Giant Installation by Pineapple Crocodile in Ibiza`s world heritage

BLOOP International Proactive Art Festival delivers a guerrilla installation for its 2017 edition dedicated CHANGES. This installation is a new contribution to the OpenAir.Gallery, the Festival`s long term project to change the urban landscapes of an entire island.
It is made by Pineapple Crocodile and floral artist Montse Nadal, produced by Biokip Labs. This 5m x 50m painting is made purely by organic material on the island: salt, charcoal and flowers. Uniting nature and arts in an enchanting context, Dalt Vila of Ibiza, UNESCO registered human heritage.

The guerrilla installation was made in day and due to the nature of the materials, ephemeral and lasted only two days. The original message written in charcoal is a quote by Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius “The Universe is Change, our life is what our thoughts make it”, illustrating the Festival`s 2017 theme.

This massive intervention was made possible by Pineapple Crocodile`s creativity, and the technical coordination by Montse Nadal, using Biokip Labs` logistics and production.

  • Genius Loci is the title of this intervention for Muri
    5 days ago by i_support_street_art 'Genius Loci' is the title of this intervention for Muri a perdere curated by  @artepubblicap  an art project born in Ascoli Piceno intended for the areas affected by the earthquake in the Italian region of Marche. As the artist explains “When I was told the story of this wall It seemed as if a ghost was working to keep safe this part of the construction that survived the earthquake. I imagined that the structure was held up by the hands of an invisible and positive force that was preserving and taking care of it, as of a very precious thing.”

    2 days ago by i_support_street_art  @alicepasquini  just returned from the island of Santa Maria in the Azores for Festival Sete Sois Sete Luas. Using spraypaint meant for cars—the only kind available—she painted two pieces close to the ocean. Inspired by the form and color of the walls, she painted two women—or maybe the same woman—one in front of the other. They gaze out toward the horizon and look at the ocean from this island. “Today we’re living in difficult times in where many cross the water toward new lands in search of a better life, not always arriving in the end."  #instagraffiti   #isupportstreetart   #thestreetisourgallery   #alicepasquini
