Each week, HIYA Gallery looks back on the history of art and more precisely on the history of street art and its associated movements. We try to highlight the pioneers of this movement who have become legends, the mythical works that have left their mark in the history of street art, as well as important cultural events concerning the development of street art and graffiti, such as books rare or cult, exhibitions making reference in the history of the movement, films and other events.
We believe that in order to understand and feel the art of our time, we must constantly learn where it came from and what its roots are. That is why, alongside the representation and promotion of artists, we want to share with you knowledge about the history of street art.
QR code - Felipe Pantone
The HIYA Gallery series places and works legendaries of street art present you the “QR” fresco created by the contemporary Argentinian-Spanish artist Felipe Pantone (@felipepantone). It was performed in Hasselt, Belgium (2017).
This is the world's largest spray-painted QR code, created in the style of the artist's signature bursts of color with the mysterious code depicted in the middle. The artwork is approximately 30 meters long and 25 meters high, and it took the artist a total of 403 Montana spray cans to produce the impressive piece of art.
To discover the idea behind the work, Felipe Pantone invites everyone to scan the QR code and find out what is behind it.
