Walking along a beachside promenade can be one of the most enjoyable moments of a summer day. The sun shining, the wind blowing, and the sound of waves rolling are hard to top. That is unless you add world-class graffiti and street art to the experience.
Creative heat in the Spanish sun
The Art a La Marina at the Marina de Valencia did just that. Since December 2020, 10 murals have been created in the beachside area of Marina de Valencia, making the journey through the area for tourists and locals an even greater sensory pleasure. Commissioned by the PARETS organization, Art a La Marina featured both local and international creative giants such as Felipe PANTONE, Gordo Pelota (Buenos Aires), 2Shy (Paris), Laia (Barcelona), Rosh333 (Elche, Spain), Nano4814 (Vigo, Spain), Spok Brillor (Madrid), Marta La Peña (Soria, Spain), Lets Or Not (Valencia, Spain), Marina Marco (Valencia), and Sawe (Barcelona).
Off the back of the recent spotlight Art a La Marina project in Marina de Valencia, Spain, the well-known and locally-based graffiti fine artist Felipe PANTONE, also had his chance to enhance the local scenery.
