Edjinn – New Mural for Contorno Urbano

EDJINN recently completed a killer new wall for Contorno Urbano. Edjinn lives and works in Barcelona. He studied design in the Art School of Winchester and graphic design in the Elisava School. Illustrator and graphic designer, he’s famous for his style both naïve and satirical, as for his versatility: urban art, graffiti, illustrations, edition of the “Fine Arts” magazine, commercial works, collages, etc.

For his intervention in the April “12+1”, he told us what was the idea: “I want to contrast old people with new technologies, social networks and the new ways to interact that use young people, and the disconnection it might be for older people”. The artist also insists in that: what is important to him is that his works can stay somehow ambiguous, in order that everyone can read them their own way.

Contorno Urbano x Roc Blackblock – Project 12+1: Urban Art in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat

This month, as part of Project 12+1’s second year running, Contorno Urbano is showing a mural by Roc Blackblock, a well known Catalan artist who specialises in stenciling; an artistic technique often used in graffiti using paint and one or more stencils cut by the artist. Defining himself as an ‘all terrain’ artist, Roc Blackblock is as comfortable painting on walls as he is on paper, canvas, in digital formats, or even on skin — he also works as an illustrator and tattoo artist. More images and info after the jump!
