Divendres amb… (Fridays with…) are encounters with artists and other groups that are prominent in their field. They present their work and talk about their artistic background in a casual and humorous tone. On the 24th of April Zosen and Mina Hamada were the guest artists at Barcelona’s CaixaForum.
How is today’s urban culture? If the graffiti is an art, why he is surrounded by so many prohibitions? Is it possible to alter the public space with plastic paint, acrylic and spray? How do they live two artists who were not born in Barcelona the relationship with the walls of the city? What are the paths behind two renowned names in contemporary urban art? How do you create a style by four hands?
