Urban in Ibiza at Atzaró, August 7th 2014

Cutting-edge urban fashion and street-art meet live contemporary sculpture and music in the stunning surroundings of Atzaró, Ibiza.

Bespoke tailored anarchy arrives at Atzaro tomorrow with the launch party of the island's 6th annual Urban in Ibiza fiesta. The critically acclaimed event combines different disciplines of urban art culture: paint, sculpture, fashion and music and the launch party kicks off a full 2 week long exhibition at Atzaró. The exhibition ‘Sons of Warhol' presents a large scale display of artworks from many of London West Bank Gallery's most prominent street artists such as Banksy and Goldie.

On the day of the 7th, the exhibition is combined with live painting and workshops from acclaimed contemporary spray can artists including Inkie, Fin Dac, DANK, Zeus, Ben Allen, Elmo Hood, Code FC, SOAP and Mikey Brain. Expect to see innovative use of art & electronics along with cutting edge content and audience interaction with audio-visual, virtual band performances & interactive art installations. This is all combined with the wide use of digital publishing and internet communications to link Ibiza up with millions of fans across the globe.

Fashion too is represented by the combination of fashion shows from award winning international designers and bespoke tailors such as Mark Powell with cutting edge sound and lighting artists. Powell is about to launch Ibiza's first bespoke tailor service and counts celebrities like George Clooney on his list of clients. Here's where you get a sneak preview at some of his latest skilful creations made impeccably with the finest fabrics.

And if that wasn't enough, there will be live sculpture with Gareth Knowles who will create a commissioned sculpture ‘shadowdancer' out of clay, at twice the size of his live subject. You can also expect some well-known names on the decks including DJ Andy Carroll, DJ Samir, Shovell Lovell The Drum Warrior and RIVRS.
