Genesis says that God created the world in 7 days,
taking advantage of the last one to rest.
We believe that we have the powers to create new universes and perspectives to life thanks to art, movement and all the love that we give to it.
Inspired by this idea, during 2016 we invite 7 Street Artists to interpret each one of this chapters:
I. Creation from nothing - Leon Ka
II. Day and Night - Klub 7 /Diskorobot, Lowskii/
III. Water - ZED1 - 11th of May
IV. Plants - Zosen - 15th of June
V. Animals - Saddo - 28th of September
VI. Human - Insane51 - 29th of November
VII. Rest - Txemy - 1st of February
2 new murals appeared during the event at the walls of Metric Market, Barcelona.
Letting the audience to interact with the Artists and to be part of a unique piece of Art.
Art is divine, art is food for the emotions.

CREATION FROM NOTHING
For the first chapter, ¨Sky and Earth¨
we have selected Leon Ka a.k.a Kafre, an artist from Barcelona, graduate in philosophy from Stanford University.
He makes graffiti from 1991 and continues to develop his art from an ontological perspective.

DAY AND NIGHT
Their experience starts long time ago making posters. After the size of their art transforms into the size of a building, one entire room, long street distance and many more. The list of their works is never-ending. Lots of travel, lots of will and passion bring them to many different parts of the world constantly.
They recreate everything into shapes, colours and movement. To describe ¨Klub 7¨ we can use such words as graphic, abstract, young and figurative.

The distance between Italy and Barcelona is one drop of water. The distance between oneself and the change is a piece of paper. ¨Second Skin¨ is an interactive urban art project created by the Italian artist - ZED1. He presents the third chapter of our story - ¨Water¨ with his interpretation - ¨Same water, different destiny¨. The change and the evolution of life in one wall that tells stories - ¨Génesis¨.
C H A P T E R I V
Natural shapes coming from Argentina, processed in Barcelona and expanded to all over the world! On 15th of June Zosen is presented his artistic point of view about how God created the plants. Let's go with him into the deep deep jungle!

For this chapter we go directly to eastern Europe, where animals run free on the streets of the cities, they have half part human shapes and get reborn again and again through the imagination of the Romanian artist Saddo. He brings them to Barcelona on 28 of September to show his version of the creation of the fifth day of the creation of the world - ¨Animals¨ .
C H A P T E R VI
For the penultimate chapter of our story - ¨Man¨, we decided to call on a presenter of one of the oldest civilizations on the continent - Insane51. He comes from Greece and sees the world from a very different perspective than we are used to. To understand him we need glasses, glasses that tell the truth.
November 29, Tuesday going to see all different thanks to its interactive work on the walls of space Metric Market.

Every story has a beginning and an end. Every story gives you a free pass lesson of how to improve yourself, how to be better, see better, feel better. One year ago, we've decided to create the world from another perspective, perspective made from many - Genesis. But, as every story, this one as well came to its end.
We present you the last chapter of Genesis and we are more than happy to announce that the person presenting it is the very talented Spanish artist txemy.
How he sees the last day - ¨Rest¨ from and alternative urban art point of view, you can see in the space of Metric Market, on 1st of February 2017.
An unconvetional place. Restaurant in Barcelona where art, music and gastronomy live together.
