Truck Art Project is an original project of artistic patronage driven by businessman and collector Jaime Colsa, intended to compose a particular collection of Spanish contemporary art, no owner, in which the monumental media works are the trucks that work with their company.
The initiative thus becomes a living showcase of the latest trends in painting, drawing and urban art in our country (although the ambitious program intends to show even more multidisciplinary involving other techniques such as photography, music or film), away from the white cube and destined to a receiver that is not the usual contemporary art in contexts that either are favorable.
The result is a collection of mobile art that challenges the artist to deal with starting scales and budgets that had not attended and probably before that transforms us into involuntary and fleeting viewers of the artwork.
The drive along Spain’s highways just got a lot more colorful for thousands of motorists lucky enough to glimpse one of ten semi-trucks decorated with murals by artists like Javier Arce, Okuda San Miguel, Daniel Muñoz and Marina Vargas. A total of 100 artworks are planned for the ‘Truck Art Project,’ a cultural program bringing vivid street art stylings to public places where they normally wouldn’t be seen.
Spain’s Graffiti artists participated in a project, where they were provided with an unusual canvas – freighter trucks. The project’s idea is to bring street art to the spaces where you wouldn’t expect to find it.
So keep Your eyes open for street art everywhere, because next time it just might be following You.
