Reskate is a Spanish art & craft collective formed by Minuskula, aka María López, and Javier de Riba: a duo of visual artists from Donostia-San Sebastián and Barcelona respectively. They use luminescent paint to create stunning murals that glow in the dark. Each figure hides another completely different or complementary that is revealed when the sun goes down.
Influenced by classic sign-painting, popular culture, and graphic design, their work includes murals, illustrations, exhibitions and installations. As an artistic collective, they question their style in every project, believing firmly that the aesthetics, techniques, and materials used must never be unthinking or gratuitous – on the contrary, they must exist solely as a vessel to convey and amplify the work’s underlying message. In their murals, they present works that are connected with the space around it, representing stories and facts of the local culture. Through this, they make visible the identity of the mural’s surroundings.Reskate
