Festival de #RegalosUrbanos

Today in Madrid artists took to the streets. There were expositions set up all along Calle Principe and other nearby side streets. It was a street art project called Regalos Urbanos organized by La Galleria de Magdalena. Passerby’s could interact with the art and even take home parts of the project as gifts. Unfortunately, by the time I had made my rounds to each section, a lot of the artwork had already been taken. I really enjoyed the interactive wall of magazine cutouts. They had cut out different words, phrases and even pictures which were magnetic; anyone could leave behind a message. Another great project was #besamemucho, red stamped prints of the female genitalia which played with perception, created a buzz and some great discussions about femininity. I hope to see more projects like this around the city.
