Within the Valencian artistic panorama and more specifically during cultural activities developed in the Ruzafa neighborhood of Valencia, an artistic project was born that represents the history, meaning and sensitivity of a group that in these times of crisis and depression is setting an example. of the good results of collective participation for the benefit of a neighborhood, the coexistence of its neighbors and the promotion of its businesses.
Thanks to the artistic collective concentrated in the Ruzafa neighborhood, with its deep-rooted history and unbeatable geographical location on the map of the city of Valencia. The casual concentration of artists, workshops and exhibition spaces has managed to revitalize a depressed area of our city.
This project arises with this idea. Represent the reality of a Valencian neighborhood that has opted for culture as a flag for its representation. A neighborhood in which different races and cultures have learned to coexist with their customs. And that thanks to the loss of complexes, it has managed to gain a name and a concept that goes beyond the merely visible. That concept is called ARTE, an artistic neighborhood.
COLLECTIVE BRUSHES is a project proposed by the artist Miguel Ángel Aranda, a resident of Ruzafa, where he has his studio. Within the artistic activities that he has carried out, he has several live projects developed in different businesses in Ruzafa, which has given him recognition within the neighborhood. The COLLECTIVE BRUSHES project begins on May 14, 2011, developing for fifteen days in the Galería Imprevisual.
To start the project and with the principle of participation, the collective of artists and creators who reside in the Ruzafa neighborhood or who carry out activities in the neighborhood are summoned to carry out an intervention on a base in the shape of a human silhouette that Miguel Ángel prepares. Aranda. The idea is simple, all participants receive a figure of the same format. Each artist has to intervene in it on behalf of his person, his style or concerns, having total freedom in the subject or technique to be used. With these premises, the project is launched and the work COLLECTIVE BRUSHES is born, which is completed within the scheduled period with 20 pieces by different artists.
But the project takes on its own entity and in the following days it begins to receive figures that for one reason or another could not be finished on time. To safeguard the artists who participated by meeting the dates, but without underestimating the work done by the rest of the late participants, it was decided to incorporate these pieces as individual annexes, which accompany the main work as adjacent streets, extending each side. of the work
This part of the project arises with the challenge of getting 40 annexed works to complete it.
But once again, participation exceeds our expectations and crosses borders, creating a project that, representing a multicultural neighborhood with an artistic spirit, crosses borders and cultural barriers, welcoming the participation of artists worldwide.
Today COLLECTIVE PINCELADAS has more than 150 annexes, plus the 20 initial figures to which will be added the figures of the artists who continue to join the project.
I believe that the work faithfully represents the concept of an artistic collective and that, thanks to the figures, it respects the individuality and peculiarity of each one of the participants. Also highlighting the indiscriminate participation in which we can find ourselves from renowned artists to the most novel and emerging creators. The group of different nationalities within the project gives it a vision of the social, open and plural reality in which we live in our country and specifically in our city of Valencia that has crossed borders and barriers, welcoming and enriching itself with the contribution of each one of the individuals.
COLLECTIVE BRUSHES makes visible the reality of our time and the artistic collective that we have had to live.
Miguel Ángel Aranda tells us what was his inspiration to carry out this project:
We live in strange times, or at least it seems so to me. A world full of tricks, postures and labels that denature the human being. But there is a basic sense that we cannot avoid and we must feel without ties or taboos. For each one it is presented in different ways, for some it is love, for others it is that melody that they cannot forget, a furtive look, money or a ray of sunshine. But in the end, we all feel the same. It is the engine that moves us. I feel it when painting, when starting a new work, when finishing it and contemplating it, when proposing, when creating, when recognizing the emotion in the eyes of the observer. And as an artist I believe that this should be our highest aspiration. That is passion for me.
With this maxim, the Collective Brushstrokes project was born, a vision of the common consciousness of the artistic collective that is represented in the initial work, and that without forgetting the individuality, creativity and style of each artist, presents each one with their peculiarities and personality.
