In Madrid they carried out the biggest display of urban art in Spain, 4,800m2, in the 'Mercado de la Cebada' in Madrid. They were invited artists at the 2012 and 2013 editions of MULAFEST, the Madrid Festival of Urban Trends, and participated also in the Venice Biennale, the Biennale of Southern Panama and La Nuit Blanche of Paris (2014). 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 or the DA2 Museum at Salamanca (Spain).
