NEW FEATURE: Street Art in Chile by Kelp

Posted in Art, South America with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 17, 2010 by mutate

Hola UK – I’m KELP from www.kelp.cl = Chile. A graffiti writer and entrepreneur who started graffiti writing in 1997 in Santiago de Chile by watching political murals and also graffiti masters doing their thing in Plaza Italia, downtown of Santiago. From Chiles capital I started to paint all over the country and then outside of Southamerica (Europe, Asia, USA) in which I painted with friends and slowly came to know many great people who were also creating and developing graffiti in many ways.

To get to the point I will write about chilean graffiti in short 150 word notes. Explain, show, describe, analyze everything around graffiti in Chile, directly from the streets with backup from the greatest graffiti writers, literature and live actions. Graffiti in Chile is getting worldwide recognition and you will find why, right here on a monthly basis.

Treatment rooms in action

Treatment rooms have been hard at work… come and join us for the unveiling of this amazing community mural this Wednesday 16th Dec at 7PM. The piece covers the history of the area, the events and most of all the the people.

The Revolution Will Be Ceramicised…..at least under the Westway!! This Wednesday, 16th Dec at 7pm.

Carrie Reichardt aka The Baroness and Miquita Oliver will unveil the UK’s most radical ceramic mural at Mutate Britain’s ‘One Foot Under the Grove’ exhibition. Artists from The Treatment Rooms Collective along side volunteers from the local community have spent the last few weeks making a huge new mural in a previously unused space under the Westway, next to Portobello market.

You are invited to come along and help us celebrate this important new addition of public art to one of London’s most culturally significant neighbourhoods. This mural is made in loving memory of two of our fallen comrades, Evie Doggart and Ed Maiden. We are hoping that members of their families will be present as we unveil plaques for them. We will also have a flash mob punk choir present to sing at the event. Please come along, support our work and see cutting edge craftivism in action.

With thanks Carrie Reichardt aka The Baroness Co-Founder of the Treatment Rooms – The UK’s only ceramic house of resistance. www.carriereichardt.co.uk
