 Hoy Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is a small town located in the colonial area of Santo Domingo, the capital of The Dominican Republic. Historically used for slave traffic, and today almost completely forgotten by the rest of the city.

During a full week, the Modafaca platform has been working together with locals for the Hoy Santa Barbara festival which has brought over artists from Puerto Rico (Bik Ismo, Celso, Vero Rivera) New York (Esteban del Valle ), Colombia (Ceroker) and Dominican Republic (Gabz LPA, Angurria, Cristian Pimentel, Gina Paola, Natalie Ramirez, Leks, Poteleche).

“Lisbon, one of Europe’s most underrated cities, has in recent years been the recipient of an influx of artists, many fleeing Berlin and Paris for cheaper rents. While the expat scene thrives, the global community seems to have overlooked the local talent, which also exists in spades. One of these homegrown creatives is artist Arturo “Bordalo II, who uses materials like old tires, scrap metal, steering wheels, oil paint, and bumpers to form impressive, larger-than-life 3D murals on walls and back alleys throughout the city.” - via Good
