Mining Hills

The mining mountains of La Union contain important metallic mineral deposits, mainly of lead and zinc, and was characterized by an intense mining activity already in times of Carthaginians and Romans. The mining boom of the 19th century filled these mountains with underground mining, and from 1950 onwards, open pit mining had a brutal impact on the landscape, until the mining shut down in 1991.

Graffiti Mix

This is my last post about this awesome exhibition.

Left wall.
- Top left: "Vida" ("Life") by SFHIR (Spain). His beginnings in graffiti go back to 1995 when, at the age of fourteen, he discovered in this art the ideal expression vehicle to channel his concerns. In his works he combines graffiti with various tools such as airbrushes, pistols, brushes or rollers. His work is marked by an artistic obsession, hyperrealism.

- Bottom left: "Angela" by Noe Two (France). It is one of the most emblematic figures of French graffiti. His art is shown in murals and on canvas; This self-taught artist does not hesitate to explore the different facets of graphic creation. His travels around the world and new cultures are transformed and nourished by his painting. Beyond borders, his work conveys universal emotions common to all. The painter offers us portraits of women and animals in which the colour overflows us, the looks and their intensity show an expressive and modern painting with a mixture of realism, colour and pure graffiti.

- Bottom right: "Retrato" ("Portrait") by Carlos Callizo (Spain). Doctor "Cum Laude" in Fine Arts by the University of Murcia. He has dedicated himself exclusively to painting and in recent years has experimented with murals and Urban Art, getting to participate in the Urban Art Festival "Le M.U.R" in Paris. At present he combines this activity with Professor of painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts at the Public University of Murcia.

Right wall.
- Left: "Astronaute" by Levalet (France). Charles Leval or Levalet is one of those artists who not only creates an incredible street art, but develops it in a personal style. It was initially formed in Strasbourg, studying painting and then animation. His pieces interact with his surroundings, hide, scale and often include three-dimensional objects transformed into urban facilities. His work needs a careful localization of perfect spaces and accurate measurements, as well as inspiration when drawing.

- Right: Statue of Liberty by Blek le Rat. Here in a previous post.
