street art

In/between by Hyuro [vimeo]

Argentinian street artist Hyuro visited Copenhagen in May 2013 to do a piece on a 271 metre long wall. The piece is called “In/between” and exploits the entire length of the long wall.

Hyuro was selected in a competition held by the creative community ArtRebels in cooperation with the Municipality of Copenhagen. Proposals were submitted from all over the world from South America, US, Europe, Russia and Asia. But in the end the jury decided on Hyuro and her proposal ”In / between” as the winner.

Ørestad street art competition winner

Artrebels announced the winner of their competition: Hyuro.

Spansk kvinde skal lave det længste ’street art’ kunstværk i dansk historie

I starten af maj 2013 begynder den spanske gadekunstner Hyuro at forvandle en meget lang og kedelig mur i København til det længste stykke sammenhængende gadekunst i Danmark. Kunstværket bliver 271 meter langt og skal males på hegnet langs Bella Center i Ørestad City.

Juryens begrundelse:
Juryen valgte Hyuro “på grund af hendes evne til at skabe et poetisk, unikt og smukt kunstværk, som udnytter væggens længde til at skabe en sammenhængende bevægelse. Hyuro fortæller en historie, der passer til miljøet i Ørestaden: En kronhjort, der bevæger sig fra lys ind i det ukendte bidrager til et øjebliks undren og meditation i hverdagen for forbipasserende i bil, metro og cykel. Vi mener, det er et stærkt kunstværk, der vil tilføje positiv energi til Ørestad.”

Fra maj 2013 kan du følge udviklingen af projektet hér på Artrebels’ facebook: www.facebook.com/ArtRebels
