(FIX/Ibiza/Thurs 22 Aug 2013):

After what has been an intense 8 month long journey of proposals, preparations and paintings, URBAN IN IBIZA: Sons of Warhol is finally coming to the end of another island takeover with its ultimate event of 2013 taking place this Friday 23rd August at Ocean Beach Club, San Antonio. Set to be another roaring success for the organisers of the event, and in particular its creator, Paul Dizzi Saunders, this is the second time that Urban in Ibiza has presented its street art collection at the San An location and in an exciting, new collaboration, organisers are also pleased to announce that Société Perrier have also come on board the Urban in Ibiza Tour Bus (Yes, we have a Tour Bus!), in what hopes to be the start of a beautiful relationship between the two brands. And the link between the two- none other than the man who initiated the pop art movement in the 60s and remains a vital reference in the art world in the present day. He is Andy Warhol.

In 1983, Andy Warhol created over 40 works of art inspired by the iconic Perrier bottle. This year, to celebrate Perrier’s 150th anniversary, the brand has reconnected with the legendary artist through the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, presenting exclusive limited-edition Perrier packaging based on Warhol’s brilliant art, and which the Société Perrier team will present to guests at Ocean Beach Club throughout the event on Friday.

Back at the Urban in Ibiza camp and, having long since been a fan of Warhol’s work, Saunders wanted to capture some of that essence and philosophy and bring it to his own Art-Fashion-Music concept.  Saunders says, “Andy Warhol has always been someone I have admired. I feel street art emulates that Warhol quirk and ‘Sons Of Warhol’ is a term I’ve always used to describe our school of street artists. Plus, with Warhol’s birthday/anniversary falling on the same month as the Urban In Ibiza events this year, I decided it was the perfect opportunity to roll out the name”.

Taking all that into account, then, and it’s plain to see why Société Perrier and Urban in Ibiza’s joining of forces for the Ocean Beach event is a pretty apt one. The French mineral water brand will be present at the event, with surprises, giveaways and of course, plenty of sparkling water to cool the crowd down, including a number of their limited edition Andy Warhol bottles for the lucky/thirsty ones.

Back to the art, and the Urban in Ibiza exhibition at Ocean Beach includes works by Schoony, My Dog Sighs, Adam Bricusse, Snik, John Tracey, K Guy, Hornsleth, Ben Allen, Chad Muska, Dan Kitchener (DANK), Banksy, Elmo Hood, Zeus, Fin Dac, Henry Hate, Inkie, Pure Evil, Chapter and Milo. 

A special mention should go out to Schoony, whose works of art are constant fixtures in Urban in Ibiza exhibitions. With a background rooted in special effects and prosthetics for the film industry in a career spanning over twenty years, he took the plunge into a new career as an artist to share his passion for life cast sculpture. Schoony soon took the London art scene by storm in 2008 with his life cast sculptures ‘Boy Soldiers’, one of whom currently features in box office smash, Kick Ass 2.

For Urban in Ibiza: Sons of Warhol, he has created a life cast masterpiece, a little brother for his Boy Soldiers, Urban in Ibiza’s mascot for 2013. We present The Son of Warhol, a work of art so realistic you will need to look twice.

Also back for the Ocean Beach event, American photographer/artist and curator John Tracey will make a personal appearance presenting his SK8 Art St collection as part of the works on show. Apart from that, other most definite highlights of this event include a live paint by a vital component in Urban’s history- Bristol artist, Inkie this time joined by massively rising star, Dank, whose paintings at the Atzaro Exhibition were amongst the most popular. Mexican artist Henry Hate’s showstopper is also taking pride of place at Ocean Beach Club and keep eyes open for local artist Chapter’s contribution to the show. We could go on and on and on but the truth is, each and every work of art at Urban in Ibiza: Sons of Warhol deserves a massive shout out.  Or, you could just come see for yourself!

The crème de la crème of the international street art scene- right there, one more day/night only, at Ocean Beach Club, this Friday 23 August.

URBAN IN IBIZA: EL ARTE URBANO AMERICANO, LOS HIJOS DE WARHOL

SOW Logo K. Thomas

La 5ª edición de Urban in Ibiza se celebrará el 1 de agosto en Atzaró y el 23 del mismo mes en Ocean Beach Club
Otras adiciones: El taller de arte para niños ‘Mini Markers’ el 30 de julio y un espontáneo ‘Live Painting’ en Ibiza Rocks el 31 de julio
Arte urbano por un tubo: Shepard Fairey, John Tracy, Chad Muska, Bam Margera… Y británico: Banksy, Mau Mau, Fin Dac, Ryan Callanan, My Dog Sighs, Inkie…
Y la moda – Tom Van der Borght, White Ibiza, desfilando 

Ibiza, 18 de julio 2013 (FIX Ibiza).- El arte cobra en la ya quinta edición de Urban in Ibiza una relevancia especial con la presencia de artistas internacionales como Shepard Fairey. A este californiano le conocemos por el retrato de Barack Obama con la leyenda ‘Hope’, que fue utilizado por el presidente durante la primera y victoriosa campaña electoral. Pero la trayectoria de este artista urbano y diseñador gráfico abarca mucho más, en un marco creativo extenso y reconocido en el que destacan los elementos del cartelismo de propaganda política de mediados del siglo pasado.

ARTE
Shepard traerá a Ibiza obras relevantes y nuevas,  para en esta ocasión atender a dos ediciones iguales pero diferentes de Urban in Ibiza para celebrar por todo lo alto que en 2013 cumplimos 5 años. Las fechas: 1 de agosto en Atzaró y 23 de agosto en Ocean Beach Club.

Pero hay más. Se confirma la adición de otros artistas norteamericanos incluidos en el proyecto expositivo SK8 Art St, con un comisario como el fotógrafo John Tracy –relacionado sentimentalmente con Pamela Anderson y otros personajes singulares como uno de los Jackass, Bam Margera, o el renombrado skater Chad Muska.

Regresan grandes artistas de anteriores ediciones de Urban in Ibiza, convertidos ya en grandes amigos, y joven talento, representando el futuro. Encuentra piezas urbanas para diferentes espacios, para todos los públicos y bolsillos de la mano de Banksy, David Walker, Mau Mau, Fin Dac, Inkie, Snik, Schoony, Ben Allen, Dan Kitchener aka DANK, Jim Vision, Ben Slow, Henry Hate, Pure Evil, Rowan Newton, My Dog Sighs, Kristian Hornsleth, K Guy, Goldie, Nick Walker, Ryan Callanan aka RYCA, Milo, Copyright, Gemma Compton, Jim Starr, Elmo Hood, Lauren Baker, Chapter, Zeus, Nicolas Dixon, Sequin Kay, Adam Bricusse.

Urban in Ibiza utiliza en esta edición el nombre de ‘Sons of Warhol’. Una descripción que ya hace años empleó un veterano artista de Ibiza al descubrir la colección de arte urbano de Paul Dizzi Saunders, director de Urban in Ibiza y propietario de la galería londinense Westbank Gallery (www.londonwestbank.com). Con el añadido artístico americano en 2013, la expresión cobra pleno significado.

La exposición de Urban in Ibiza se mantendrá en Atzaró del 1 al 8 de agosto.

MODA

Y por supuesto, moda. Urban in Ibiza aglutina disciplinas y la moda es siempre una de ellas. Este año, el desfile lo encabeza el belga Tom Van der Borght, mostrando su colección Otoño/Invierno 13/14, llamada ‘Aponycalypse’ y recientemente premiada con el ‘Premium Young Designer Award 2013’ en la Berlin Fashion Week.

Además, y tras su reciente y exitoso lanzamiento de una boutique online, con una exquisita selección de prendas que exteriorizan de manera sublime la esencia de Ibiza, White Ibiza desfilará también por la pasarela de Atzaró, el próximo jueves 1 de agosto con marcas como la americana L *Space o la brasileña ViX Swimwear, entre otras.

MÚSICA

El DJ y productor inglés Benji Boko repite este año porque Urban in Ibiza se merece sesiones chifladas como las suyas, con un enérgico hip hop de fondo. Se suman al cartel MC Carpetface y los DJs Samir, Yuniq, Gianluca de Tiberiis y Tony Montana.

GOING FOR GOLDIE!

 

‘URBAN IN IBIZA’ IS BACK FOR AN OLYMPIC EDITION OF STREET ART


The island’s prestigious urban art event takes place on Thurs 9th Aug, whilst the exhibition runs from 5th – 31st August in Atzaró, Ibiza

Graffiti master/drum n bass pioneer Goldie amongst artists confirmed to attend

Music and fashion once again playing a major role in the annual showcase

IBIZA, 30th July, 2012 (FIX Ibiza).- In the four short years of URBAN IN IBIZA’S existence, there is no denying that it has already grown to become one of the key events on the Ibiza Calendar, drawing hundreds of urban and street art lovers to the most talked about rural hotel on the island- Atzaró, in the glorious hills of Sant Joan.

The brainchild of entrepreneur, gallerist and general gent about town, Paul Dizzi Saunders, this year’s main event takes place on 9th August, although the exhibition runs from 5th– 31st August in the AtzaróGallery in the north of the island of Ibiza.

Never one to shy away from hard work, this year Saunders has put together an unmatched selection of international street artists, bringing them together under the one umbrella- or should that be parasol- of Urban in Ibiza 4.

This year’s showcase can only merit even more applause with the star turn of URBAN IN IBIZA 2012 confirmed as acclaimed artist/drum & bass pioneer/actor/general genius GOLDIE, who will be, for the first time, at the event in person alongside his work in the grounds of the Sant Joan rural hotel.

Goldie, named in the BBC’s list of New Elizabethans — the 60 Britons who have ‘illuminated’ the Queen of England’s reign since her coronation in 1953, recently unveiled a stunning portrait of the Queen for her Diamond Jubilee, and in an exclusive Ibiza moment, the piece will be on show when Goldie makes his first appearance at Urban in Ibiza, with a limited numbers of prints for sale.

Goldie had this to say on the whole thing, “It’s gonna be fantastic to return to the white rock as an artistic exhibiting at Urban in Ibiza and DJing at an intimate after party. It’s gonna be that special, I’m leaving my UK Olympic show in London for the private view and then flying to New York straight after the after-party! Peace…”

Alongside him and keeping with the Jubilee theme, AGENT PROVOCATEUR is back at Urban, with amongst his exhibition pieces, another reference to dear old Majesty in her diamond years.

But it’s not just all about the red white and blue. Irish by origin, artist by choice, the creator of last year’s URBAN IN IBIZA live painting, FIN DAC is back for more, having recently completed a graffiti tour of Colombia swiftly followed by a commission at the Olympic Village for London 2012.

From the depths of Facebook, the had this to say about his return to the island- “After showing my work at the first 2 Urban In Ibiza events, I was thrilled last year to be able to attend in person, paint live and soak up the atmosphere and energy of, what is now, an iconic Ibizan event. That said, as good as last year was, I think this year is going to be utterly off-the-hook… and I for one am not going to miss it.”

Just two corkin’ examples of a long list of international artists whose work will be on show at Urban in Ibiza 2012…oh! And did we mention BANKSY?! It’s a big up and a bit of a coup for the organisers of Urban this year, with some of the works of illustrious graffiti artist/political activist/film director/painter, Banksy, showing in the exhibition for the first time.

Over the past years, Urban in Ibiza has become the reference for graffiti/street/art on the island, and bearing in mind that this is an island of EDM, that’s quite an achievement. Highlights over the last years include a live performance from Roots Manuva, fashion from Dirty Pretty Things and a list of artists that, to the trained eye, can only be heralded as magnificent- Inkie, David Walker, Ben Slow, K Guy and Shoe amongst them.

The full line up for 2012 Urban in Ibiza Gallery: GOLDIE, BANKSY, DAVID WALKER, INKIE, CHRIS BRACEY, FIN DAC, K-GUY, MAU MAU, SCHOONY, REMI ROUGHE, BEN ALLEN, PURE EVIL, CALM & COLLECTED, COPYRIGHT, LILLIWEN, KID ACNE, KASHINK, WILL BARRAS, RYCA, BEN SLOW, CHU, STEFF PLAETZ, ZEUS, MYSTERIOUS AL, CEPT, NICK WALKER, MILO, AGENT PROVOCATEUR, FLORENCE BLANCHARD, SECRET MONKEY, OTTO SCHNADE, ROWAN NEWTON, MR.TRAZO, CHRISTIAN HORNSLEF, RICHARD ZARZI, MASAI, ZINA, CHEBA & GONNY VAN HULST, PINO

Saunders had this to say on the upcoming show, “Something tells me this edition will be the best yet – everyone is very charged up and excited about it. It really will be an attack on all the senses and definitely a night to remember; it’s great that the exhibition stays up until the end of the month, giving people a chance to come and take it all in properly.”

Apart from the art, fashion and music also make up a substantial part of the annual event. This year, the catwalk belongs to MADAME V, KASHCA and HAZEL CROWNEY whilst as far as the soundtrack is concerned, it’s another stonkin’ combination of live music and DJs, the combination of which, if previous years are anything to go by, will surely keep the party on its dancing feet long into the wee small hours. Already confirmed on the live side of things, BUGGSY, SHOVELL, DOGZ OR GODZ, CARPETFACE & ILLITERATE and HOT ICE are pleased to serve the Urban in Ibiza crowd.

As far as the DJs on the night are concerned, it’s yet another first for the Urban in Ibiza, with the confirmation of All Saints’ MEL BLATT making her DJing debut at the do. SAMIR and DJ YUNIQ will join Blatt, who recently became a full-time resident of the island. Between the three of them, expect only quality tuneage- an eclectic selection that hs hip hop as its staple and everything else as the compliments.

All that and much more, taking place in and around the grounds of one of the island’s most breathtaking rural hotels, hidden in the north of Ibiza and a work of art itself- Atzaro- the perfect canvas for Urban in Ibiza 2012.
