The event had a lot of public from all around who had the chance to talk to some of the artists that showcase in this exhibition (Charles Wilkin, André Bergamin and Bill Noir), the curators (Rubén B and Max-o-matic) and local artists (Cless, Gloria Vilches and Sergi Lacambra). The bustling ambient was propitious to exchange opinions about techniques, styles, and share impressions about their work…
