Javier Siquier (Mallorca, 1983) examines the invasion of images and messages in the urban landscape by using photography and graphic design. His transdisciplinary approach allows him to move beyond frames and feel at home both in the white cube of the gallery as in the public space. He subverts the codes of each context by assigning new functions to different elements: casual scratches on the walls are documented as part of an artistic intervention, graffiti paintings are re-framed or intervened, large signs are inserted into the gallery and thus become part of the exhibition. There is more to his work than urban art: he creates new spaces for our gaze and explores the city as an image.
