Sabek, from Madrid for the Rexenera Fest
His work can be found in galleries in Spain, France or the United States, as well as on monumental walls around the world
Sabek (1985) is a Spanish artist, who starts and develops most of his professional career in Madrid. We are fortunate enough for him to come to the Rexenera Fest 2020 (between July 16 and 26) to paint a large format mural in Carballo. His firsts steps in urban art are interventions in the streets and abandoned places in Madrid suburbs, where he lays the foundations of his particular style in the early years of the 2000s. Over time he evolves towards the production of more figurative works and he begins to experiment with different techniques in addition to his street work.
His style is characterized by the representation of strong shapes and colors that allude to a natural origin, especially in those noble and powerful animals that instill a strong sense of respect. He portrays a mixture of subtlety and power in perfect balance with the shades and masses of flat colors that he uses in an almost symbolic aspect. They coexist perfectly with the most refined details.
Human being and nature
His work raises a reflection about the human being and his relationship with nature; the animal representation shows the allegory between the natural balance and the energies implicit in it through minimalist vegetable and human forms.
His work can be found in galleries in Spain, France or the USA, as well as on monumental walls around the world (USA, France, Spain, Malaysia, Russia or New Zealand).
