DMG – Durán Monkey Gallery – es un novedoso proyecto que surge de la unión de Durán Online Gallery y Monkey Garage y gira en torno al arte urbano y la cultura underground. Durán Online Gallery es una galería de arte que apuesta por los nuevos lenguajes artísticos de artistas contemporáneos que destacan por su reconocida trayectoria nacional e internacional y por sus aportaciones al panorama actual del arte. En un espacio virtual multidisciplinar están representados los principales movimientos y tendencias de la vanguardia artística de los siglos XX y XXI.


Monkey Garage está ubicado en la calle Santa Brígida, 11 de Madrid, en pleno barrio de Malasaña. Un espacio diáfano de techos altos que conserva el espíritu industrial de antaño y que da cabida no sólo a atrevidas propuestas de arte y de moda, sino a eventos y workshops para todos los públicos accesible a todo el que quiera participar.

BLACKATELIER – JAMES CHOULES / ™SHEONE

Born in London in 1969, James began to write Graffiti in 1984. A decade later he had formalised the concept of spraypaint as  the primary medium of expression and was beginning to personalise his alter-ego signature as the gestural cage for contextual subject. Since an Invitation, in 2000, to make his first solo exhibition of  paintings on canvas in New York, he is widely recognised as a pioneer of European and abstract Graffiti. In Tokyo, 2002, he exhibits and creates installation paintings In black & white and raw canvas, the breakthrough aesthetic that is recognised today as his trademark style. « the play of light and dark enabled SheOne to define  the form and create pure visual poetry, as true beauty  doesn’t come through the representation of the material  world, it comes from the human soul. » A steady stream of exhibitions and international projects coupled with artistic collaborations around product design,  music and fashion have cemented his works and personally stylised approach to image making into  the contemporary urban canon.
