exhibition and live paint
With this year's exhibition showcasing works from Banksy, Inkie, Hush, Pam Glew, Goldie, Fin Dac and many more high-flyers from the scene, it’s a perfect opportunity to be able to view works by artists who are famous in their own right, all under one roof – a rare occurrence in the first place, let alone in such beautiful surroundings as the prestigious Atzaro Agricultural Resort.
The artists involved are highly collectable, the show will be a unique chance to get one off bespoke piece made exclusively for the show in Ibiza. The event's theme is based around the number seven and its mythical meaning, prominent in religion, film and publishing works over the years, the background has been researched extensively and the body of reference materials has been supplied to the artists as inspiration for their commissioned works which will be presented to the public for the first time at UII7.
Other highlights include live painting. The audience will be able to witness artworks taken from blank canvas to finished piece in front of their very eyes – a rare treat to be able to see elite spray can artists in action and to be able chat with them informally while they paint! Artists: Inkie, Fin Dac, Elmo Hood, Zeus, #codefc, SR47 and Yared Nigussu.

They were voted best support act at Glastonbury, stealing the show from the main acts constantly wherever they go. Check out their latest single ‘Monsters’ and strap yourself

After the success of 'Sons of Warhol' in 2013 and 'Tailored Anarchy' in 2014, this year we call our artists to create fresh artworks based on the symbolic meaning of the number Seven.
2015 is the seventh year when Urban in Ibiza takes places in the magical island, and we celebrate this number with our deepest respect.
In all cultures, myths and legends seven represents completeness and totality, macrocosm, perfection, plenty, reintegration, rest, security, safety and synthesis. There are seven days of the week, seven colours of the rainbow, seven notes on a musical scale, seven seas and seven continents. Snow White ran off to live with seven dwarves, there were seven brides for seven brothers, Shakespeare described the seven ages of man, Sinbad the Sailor had seven voyages. And when Ian Fleming was looking for a code for James Bond, he didn’t go for 006 or 008. Only 007 had the right ring.
