Discovering cities, embracing the architecture from the perspective of a painter, a skater or a graffiti writer is different, because they none of them would go to the same places as a typical tourist or traveler.
The way of observing their surrounding is different: every corner is a potential spot, an inspiration or something that leads to a new idea. It could be a new board trick or a way to scan the different structures and colours of those particular surfaces.

As someone who’s into painting, skateboarding and writing, you look for nichesand read the surfaces of buildings. You try to define the potential of theses urban landscapes.
Each surface is an opportunity to re-imagine or redefine it.

This brings us to the concept of how we thought about our project in Logroño, how can we intervene, how can we occupy or reclaim the city by applying our philosophy.
Where skaters, writers or artists are relates to where life is.
We saw this so many times already, areas that were abandoned that didn’t have much quality of life about them, there we were always the first people to discover the potential and to improvise and make the best out of it on a limited budget. All theses social micro interventions can’t really be planed, they grow naturally point to the potential of the location.
The creativity and endurance to try again and again, to fail, to make mistakes and to eventually achieve your goals. To be open to learning and enduring. The loyalty, cohesion, the exchange, it’s all a part of a philosophy that we absorbed by being part of the graffiti and skateboard scenes. This was supplemented and enhanced by our work as artists.

With this project we would like to give something back, to find the potential of this area in Logroño, to hopefully bring life back to this place. We want do this with our work ie. via the power of color. We want to broadcast the idea that this place is more than just a parking lot…

Arcades sobre Arcades

Posted by SB on August 10th 2021

Tropics Paris released our latest screen-print edition, that was carefully printed on a 50×70 cm format by Le Mont-Presse in Paris.

The story of the artwork starts in São Luís, Maranhão, Brazil, earlier this year 2021.
It is actually a version of the wall painting: »Poetry of views: arcades upon arcades«, which was part of an exhibition at Chão slz together with Marcia de Aquino curated by Dinho araujo in January 2021.

This work is a very personal one, which brings back plenty of beautiful memories of friendship and inspiration. Can’t wait to be back to see all my dear friends over there. Thank you all for the love and support during my last stay.

Saudade!
