban space in which it is produced?

My work tells us a story about the place where it is created. I investigate the area and try to soak up it so that it is born from the communion between my motivations and the environment.

9- What were the difficulties that you encountered during the completion of your work modifying the urban space?

Mainly where the wall is and how accessible it is, if the sun shines a lot, if it has windows or if the scaffolding is insufficient.

10- Why is urban art important to modify the urban space? What sort of projects are you planning to do in the future ?

It is important because it brings meaning to life, people are in need of meanings since many times they do not find them in their day to day life, and urban art offers anyone a story of multiple interpretations. What kind of projects do you plan to do in the future? ? I plan to take my work to the sculptural space and to any other medium that allows me to develop my creativity in all possible areas.
