El Hacha

 Between October and November 2022, Barcelona based artistic center B-Murals curated and produced Osona Artimur Festival, a never been done initiative of the Department of Tourism of Osona (an idyllic region up north BCN full of rivers, mountains and beautiful landscapes), in collaboration with the Catalan company Transit Projectes.

19 well renowned artists from the international muralism scene, the Spanish contemporary art world and some local guns selected through open calls and participatory processes, intervened the streets and the public space of 5 different villages - Prats de Lluçanès, Manlleu, Sant Julià de Vilatorta, Sant Bartomeu del Grau and Alpens -, supported by an extensive production team which included assistants, runners, photographers and filmers.

Within the framework of the Osona Art i Mur festival, Prats de Lluçanès decided to launch an open call for 3 Catalan artists or artists based in Catalonia. A call with the aim of providing opportunities for local talent in an international curatorial festival.

Wedo Goas has been part of the open call selection with his mural "El Hacha".
The mural proposal is rooted in local traditions and has been made thanks to a photographic portrait taken by the artist upon his arrival in Prats.
"Every June 23, in Prats de Lluçanès, the traditional torchlight march ends in the square where the mural is located, with them the neighbors set fire to the bonfire of San Juan and then dance around it
Contrapàs.”

En el marco del festival Osona Art i Mur, Prats de Lluçanès apostó por lanzar una convocatoria abierta para 3 artistas catalanes o afincados en Cataluña. Una convocatoria con objetivo de dar salida al talento local en un festival de comisariado internacional.
Wedo Goas  ha sido parte de la selección de la convocatoria abierta con su mural “El Hacha”.
La propuesta del mural está enraizada en las tradiciones locales y se ha realizado gracias a un retrato fotográfico hecho por el artista a su llegada a Prats.
“Cada 23 de junio, en Prats de Lluçanès, la tradicional marcha de antorchas finaliza en la plaza donde se ubica el mural, con ellas los vecinos prenden fuego a la hoguera de San Juan para después bailar a su alrededor el
Contrapàs.”
