Mexican calligraffiti artist Said Dokins takes part in BLOOP International Proactive Art Festival Ibiza`s, OpenAir.Gallery project. He leaves a pair of murals on a school playground as his contribution under the theme HOPE. The facades were created together with the children from the same institution. After asking each student what Ibiza
represented to them he painted every single word with his unique calligraphy style which is a fusion of the west and east: weaving the children who carry the future and the murals together.
The Ibizan avant-garde Festival that is going onto its 8th consecutive edition holds a gallery under the blues skies. This OpenAir.Gallery is a long-term project to change the urban landscapes of an entire island, and it was one of the frst when it started of back in 2011. It truly embodies the festival`s ethos “ART IS FOR EVERYBODY”. Currently, it continues to grow its collection reaching nearly 30 murals and installations sprinkled across Ibiza island.
