The tape art is characterized by ephemeral art, new and very colorful, but also by its rapid acceptance among people who don’t know it for simplicity in learning.
We put a test to Colectivo TAV of Spain, in a street intervention to decorate the main street at a neighborhood party.
The first reactions of the people were of surprise and amazement. “What kind of art is this?” This is tape art, the art of colored adhesive tapes with which we make murals and ephemeral pieces, “is this going to be here always?” It will depend on people, on the weather, etc. “Where did you get these colorful tapes?” We always work with Miarco, they are spectacular tapes.
After the first hours and once answered all the questions, the smallest ones were the first to approach to work with us, firsthand touch the material and begin to make their own figures.
And how do you think they have managed to fill a street of more than 500 meters with tapes in a single day? The decision was previous, and the Coolectivo TAV decided to make an urban intervention on the furniture itself, walls and floor. They created a series of easy-to-carry dolls so that people could make them and at the same time allow them to fit the different elements of the street. In addition, they played with the colors working by areas until completing the main street. A day in which they ended up exhausted, they confirmed this, but they were also satisfied with the result and above all for the feedback of the neighbors.
Once again tape art approaches all audiences in a fun and lively way.
The tapes that have been used for this intervention are american tapes of fluorescent colors and black and white tapes, all of MIARCO.
The group of tape artists that forms the Colectivo TAV (Tape Art València) present us their new logo and web in scoop. Jose Miguel Piquer, Álvaro Navarro and Nadia Montero are the three artists behind TAV, who use the walls of any place as canvases for the creation of their ephemeral pieces that they always make with adhesive tapes of the MIARCO brand, official sponsor in their artistic interventions .
Their interventions are characterized by a very visual style, geometric shapes, and fluorine colors. The group always develops the assembly of the installations in the space in which it is going to be created, since they are ephemeral pieces, they are first designed on the computer and then transferred to reality with adhesive tapes. Although as you know, sometimes there is room for improvisation of this urban art.
It ‘s the first group of tape artists created in Spain about this art more than 7 years ago and its facilities began decorating a coworking space. Their passion and success led them to do work for Museums, Exhibitions, Exhibitions of artists, etc. in just over 9 months. In 2012, the Adidas brand awarded them the winners of the “All Originals” contest that the brand carried out at the national level. Today they have more than forty interventions and are already planning the next one … We follow you Colectivo TAV
We started the week strong, with the help of Colectivo TAV, and with one of their latest street art interventions for a commercial brand dedicated to travel. They have used for the work the adhesive tapes of colors of the brand with which they always collaborate: MIARCO. These tapes are their biggest allies when they considering any work so if you want to know more about them, you can find them on their website.
Boats, sailboats and ocean liners departing from the ports and sailing the seas while riding on waves … waves of tape, of course!.
And light and colorful planes crossing a sky full of tape art, what a wonder! It is a clear example of the versatility of tape art and that with a good design, although apparently it may seem simple, you can create a decoration and a striking environment.
And we took advantage of the Colectivo TAV planes, to tell you about a tape art movement that crosses the skies of the whole world. If you dare with the tapes and want to join the movement, take your tape roll of MIARCO, go out and choose your wall, you already have half.
Now draw a plane with the tape, or two, or three, or four … with its stele with dashed line and upload it to the networks, for example, Instagram, with the hashtag #tapeplanesinternational or tagging @tapeplanesinternational
This was the challenge and Colectivo TAV has shown that it knows the formula. In Valencia, Spain, they have chosen a unique and emblematic space for the city. A Museum, the “Center del Carmen”, with a gothic cloister with a square floor plan with four pointed arches and galleries with vaults. It is an idyllic, solemn setting, completely isolated from the street walls where they started.
The colored adhesive tapes as the main material and all the machinery to start the project were ready. But they wanted, as they did in the beginning with the cartoonist Calpurnio in the Museum of the Enlightenment of his city, to associate on this occasion, with an artist. In this case the “joint venture” has been with dePalo, a multidisciplinary artist who plays with painting and collage in equal parts. Paloma Cort is characterized by the unique use of ingenuity in everyday situations.
Well all this: a museum + an artist + collective TAV + Miarco adhesive tapes is equal to the last intervention of this collective pioneer in Spain: “In the museum I get in”.
Dolls of four and five meters high burst into the silence of the cloister and contemplate the works of the artists under the watchful eye of all those who for the first time approach tape art. And it is that museums raise the tape art to a higher category. For dePalo, tape artists “have been like their human markers”, and they have done so. The magic of this union can be seen in the final result.
We are happy to know that they have been very well received by the public and have been followed up in the media. Keep growing and continue to investigate Colectivo TAV because we want to continue being spectators of everything you do.
And here some images of the work and the final intervention. We know that you will like it:
Delving into the world of the meanings of the colours and colour therapy, we have even got to read that the colour black is the colour of negativity and that it brings out the “dark side” of the other colours when it is next to any of them. It is assumed that when combined with yellow, the message that comes out to us is that of selfishness. Curious at least. Thus, Victor Solanas-Díaz, one of the more consolidated Spanish tape artists, and a much-loved member of the Tape Art Society, all said, shows us in his work OUT OF NEITHER the splendour of this chromatic binomial through tape art. Victor gets once again the transformation of space by intervening floor and walls with his favourite tape, the black and yellow of signalling, modified by means of optical effects simple and subtle but very eye catching. There is no equal work of art and similar effect.
We recommend that you drop by the Centro de Historias de Zaragoza from now up until the 10th of September for you to discover and check for yourself how generous this combination of colours is, from the hand of Victor Solanas-Díaz and his tape art.
