VII edition Avant Garde Tudela 2020-06-22

VII edition Avant Garde Tudela

Miss Van, Mina Hamada and Jeff McCreight ‘Ru8icon’ take art back to the streets again at the VII edition of Avant Garde Tudela 2020, international festival of contemporary muralism.

The event, curated by artist Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada and organised by Tudela-Cultura (concejalía de cultura del Ayuntamiento de Tudela) took placed with a great popular success in the beautiful city of the north of Spain from 8th to 14th of June.

Betting for culture is always risky, even more nowadays. The idea of celebrating the 7th edition of Avant Garde Tudela 2020 in the middle of phase 3 of the state of alarm decreed by the Spanish government because of Covid-19 meant taking extra risks and efforts, but also a big imput of energy and hope for bringing art back to the streets and set it free from its imposed lock down.

The final results couldn’t have been better. A perfect management, artists being comitted and having fun, the great support from the local authorities and, above all, the amazing feedback that we got from the neighbours, made this Avant Garde Tudela an experience difficult to forget for all of us.

Three new medium and large scale murals were added to the twentyone former ones existing in Tudela, done by 3 Barcelona based international artists who have in common not only a big experience and worldwide recognition, but also a great quality artistic proposal:


Miss Van (Toulouse, France). Location: C/ Magdalena Eguaras, 56.
Vanessa Alice has painted ‘Las Gitanas’ at Tudela, the biggest wall of her career.

Two dreamlike, timeless, misterious, sensual muses…who emerge plenty of power in a typical blue sky and red desert landscape. A joyful feast of details to discover in the glances, the foulards, the pompons, the feathers, the ornaments, the hair… Miss Van gifts us a sensorial experience through a magic, poetic and unique feminity.

Mina Hamada (Japan). Location: C/ Juan Antonio Fernández, 22.

The Japanese artist opens a door for us into a world of self imagination, introducing to the observer into a universe full of shapes and colours that evoke mother nature, the elements, the environment. Wind, water, local flowers and plants are captured in Mina’s work which is an open field for our personal interpretation of the objects that we are contemplating, depending on our personal mood.

Jeff McCreight (USA). Location: Paseo del Castillo, 9.

Jeff has painted two kids jumping into a pool or a river. His artwork is an allegation in pro of joy and happiness, about the excelent quality of life that can be experienced in Tudela.

A representation of the purest expression of people having fun without any further thoughts, without worrying about yesterday or tomorrow. Located in a beautiful environment and framed by an spectacular landscape, it’s worthy to take the time for contemplating the piece from different perspectives.

Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada, artist and curator of Avant Garde Tudela 2020: ‘against all odds, it has been a great success. After all this time staying at our homes, we feel real lucky for being one of the first street art festivals maybe in the whole world. Everyone has loved to have the chance of watching some colour and joy’.

Alejandro Toquero, Mayor of Tudela: ‘the artists have given life and freedom to the same walls where we have been confined’.
