For this year’s edition of Gargar festival (postponed to September for obvious reasons), the small village of Penelles in Catalunya has invited a group of local and international artists to paint various of its murals, in addition to the already existing 100 murals (for 400 inhabitants!) painted the previous years. With three exhibitions and different public events, the program included ten interventions from artists showing the diversity and variety of style urban art can offer: Slimsafont showing the impact of the festival itself on the life of the village, Zabou doing a tribute to paste-up art and a fellow artist, the cartoon-graffiti style of Oreo, JayBisual and Zeso, the artwork of Berni Puig doing a pictorial reinterpretation of the map of Penelles in the church of the village, and more.. Here is a summary of these interventions.
