Urban art recovers six environments of the city with the show 'BenidormExpone'
'BenidormExpone' is a proposal of the councils of Culture and Urban Scene that focuses on creativity and art to dynamize culturally public spaces, recovering them for the enjoyment of citizenship. With this purpose, the City Council has proposed to six different artists, referents in urban art, the creation of two separate murals that make up the exhibition that can be visited, simply walking through its streets, in six different enclaves of the city.
The mayor of Benidorm, Toni Pérez, together with the councilor of Culture, Ana Pellicer, and the curator of 'BenidormExpone', Alicia Lamarca, have toured today, together with the creators, the streets of the urban center where five of the murals have been painted.
With 'BenidormExpone', art and culture are brought closer to the street, "said Toni Pérez, who pointed out that the works have allowed" the recovery of spaces that were degraded and that have gained in value with the performance ". For her part, Ana Pellicer has invited citizens to come and enjoy 'BenidormExpone' because all the works "have been created by artists with capital letters". Painters have placed their murals throughout the urban environment. Misterpro has acted in El Murtal tunnel; Sabek, in Plaza de Toros; Kaufman, on Herrerías street; Mireia Castillo, on Sol Street; Silvia Viana, in Los Gatos; and Hunter87, on Mayor Street.
With this initiative of the councils of Culture and Urban Scene, the artists disseminate their work among the more than 10 million tourists who visit the city every year and citizens recover degenerated spaces with the passage of time.
