In January-February of 2012, me and Dixon painted all the corridor of a hotel floor in Barcelona (Hotel Vincci Bit) . All the 7 floors, the hallway and the exterior façade have been painted by several artists from several countries: Alex Trochut (Spain), Vasco Mourao (Portugal), Matt Moore (USA), Yoshi Sislay (Japan), Brosmind(Spain), Aleix Gordo Hostau (Spain) y Dixon (Canada), Marta Cerdà (Spain), Dopludo Collective (Russia), Christian Gastaldi (Italy) and Lorenzo Petrantoni (Italy).
Size of the mural: 97×2,2m (213,4m2).
Technique: Acrylic paint, spray paint and paint pens on wall.
Opening: April 15th, 2012.
We had total freedom to perform our work by Beriestain Interioristas so, being a hotel, we decided to pick a theme that would allow us to improvise, to combine our personal styles and to place a lot of related concepts to the environment that we were going to paint. The theme was “the dreams”, the dream world. This was the result.
It took a month and a week to complete all the murals in all its details, here a full report of the making of:
