spidertag-fortaleza-brazil-1Madrid-based street-artist Spidertag was recently in Brazil participating of this year’s Festival Concreto for which he painted a couple of murals in the beautiful city of Fortaleza.
Nobody better to describe Spidertag’s work than the artist himself: “It´s all about nails + pure wool + geometry + abstraction + streets + abandoned” and that is actually what he usually does. Making use of nails, wool yarn, found objects Spidertag installs geometric abstractions in beautifully lonely locations, thence the name “spider” referring to his love for abandoned places.
Although the two murals here presented were painted as part of the festival in public spaces destined for this purpose we recognize Spidertag’s characteristic style adding found objects into the composition and integrating the mural to its surroundings (image above).
