Klein-Schreuder Sculpture Garden

Will Coles: Street Art

coles270The last decade has seen the street art phenomenon explode across the world. Uncommissioned installations to some, illegal graffiti to others. Call it what you like, but it is seen as the most democratic art movement ever. From back alleys to up-market city galleries it has changed the way we access art. Names like Banksy, Basquiat and Haring are now major art investments, often worth millions of dollars.

Will Coles is seen as one of the main sculptural street artist provocateurs in the world. He recently moved from Sydney, Australia to Callosa d'en Sarrià (Alicante) and has been "installing" free art in the region and beyond.

His work can also be seen on the streets of Berlin, Hamburg, London, Paris, Barcelona and other major cities in different continents, but is also in major public collections in Australia and Europe. His work is made to be seen, not hidden in commercial galleries. Now that he lives here, he wants to exhibit here.

"The space at the sculpture garden really gives my bigger sculptures room to breathe," Will says. "But even if you can´t come, you can see my less-than-legal sculptures from Alicante to Barcelona."

Will Coles exhibits Street Art in the Klein-Schreuder Sculpture Garden until the 9th of April. The inauguration with a vino de honor is on the 26th of February at 11 am.

During the exhibition the smaller items can simultaneously be seen in the Fundación Frax in Albir.
