LOCAL COLOUR South London Street Art Framed Up

BienalOff, the alternative offshoot of Lanzarote’s 8th Bienal Art event gets underway this week, with an eclectic new exhibition in Arrecife that features the work of the South London born street artist Rowan Newton.

Newtown’s large scale, spray and oil based artworks are heavily influenced by the gritty, graffiti daubed streets of his childhood stomping ground in Brixton, with heavy emphasis on bright colours and bold imagery. And his work has been shown internationally to wide acclaim from New York to Shanghai as well as at the London ArtFair and the House of Commons.

From tomorrow January 15th, tourists can take in his canvasses for free at the new Muaré exhibition, alongside the creations of a whole raft of emerging young artists, such as Elena Ardanaz and Oscar Marin Repoller. Which is being staged at the Sala El Quirofano, located at the Centro Sociocultural de La Vega in Calle Alonso Cano in Arrecife. Tomorrow’s inauguration takes place at 20.00 and Muaré runs until February 5th.
