A short while ago, Spanish street artist El Tono did another smart urban art experiment, which brings the street into the gallery!
The guy, who is famous worldwide for his abstract street paintings, installed whitewashed glass panels in the city of Coruña. The idea behind was, that people who past by that white wall, should scratch into its surface and create in this way a unique street artwork. And his plan worked!
“This is another experiment like Pubblico, Coriandoli or El Autotono where the final result of the artwork is completely dependent on pedestrian interaction. In this project the basis of my interest and observation was the combination of random organic drawings with my clean, calculated designs. People drew with their fingers slowly revealing my hidden images.” (El Tono)
Here are some impressions of that great experiment:
