The first edition of Urvanity Art Fair, the first fair celebrating New Contemporary and Urban Art in Spain, has been getting a great response from the audience. In addition to the impressive exhibition program, the fair has also contributed to the city with new Madrid murals. With the support of Tuenti, the collaboration of Montana Colors, Pintura Revetón and Landmefar, and the co-production of Urvanity Art and Madrid Street Art Project, Urvanity has invited five international artists to paint different murals that have become part of the city of Madrid´s artistic heritage. Ben Eine, Jason Woodside, L'Atlas, PREF, MESA and Mohammed Lghacham have all created stunning pieces that perfectly complement their surroundings. We have caught up with all the artists to check out their amazing works.

Brought by StolenSpace Gallery, Jason Woodside has been painting a mural in Ronda de Segovia street. His colorful piece perfectly plays with the curviness of the wall. Made next to the traffic, it also works well with the transient.
Coming back to Madrid for the second time after 1999, L’Atlas created a mural in one of the most interesting street art spots in the city, inside the Campo de la Cebada. Placed on a huge white wall, the piece was made in his unique and recognizable lettering style, spelling his moniker.
Just around the corner from L’Atlas, MESA and Mohammed Lghacham created a stunning diptych mural. Playing with cold and warm colors, they have created a piece that shows scenes from everyday life. It also translates the atmosphere of Almodovar and the spirit of Madrid and its people. This the second collaboration between these two talented artists brought by PDP Gallery.
PREF created a piece in Calle Almendro. Painting in this old neighborhood that is a mix of different people, he wanted to create something that sends a positive message. The piece features his unique layered typography.
