Boamistura


Boa Mistura profile Boa Mistura is a multidisciplinary team with roots in graffiti born in 2001 in Madrid, formed by the architect Javier Serrano, the designer Pablo Ferreiro, the illustrator Pablo Purón and the graduate in Fine Arts Juan Jaume.

The term "Boa Mistura", which they adopted in 2002, means "good mix" in Portuguese and refers to the diversity of formations and points of view of each of them.

Their work takes place in public spaces and is heavily loaded with social content. They are one of the referents of Spanish Urban Art having traveled half the world using their murals to change the landscape of the communities.

One of their most internationally recognized pieces is “Die Umamung” (The Hug), a great façade which they did in Berlin honouring the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall in 2009.

Since 2010 they have been developing their “CROSSROADS” project of participatory urban art which has brought them to the townships of South Africa, the Brazilian favelas, the 'El Chorrillo' barrio in Panama… They have also work in México, Algeria, Malabo, Mexico, Belgrade, Chile, Paraguay, China, India, USA…


In Madrid they carried out the biggest display of urban art in Spain, 4,800m2, in the 'Mercado de la Cebada' and internationally have participated in the Biennale of Urbanism in Shen Zhen (2017) or the Biennale of Muralismo de Cali (2016), among others.

They have showed their work in contemporary art centres such as the Queen Sofia National Art Museum, CAC Málaga (Spain), La Casa Encendida in Madrid, the DA2 Museum at Salamanca (Spain), Weltmuseum in Wein or MAXXI Contemporary Art Museum in Rome.
