Bloop Proactive Arts Festival, Ibiza, has kicked off in fine style and will be continue to paint the white isle all the way through to August 14th 2013. It is the first proactive arts festival in the world, where artists will work with the natural beauty of Ibiza’s surroundings, reflecting this year’s theme of Control.
The first large mural (below) to open the event has been created by Phlem, who painted an incredibly detailed depiction of a controlled robot taking a close look at jars filled with people, animals, and parts. The graffiti wall painting takes over a six story apartment building in Sant Antoni.
The Bloop Museum and the festival’s headquarters based at Far Des Coves Blanques, Sant Antoni, has received curious and creative visitors who have seen works by Pineapple Crocodile, Emilio Cejalvo, Xavi’s Lab, Montse Nadal, Silva Ramacci, Lo Spino and Tom Gallant.
