The Guerrilla Activist Raids Ibiza waters at BLOOP fest 2019-09-09

The Guerrilla Activist Raids Ibiza waters at BLOOP fest

The 9th consecutive edition of BLOOP International Proactive Art Festival IBIZA an avant-grade project by Biokip Labs that marries arts and people opens curtains. A completely free art festival that showcases comprehensible democratic art to a universal audience. This celebration is changing the face of Ibiza, the haven of nightlife, to a cultural tourism destination through art. Providing a unique festival that stresses on the importance of conveying a message, this year RESILIENCE.

Vlady, the guerrilla activist is invading the white isle with his mind teasing installations. First up, an open air installation titled “Whenever, everywhere, anyway”, a Hopscotch appears in the crystal clear Cala Conta beach of the Mediterranean sea and a pond in Ibiza center, calling the attention of all swimmers and passer-by. Hopscotch, a children`s game that can be played alone or more. These ancient street game structures were placed in these mobile settings as a way to manifest that the players won`t stop playing in no matter what the circumstances as a form of RESILIENCE.

“I intend the art that I leave around also as a game. One of my goals is to amuse myself, and to see how odd or surprising something can look” the artist explains.

These temporary installations are contributions to the OpenAirGallery, one of the most famous events within the program. A long-term project to change the urban landscapes of Ibiza with murals and installations, that truly embodies the festival`s ethos “ART IS FOR EVERYBODY”. It has welcomed more than 60 murals and installations so far and still today nearly 30 artworks can be seen around the isle all year round.


Vlady (aka Vladyart): is a prolifc multidisciplinary artist better known for his street based artworks. He challenged his own society with an unprecedented, sarcastic, sharp, guerrilla activism. We can easily identify Vlady as one of the first street art activists in Sicily and among the few Italian names active in this field (unsanctioned interventions).

BLOOP International Proactive Art Festival: The world`s first celebration dedicated to Proactive Art, where the artworks encourage the spectators “to think” proactively regarding the festival`s annual theme. This year going on to its 9th consecutive edition it has introduced the island on the international tourism map as a cultural destination. Earlier this year it held its zero edition in Milan amid the international design week and is set to travel to Japan, Tokyo in 2020.
