Graffiti is a universe, an art made of letters, shapes, colors that the hand but also the whole body contribute to creating, to posing. It’s an alliance of body and mind which speak the same language, articulated in a living, vibrant painting, which springs forth in a pictorial orchestration.
Through a specific shooting technique, organized around a Plexiglas wall and a multi-camera device, several artists produce works from which Cristobal Diaz creates a choral composition which shows a multiplicity of practices. Tags, graffiti, figuration, calligraphy, abstraction are explored here, and their compositions orchestrated in a singular montage which allows us to glimpse the process of urban artistic creation in an unexpected form.

Directors Biography

Cristobal Diaz

“The Graffiti Mystery” results from the work of aesthetic exploration carried out by the director as part of a “graffiti gesture experimentation laboratory”.
It aims to be laid bare, an immersive approach to an artistic practice which reveals the creative process, the intensity of the gesture, the scriptural impulse aestheticized in its raw state. It reveals to us what is usually carried out out of sight and that is its mystery.
