You rarely see any videos of Peter ROA painting, below is one. And here is a video interview with the Belgian, but you better check his art, for instance his murals in Mexico and his installation at black rat projects. We need more animals and decay!
Besides doing walls, Tec is known for his cheering imagery at children hospitals (“Hospital de Niños”). Also catch the fire by watching the trailer for his Ruta 9 movie – a documentary about Argentinian wall paintings.
About Jote “Creating I am trying above all to respect the spirit of the place. It is for me particularly important because surroundings are one of components of the structure of my works. On architecturalisation of space influences a game of the colour, shapes, lines. I’m trying to find the meaning in the space in which very plain can create that space. Minimalist in its expression forms fit well in the industrial space. This creates the impression that the plane image is intertwined with the environment.” The photos are from his ‘letters’ series.
