Puma Urban Art 2009 is the meeting point for the best national and international urban artists. An original event, dedicated to contemporary art and the new trends on street art around the world.
This second edition of the Festival will feature the presence of national and international artists, like Alberto Cerriteño (Mexico), Alto Contraste (Brazil), Nate Williams (USA) and Víctor Castillo (Chile), among others.
One of the new features this year will be the projection of films and documentaries related to the Urban Art movement, including “Banksy’s Coming for Dinner”, featuring the number one graffiti artist, Bansky; “The Universe Of Keith Haring”, with appearances by Yoko Ono, Madonna, Grace Jones and David Lachapelle, among others; “Milton Glaser: to inform & delight”, by the great designer and creator of the logo "I LOVE NY"; and “Conversations whit Jean-Michel Basquiat”, about the first rupturist artist to paint in the streets.
Another new feature is a skate and bike championship, where professional riders will show their skills in a skate park inside the premises.
Puma will dedicate a special place to its model 917, inspired in pop art, and mainly in the work of Roy Lichtenstein.
