Urban in Ibiza: Sons of Warhol celebrates final island event on Friday 23 Aug at Ocean Beach Club with Société Perrier on board

Amongst the exhibition pieces, work from Banksy, Schoony, Pure Evil, My Dog Sighs, Snik, Fin Dac and John Tracy. Live Paint by Inkie and Dank

 

(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 5 PRESENTS ‘SONS OF WARHOL’: UNDER A STAR STENCILLED BANNER|

Image

 

CELEBRATING ITS 5TH YEAR AS IBIZA’S URBAN ART FORERUNNER AT ATZARó 1 AUG AND OCEAN BEACH CLUB 23 AUG
AMERICAN ARTISTS CONFIRMED AS SHEPARD FAIREY, JOHN TRACY, BAM MARGERA & CHAD MUSKA


(FIX/ IBIZA/17 JULY 2013) :  As Ibiza summer events go, it’s safe to say that ever since it first exploded onto the calendar in 2009, URBAN IN IBIZA is definitely up there on the Best of the Best List. This year, and what with the team behind the art-music-fashion extravaganza getting ready to celebrate their 5th birthday already (baby’s growin’ up…), this latest edition is set for starry, starry heights with not only a number of dates and venues confirmed but also, a wealth of both exclusive art & international artists all confirmed to take part in this Urban in Ibiza’s fifth celebration of their love of urban art, music and fashion.

The principal dates already set in stone for this edition are 1 Aug at Agroturismo Atzaró23 Aug at Ocean Beach Club and 31 July when Urban in Ibiza pops up for a live paint at Ibiza Rocks Hotel. Add to that the 30 July being set aside for the Mini Markers- a kids street art workshop at Atzaro plus the fact that the Urban in Ibiza exhibition itself runs at Atzaró Gallery until 8 Aug before being shipped off to San Antonio’s Ocean Beach Club, and it’s a veritable month long urbantastic explosion.

The mahoosive news for the urbanistas this time round is the fact that event owner and director Paul Dizzi Saunders has confirmed the acquisition of a number of exclusive works at the events by a number of high profile American artists including the internationally recognised Shepard Fairey, man behind Obey Giant.

Fairey’s name is a familiar one to any aficionado of contemporary urban/street art, his reputation having catapulted to a stellar level in 2008 when his ‘Hope’ portrait of Barack Obama became the iconic image of the presidential campaign and helped inspire an unprecedented political movement. The original image now hangs in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. At this year’s Urban in Ibiza, Shepard Fairey unveils some original 2013 work, and this, make no mistake about it, is ‘a HUGE deal’ by any standards.

Image

Representing Skate and Street, the work of Jackass’ Bam Margera and world renowned skater Chad Muska both form part of the SK8 Art St exhibition within an exhibition at Urban in Ibiza this year with fellow artist and curator John Tracy the obvious choice for a personal appearance at the event. ‘SK8 ART ST’ is a skateboarding / street art concept which takes a long look at skate culture and the transformation of skate related objects and paraphernalia into functional and fine artworks.

Aside from the U.S contingent, expect a long list of art and artists including several old faithfuls and a number of young newbies. To date, this year’s Urban in Ibiza will feature the works (and many of them exclusively) of 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 and if we know Dizzi Saunders, probably a few more squeezed in along the way…

Between them all, a celebration of street art, of skate, of urban culture and lifestyle. And that’s not to mention the fashion, the music and the kids’ workshop.

Image

As per every year, Urban In Ibiza’s organisers are planning to wow with a catwalk show par excellence, this year led by Belgian designer and winner of the ‘Premium Young Designer Award 2013’ at Berlin Fashion Week, urban fashion designer Tom Van der Borght. Showcasing his award-winning  AW 13/14 collection ‘Aponycalypse’, Tom’s wild creations are the missing pieces of the Urban In Ibiza puzzle for 2013, we kid you not. Get ready for a catwalk show that simply screams Urban.

Warming up the catwalk and the crowd, Urban in Ibiza are also delighted to bring White Ibiza on board. After the successful launch of a new online Ibiza fashion boutique earlier this year, the fashion and style experts from White Ibiza are teaming up with Urban in Ibiza to bring their online brands onto the catwalk!

Smelling salts at the ready, it’s White Ibiza’s selection of this summer’s hottest swimwear styles, from hot US label L*Space and Brazilian brand ViX Swimwear among others that will have the crowd’s attention. Think fabulous fringing, wild patterns, mismatched prints, tribal embellishments and edgy hardware – these bikinis are anything but tame, echoing Ibiza’s eclectic yet chic style stakes. Attention grabbing stiff, just the way the Urbanistas like it…

Musically, it’s never a dull affair at Urban in Ibiza and this 5th Anniversary promises to prove just that. Fans of past editions will know the name of Benji Boko rather well, and the English DJ/Producer is back again to get the party well and truly started with his kooky remixes and energetic hip hop mash up sessions. He’s joined by MC Carpetface and DJs Samir, Yuniq, GianLuca de Tiberiis and Tony Montana plus special performances TBC. Extra good news on the music front, with Atzaró’s extended licencing hours meaning that we can make sweet urban music until 4a.m for the first time in Urban’s history at the gorgeous rural hotel hideaway.

As per every edition, Urban in Ibiza loves getting the kids involved. Lined up for their junior art experience this time around, Urban in Ibiza presents Mini Markers, a Street Art workshop with one of Europe’s top Graffiti artists Tom ‘Inkie’ BingleThe workshop is devised for 6-14 year olds and takes place on 30July from 12- 2.30pm again at Atzaró. With a set price per child of 25€, leave your budding Sons of Warhol to get their creative flow on, whilst you parents relax and enjoy lunch at Sant Joan’s jewel in the crown, Agroturismo Atzaró. And with Junior’s masterpiece coming home with him/her, best make a space on the mantelpiece. Booking is essential and can be done by mailing: charlotte@londonwestbank.com

So. To sum up. Art- Fashion- Music. Put it all together and what have you got except one great big, brilliant celebration of Urban Lifestyle.

Image

FIX//Ibiza//29th Aug 2012

Following hot on the heels of the recent success of Urban in Ibiza’s fourth edition at Atzaro Rural Hotel, and due to public demand, organisers of the island’s renowned urban art extravaganza- URBAN IN IBIZA- have confirmed one final pit stop in Ibiza before setting off for the next destination on their international tour.

Ocean Beach Club- San Antonio’s summer success story- is the venue confirmed for the one-day event that takes place this Friday 31st August from 4pm –midnight.

In keeping with Urban in Ibiza’s philosophy, this surprise happening- aptly named SUB-URBAN- will be showcasing its’ three great loves – art, music and fashion – only this time, they’ll be doing it all within the 6000sq.m that make up Ocean Beach Club.

For those unfamiliar with the name, Urban in Ibiza is an annual showcase/party held annually at leading rural hotel, Atzaro, in Sant Joan, Ibiza.

Over the last four years, Urban in Ibiza has become undoubtedly one of the highlights of the Ibiza summer calendar, bringing together a wealth of urban art talent that, quite simply, is unmatched in the urban art world and which includes some of the greatest urban artists of our time. Amongst artists showing at this latest exhibition: Banksy, Goldie, Inkie, Fin Dac, Agent Provocateur, Pure Evil, Jim Vision, Mr. Trazo, Schoony, Ben Slow, Cept and many more.

As far as this final fling at Ocean Beach Club is concerned, organisers will be exhibiting a select number of the urban art pieces from the 2012 show including its star attractions – Goldie’s recent portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and Banksy’s ‘Barcode Leopard’. These and the other pieces in the show are available for sale.

DJs at the do are confirmed as Gianluca de Tiberis, Tom Crane, Samir and Dave Lubin. Island band Hot Ice are also confirmed for a repeat of their recent Urbantastic show, which included a spine-tingling performance from the local 30-piece gospel choir.

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.
