Following the two artistic interventions realized by Pisica Pătrată in Constanta and SANDi & OANA in Brasov, the Un-hidden Romania programme is expanding to Iasi. With the support of Artipic Association, the urban regeneration through art programme inaugurates a new multidisciplinary work created for public space, co-produced by Bea Hopes (mural painting) and Bucurie (audio composition).
The mural by Bea Hopes proposes an antithesis between the real and virtual environments, Through a series of graphic elements and colour combinations, passers-by are invited to discover a fragment of Mihaela Runceanu’s song “E-adevarat, iubirea mea“.
The artistic intervention is displayed in the centre of Iasi, on the façade of the Unirea Hotel. By scanning the QR code embedded in the artwork, urban explorers can listen to the audio composition created by artist Bucurie for this work.
Bea Hopes lives and works as a mixed media artist and illustrative tattoo artist, based in Iasi. The artist’s work can be seen on the walls of Iasi, where she has created murals for the projects of Artipic Association, such as IndeZIDerabilii, RegenerARTe, and Urban Art Caravan, in collaboration with Frag.menta.
Inspired by nature and its magical connections with people, Bucurie‘s musical productions are a representation of the artist’s deepest and most personal thoughts and feelings.
Throughout time, he delivered numerous independent materials on Bandcamp while collaborating with established record labels like Otaku, Stamp Records, feeder sound, Hubble Recordings, Sanguina, Honne Music, Depth Over Distance, Zebra Records and Abduction.
