RuoHan

Our choice of the Chinese artist is a young calligrapher RuoHan. Born and raised in the capital of Gansu Province in Northwest China, she moved to Madrid for her higher education, currently enrolled in the Juan Carlos University. Calligraphy is her biggest passion and lifestyle. In her spare time, she pursued a career

teaching calligraphy and Chinese culture in several schools and hold regular workshops. Her work is not constrained by the traditional ink and brush combination. She works with media in different sizes and materials, breaking boundaries and presumptions that Chinese calligraphy must be carried out on plane paper.

 Artistic Duo:

Manomatic / Ruohan collaboration

Wooden panels will be fixed on two sides of each container for our invited artists. Wooden panels are excellent media for street art thanks to its rigidness and ability to absorb paint at a high precision. During the night, these panels will be brought into the container for safe keeping.

Inspired by the artwork of talented street artist WD, each of the two sides will form one homothetic image

Material

– 30 stencils
– Water-based sprays
– Sprays

The Creative Process

The creative process will be carried out spontaneously using different techniques by the artistic duo (inspired by the works of Retna and El Mac, above), and the result will an organic blend of both styles and culture. It contains Chinese calligraphy, abstract patterns, and photorealistic portrait in vibrant colours.
We do not plan to sell on site due to a shortage of hands. Posters and other products will be sold online, using online platforms and marketplaces such as Society6 and Redbubble.
