Streets of Colour
A fruitful collaboration between the artists REMED and OKUDA and the wine brand Campo Viejo continues. Coinciding with the festivity “May Bank Holiday”, held the first Monday of May in the UK, the streets of Southbank in London have been flooded with colours and passion during a set of live painting by Madrid-based artists. After the success of the previous editions of Streets of Colour, this creative union between the two artists and Campo Viejo continues bearing fruits with an unusual art action. This time REMED and OKUDA have worked inside of a cube of methacrylate of 40 cubic meters next to the Thames river in Southbank, offering to the thousands of pedestrians who have been there during the four days that have lasted the action, the unique experience of watching the artists paint in front of the public, face to face
and not turning their backs as this is usually the case when painting a wall.
The transparency of the methacrylate has allowed spectators to witness the creative process of these two vibrant artists of international renown, that as well as a year ago in London, and in other experiences in Logronio, Madrid and Brussels have offered a stimulating show with lights, colours and passion as protagonists. In the vineyards of Bodegas Campo Viejo in Logronio, REMED and OKUDA created a twenty feet high stunning sculpture inspired by the environment and the expressiveness of the wines. In the fourth edition of Streets Of Colour the two painted a truck for the Brussels Food Truck festival that has worked since then as a travelling artwork showing the colors of Campo Viejo from Brussels throughout Belgium.
The next editions of Streets of Colour will be performed on June of 2014 in Miami and Toronto.
