Know, live and enjoy tape art, all in the same day.

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.

Colectivo TAV from València, Spain, reinvents himself.

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

Menphis style in Barcelona … this can only be tape art!

Today, the TAPE ART bus stops at the Barcelona station to know more about Juan Cris. Juan is a creative graphic designer and illustrator … with everything and everything together … how will not TAPE ART come out of here?!
So it was, in this project that we presented and that we loved from the minute zero, collaborated with Soon in Tokyo Agency , and he made it at the “School of Design LCI in Barcelona”. There they captured this great, beautiful, simple and very visual work with the name of “Memphis Style”.

The Superior School of Design LCI of Barcelona inaugurated a new campus in the city of Barcelona and Juan did it with this impressive graphic work installed in its interior courtyard.

The artistic intervention is within the signage program of the building and was made, of course, with adhesive tapes of fluorine colors.

From here we congratulate Juan Cris for his work and we include him in our list of fellow cool artists.

Today I feel tape artist and I will tell you

We have asked different people how they feel after doing tape art. Surely after reading a book, take a cool drink, listen to a good song or even after allowing yourself a whim, you have, as the TV spot says, a strange feeling of coming up … because that same thing happens to all that have approached, in some way or another, to this art that catches when you start, hypnotizes when you do it and hooks you forever when you finish it.

Paula Sánchez is a lawyer and director of a cultural foundation. Her experience with the tape art was when she participated in an intervention with Colectivo TAV for a brand of liquor. Everything was orange fluorine … and it was his first time: “Tape art made me feel a little artist. We had to improvise and be creative. As a team, with imagination, a little tape and a lot of art we got it. ”

 

Calpurnio is a cartoonist and tells us his experience in this post that we link, but in summary, for him, the tape art came unintentionally and then recognized that each step of the process has its methodology and that this group creation has some results amazing

Alicia Cambra is Interior Designer – Graphic Creative. She is also co-founder of Colectivo TAV of Valencia, Spain. She has participated in innumerable interventions with them and reminds us of them. She tells us that “my experience with Colectivo TAV was Tape-plethoric <3 Perhaps I remember with special affection the many laughs at the team meetings where we put on the table the initial ideas of each one to originate the concept”.

Paloma Corts, DePalo, is a painter and multidisciplinary artist, for her, doing tape art has been like having some human markers since she indicated to tape artists where they should place and move the tapes, imitating the strokes that she usually makes on paper.

Montse Martínez is creative in the management and production of fashion and accessories. She has participated in several interventions with the Colectivo TAV and says that “I tend to be in almost all events, classes or exhibitions just to invite me to put some of his wonderful tapes. Stay with your friends to spend an amazing day, different, super fun and very creative where the final result is always fantastic. ”
