The world’s leading Grafitti artists will be displaying their work on the Island of Ibiza from 8th to 16th August. Urban In Ibiza will be culminating in a live art display by one of the UK’s most notorious graffiti writers Inkie.
Heralding from the infamous Bristol School of Graffiti, Inkie has been identified as Banksy’s partner in crime. A dominant presence of over twenty years on the international graffiti scene, Inkie’s trademark intricate imagery is uniquely striking with styles drawn from diverse inspiration, ubiquitous street signage, the architecture of ancient temples, Islamic geometry and currently resides as in-house artist at Jade Jagger’s West London Studios. Another urban art legend Chu will also be drawing live on the night too!
For Urban in Ibiza, Inkie has selected a cross-section of the UK’s leading street artists to show work of this kind in Ibiza for the first time including musical genius and Drum and Bass pioneer Goldie! Pioneer, cult status grafitti artist, drum n bass icon, DJ, producer and actor, Goldie is a total original and multi-talented complex shapeshifter. Goldie’s produced artistic works with 3D (Massive Attack) and provided pieces to Neneh Cherry, Noel Gallagher, Bjork, James Lavelle and Nellee Hooper and Pete Tong’s Wonderland to name a few.
MauMau, Chu, Dan MacMillan, China Mike, Pure Evil, Ryan Mcphail, Zeus, Fark FK, Finbarr, DAC, Nine-0, David Walker, Hush, Agent Provocateur, Grafter, Andy Council, Don, Ben Allen and SHOK-1 will all show a selection of their work too from 8th – 16th August at the suitably glamourous Atzaro hotel in Ibiza.
On 12th August, Atzaro plays host to a celebration of the exhibition in their beautiful gardens with Inkie creating one of his master-pieces live over the stunning flood-lit pool, reflecting such a special event on the Island. This one-off piece will then be auctioned-off during the night. Entrance is free and the event will run from 8pm – 2am. For more information visit the Urban In Ibiza website.
