Virtual graffiti by Catag a subversive and philanthropic visual communication
The art world is constantly evolving, and one of the most exciting and provocative forms of contemporary art is intervention. It challenges the boundaries of traditional art forms, and at the same time engages with public spaces and issues of social and cultural significance.
Catag, the artist duo known for their innovative and experimental approach to art, have been at the forefront of this movement since 2014. Their interventions have taken various forms, from installations to street art and digital projects, and have been executed both indoors and outdoors.
While similar to street art and urban art, interventions are often executed without permission and commission, making them more akin to performance art. Catag’s interventions address socio-cultural, functional, spatial, and material aspects of their surroundings, and often challenge the power structures that exist in society.
Using a variety of materials and mediums, including time, light, sound, and movement in space, Catag’s interventions are thought-provoking and transformative. Their work is a reminder that art can be a powerful tool for social change and that it can exist beyond the confines of traditional art spaces.
From the vibrant and dynamic virtual graffiti projected on brick walls to the striking site-specific installations that juxtapose sleek modern design with rough industrial settings, Catag’s interventions are an invitation to see the world in a new light.
Their work has been featured in NFT marketplaces, at the Transurban Festival, and in exhibitions such as the one curated by AJ Polonia and Uli Sigg. With their carefree spontaneity and aesthetic guerrilla actions, Catag has become known as one of the most exciting and innovative artist duos of our time.
Whether through digital paintings, web-art, live VJ sets, or audiovisual concerts, Catag’s interventions invite us to question our surroundings, engage with urban spaces, and imagine new possibilities for cultural life and virtual dimensions.
