The climate of Valencia on the Costa Azahar is ideal for the growing of citrus fruit and is Spain’s main exporter of oranges, it’s also a hub for street art and now CITRIC festival, described as a lemon-orange flavoured collaboration neomuralism intervention! The GUAU association is organising the event in Valencia, Spain and is being mentored by MIAU fanfare festival, a collab in itself!
“The world of street art is going mainstream, and artists are working for themselves, we wanted to go back to the beginning and ignite the essence of collabration between street artists” Citric
So Citric approaches street artists and asks them who they would like to collaborate with, and the challenge is to create a mural together. Take a look at the final murals below…
The first kiss. by Isaac Mahow and Xelon Xlf is the first kiss between a couple, a kiss between technology and nature and what triggers them.
“Nature has so much inner strength that it literally transfers from human to robot with the first kiss… the girl grabs the robots hand and pulls it in hard to kiss him, and with her red-hot touch it melts the metal of the robot’s chest, the feeling and sensation surrounding the robot is now so large that it can not process what is happening and the robots head explodes into a thousand pieces… It is love, sex, is real life. Something that happens every day” XelonXlf
Even down to her heart tattoo with the nail striking through instead of an arrow… the artists have certainly paid attention to detail.
Other collabs between artists are SPOK and SAN
Also SEBAS VELASCO and DULK get together for this gigantic mural.
