Ibiza gets graffiti this summer as Urban in Ibiza hits the White Isle for the first time ever.

Prepare yourself for a visual feast this August with the anticipated arrival of URBAN IN IBIZA.

Never has Ibiza seen such a spectacular before with the world’s leading Grafitti artists displaying their work on the Island from 8th to 20th August culminating in a live art display by two of the UK’s most notorious graffiti writers INKIE & CHU. Heralding from the infamous Bristol School of Graffiti, Inkie has been identified as Banksy’s partner in crime. A dominant presence of over twenty years on the international graffiti scene, Inkie’s trademark intricate imagery is uniquely striking with styles drawn from diverse inspiration, ubiquitous street signage, the architecture of ancient temples and Islamic geometry.

For Urban in Ibiza, Inkie has selected a cross-section of the UK’s leading street artists to showcase work of this kind in Ibiza for the first time:

Goldie, Pure Evil, Inkie, Chu, Zeus, Mysterious Al, China Mike, Mudwig, Mau Mau, Andy Council, SHOK-1, Fark FK, Finbarr DAC will all showcase a selection of their work from 8th – 13th August at the suitably glamourous Atzaro hotel in Ibiza, and then from the legendary Pacha Hotel from 13th – 20th August. More exciting urban artists to be revealed shortly!

On 12th August, Atzaro plays host to a celebration of the exhibition in their beautiful gardens with Inkie creating one of his master-pieces live over the stunning flood-lit pool, reflecting such a special event on the Island. This one-off piece will then be auctioned-off during the night. Entertainment for the evening will be provided by credible, infamous urban musicians:
Roots Manuva (live), DJ MK (Kiss FM), DJ Samir and Benji Boko.

Entrance is free and this exclusive first ever Urban event will run from 8pm – 2am.

Celebrated fashion designer Dan Macmillan will be showing some of his rare pieces from his Zoltar label. This is a night and an art extravaganza not to be missed.
