A young artist collective from Bosnia and Herzegovina called HAD (Hamo, Anel, Dama) used a grain tank as their first workplace for months. From the first moment they met, they wanted to show what the result would be when a painter, an architect and a street artist work together. One of the team members describes it to us: ”On August 9, our first exhibition titled WALLS was open and it also reopened a forgotten factory in Visoko. We have transformed 5.000 square meters of an abandoned factory into a gallery of street art. Seeing that we are such a diverse art collective, we have chosen a technique that works for all of us. We created artworks by deconstructing the structure of the walls. The final number of large scale artworks in the WALLS exhibition was 15.”
”Revolutionary and selfless artistic expression, though distant from vandalism, possesses a dose of rage in it, the need for stealth and desire for change. We draw inspiration from the forgotten things, from our own silence, surrealism, past and melancholy, turning it into representations of human figures and portraits. By deconstruction, we want to create a new life on each wall and walk away from it. Our vision is the only thing they bring home along with them.”
You may consider a modest donation — however much you can afford, when it comes from the heart, it’s the kind of gesture that makes us warm with appreciation.
