They believe in Art for change. Inspiring people through collaborative processes working in public spaces.
“We are a multidisciplinary team with roots in graffiti art. Born in late 2001, Madrid, Spain. We develop our work mainly in the public space. We have carried out projects in South Africa, USA, UK, Brazil, Mexico, Georgia, Chile, Algeria, Norway, Kenya, China, Serbia or Panamá. We were 15 years old when we first met, while painting the walls of our neighborhood. We became friends since then. Our headquarter is in Madrid, but we spend the day from here to there, living among paint buckets, computers and ping-pong matches. We love what we do. We understand our work, as a tool to transform the street and to create bonds between people. We feel a responsibility with the city and time we are living in.”
The term “Boa Mistura” comes from the Portuguese “good mixture”, referring to the diversity of backgrounds and points of view from each member. The first mural was painted in late 2001. They adopted the name Boa Mistura in 2002 and in January 2010 they opened their own studio in Madrid.
