12 artists, 12 months, one wall, one artistic intervention per month and an exhibition at the end of the year showcasing one unique piece created by each artist. Here we show you Irene Lopez Leon ‘s latest wall.
The “12+1” project is set in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat (Barcelona), in an open-air art gallery, and features a different work of art each month, created on the same wall. This innovative event seeks to question the way we exhibit street art, and the place of these artworks in the city. The first edition, which took place in 2016, brought to a close by an exhibition in Tecla Sala, was a big success. In 2017, the selected artists are: Irene López León, Roc Blackblock, Iker Muro, Hosh, Miedo 12, Miquel Wert, Pati Baztán, Elbi Elem, Fernando León, Edjinn, BYG and Laura González Llaneli.
Irene López León is the selected artist for January. Born in l’Hospitalet de Llobregat, she defines her work as “Landscape painting”. In her compositions, geometry, impossible perspectives, organic elements and hypnotic architectures combine to transport us into a dreamlike and vibrant new World.
