[AGENDA] Inauguration mural by Monkeybird in Guzzo – Monday 13th January

EN
Let’s start 2020 with a new event we are proud to be curating. On Monday, January 13th, we invite you to the inauguration of a new mural by MonkeyBird, a duo of artists specialized in stencils based in Bordeaux, France. They will be painting live a new permanent wall of Guzzo club.

MonkeyBird creates large-scale murals with mythological animals as the center of their creations. Most of MonkeyBird’s works incorporate a monkey and a humanoid bird, which represent “the two faces of humanity; the monkey is the realistic face and the bird is the dreamer,” according to 5Art Gallery (Paris). The details of the old world, such as classical architecture, timing devices and scales add to the timeless appearance of the paintings of this impressive duo. In addition to be lovers of alchemy and mythology, MonkeyBird are also experts in graphic and industrial design.

In addition to the live painting, we will also enjoy the musical selection 100% vinyl of M.Houellebreak – www.mixcloud.com/vrai-niveleur
And also from our resident Soulaze – www.mixcloud.com/soulblaze

Los detalles del viejo mundo, como la arquitectura clásica, los dispositivos de cronometraje y las balanzas se suman al aspecto atemporal de las pinturas de este dúo tan impresionante. Además de amantes de la alquimia y de la belleza de la mitología, los miembros de MonkeyBird son expertos en diseño gráfico e industrial…

Following the Tàpia collective exhibition organized by B-Murals and curated by Axel Void, three murals popped up in the city at the end of 2019 on the thematic of Neo-muralism. This active urban art movement is associated with figurative and contemporary realism, it generally aims to question our relation with society and public space. We are glad to present you here some photos of these murals by the great Fer Alcala.
