The small village of Penelles in Spain is a beautiful and surprising outdoor gallery, now filled with more than 100 murals (for 400 inhabitants!). The organisers of Gargar Festival invited me to take part in this year’s edition, which took place with less artists over a few weeks in August.
I painted a portrait of my friend and artist Bifido, who did some paste-ups at the festival a few years ago. The artwork depicts him wearing his traditional street art gear (hat, bag with paper and red jumper) and in full action: he’s pasting up a collage of a blue sky on the wall while looking nervously over his shoulder. Sometimes, you gotta be quick!
