The Writing on the Wall

Albert_Pinya_1

On one of your shopping excursions in Palma’s old town you may have noticed some small graffiti doodles over the last year or so, such as in Carrer Sant Feliu, Carrer Montenegro and the whole Sa Llotja district. Some of these graffiti drawings are relating the image of an insect to the word ‘god’, or the image of a four-legged animal to the word ‘spacesheep’. In case you should be interested, I can reveal the name of the artist: Albert Pinya.

It is indeed an artist who created the very precisely executed graffiti images, or so opines his gallery representative for Spain, Ferran Cano (below on the left; the artist can be seen on the right). Albert Pinya was born in Palma de Mallorca in 1985, but now lives and works in Berlin (Germany).

For those of you interested in some of Pinya’s gallery work (acrylic on canvas), here is one painting called ‘Majorca’. The artist has successfully shown his work in Milan and Turin (Italy), Chicago and New York (USA), Antwerp (Belgium), Berlin (Germany), Basel (Switzerland), Barcelona and Caceres (Spain). This is an artist we may well hear more of.
