Meet Setdebelleza, A Modern Pop Art Master

Have you ever dreamed of stepping inside a comic book? Well thanks to setdebelleza and his magical pop art world, 2B Art & Toys Gallery is offering the chance to walk among his mind-boggling and powerful artworks this summer. A gallery space is being turned into a series of animated and immersive symbols of immediate consumption and reflections of our contemporary society, all perfectly wrapped in his acidic and ironic universe. While preparing for the exhibition, we sat down with setdebelleza for a raw conversation about art.

2B: Why urban art and not another type of art?

Setdebelleza: I truly believe the street is the scene of life, from a neighborhood level, addressing local issues to communicating and spreading messages all over the world.

2B: Tell us a place where you always wanted to paint a mural?

Setdebelleza: I’ve done a lot, but I’d really like to paint something big on the rooftop or parking surface to be seen from the sky by drone or satellite.

2B: If you wanted your message to reach a specific audience in a powerful and transcendent way, where would you make your work or where would you place it?

Setdebelleza: I think the audience is an integral part of the artwork, and an artist has to have his audience in mind when he is creating a piece of art. It doesn’t matter if you hang it or publish it online, it’s all about reaching specific groups.

2B: Do you think that Street Art today has ceased to be transgressive?

Setdbelleza: Like all countercultural movements, it’s the irresistible attraction that makes street art an object of desire and a value to speculate. The creator’s message and intentions will prevail over all things.
