The 12+1 Project has kicked off for another year with a brand new mural in the heart of Barcelona. Situated at the Centre Civic Cotxeres Borrell this latest mural will see hundreds if not thousands of passers by each day.
The artwork: Perspectivas y vacíos
The plans, shapes and colours make this composition an invitation to look up and interpret the space. The work “Perspectivas y vacíos” represents a meeting scenario. Perspectives and precision evoke the city full of geometry and movement.
Anna Taratiel was born in Barcelona and first had contact with the art world through graffiti under the artistic name of OVNI (UFO in Spanish). She studied graphic design at the University School of Steam of Terrassa and graduated in mural techniques at the Llotja de Barcelona. Her work evokes internal landscapes and raises metaphorical reflections on the environment. This is expressed through geometric abstraction, provoking emotions and pulsing the viewer’s perception through the intense relationship. Compositive, conceptual, technical- that she maintains with space and colour. Mental cartographies that acquire material life to deal, from the visual misunderstanding, with the ideas of structure, pattern and variation, or with the boundary between the bi and three-dimensional.
The 12+1 is an initiative of the Contorno Urbano Foundation that wants to bring urban art closer to people, breaking with the stereotypes and prejudices that surround this artistic expression. Throughout each month there is a great variety of expressions and materials that can be observed in the murals.
