To conclude that year, I will ask a few artists that we enjoyed at ekosystem, 11 little things about 2011.
I’m really happy to start with Zosen from Barcelona. When I think about Barcelona graffiti, my mind is full of shiny colors from Zosen & Sixe (but also from Kenor, La Mano or Pez). They really represent Barcelona style to me. So it’s a wonderful surprise to discover that fresh collaboration between Zosen & Sixe.
Zosen recently released the magazine Carcelona “20 anys a la millor botiga del mon”.
It gathers plenty of interviews with artists, activists, musicians and people of different generations who live or lived in Barcelona and have met Zosen between 1990 and 2010.
