The Wallspot project of the urban art production company Rebobinart has been recognized by the Ministry of Culture and Sports as one of the best in the category of cultural and creative industries for 2021.
In a round table with Proyecto Ballena and La Fira Trovam Proweekend, the director and founder of Rebobinart, Marc Garcia, has been able to explain the origin of Wallspot from the management of Murs Lliures, the first initiative of the production company.
Currently, Wallspot has internationalized and manages more than 90 walls where you can paint legally and safely in up to 20 different cities. Anyone who wants to paint just needs to reserve the wall from the website or the application, make their creation and upload a photograph of the final result. In this way, the initiative gives space to infinite cultural action, constantly renewed, without fear of being censored or sanctioned.
Since the first wall managed by Rebobinart in 2012 as Murs Lliures, the existence of this project now called Wallspot has facilitated the recovery of the artistic fabric, the generation of a pool of new creators and the destigmatization of the practice of urban art.

Having just celebrated its 10th anniversary this year, Robobinart continues to promote an urban art vision placing it at the service of society through the creation of projects that are rooted to the territories. All of their art projects aim to add value to the urban spaces while creating a new communication path with the citizens by arousing a critical spirit and conveying social messages.
In this regard, they have developed a comprehensive programme of artistic projects in public spaces that includes large murals, community murals, artists’ exchanges, exhibitions, festivals or participative workshops. All of them claim the art ability to act as a tool for cultural and social transformation.
