Artistas de todo el mundo dejan su huella en el corazón de Léxington

Por Andrés Cruz para La Voz

La globalización de la economía y el flujo internacional de personas junto con una descentralización de las ciudades y crecimiento de suburbios como centros de empleo y residencia importantes han modificado el asentamiento de personas a una nueva clase de zonas metropolitanas. Esta tendencia además ha incrementado el flujo internacional de información, arte, intercambio comercial, etc..

Las zonas de destino tienden a ser áreas metropolitanas con una historia de desarrollo más reciente, Léxington no es la excepción.

Ese patrón se refleja de diversas formas como por ejemplo en los diferentes campos laborales alto impacto inmigrante e internacional, en el lenguaje y también el arte y la cultura local.

Durante los últimos años Léxington continua dando paso positivos en la dirección correcta expresando una mayor diversidad en el panorama visual a través del arte.

En el 2011, la organización Lexarts unió esfuerzos con negocios locales para desarrollar murales en diferentes puntos de la ciudad, la presencia del grupo de muralistas alemanes Herenkut en las calles North Limestone y Market es el resultado de esa iniciativa.

El pasado mes de noviembre, el muralista brasileño Eduardo Kobra presentó un mural de 60 pies retratando al ex-presidente Abraham Lincoln, nacido en Kentucky, transformando la pared trasera del Teatro Kentucky.

Este mes de octubre, otro muralista, el portugués Odeith fue invitado a presentar un mural del gran músico de jazz, Louis Armstrong en calle Elm.

En el 2014, Odeith ganó uno de los mayores premios mundiales de arte urbano: I Support Street Art.

Así mismo, el escultor africano Kiptoo Tarus ha ido llenando de poco la ciudad de Léxington con sus esculturas de madera.

Nativo de Kenia, África Occidental, este estudiante de Bellas Artes expresa su fascinación por el arte tribal usando esculturas en troncos de madera. Su colección “Manos de Persistencia” puede ser vista en calle Short en el centro de la ciudad, una ciudad cuyo panorama visual urbano se ve impactado por un mundo más global, y diverso.

LEXINGTON-The phenomenon of globalization and the restructuring of the U.S. economy, and the accompanying decentralization of cities and growth of suburbs as major employment centers have shifted immigrant settlement to a new class of metropolitan areas.

Emerging destinations tend to be metropolitan areas with more recent development histories, largely suburban in form. Lexington is not the exception.

This pattern can be seen reflected in different forms such as in the labor market, language; and in the local arts and culture vibrancy the city experiences today.

The urban visual landscape does not escape these influences and Lexington keeps going in the right direction opening creative spaces with a diverse impact of international artists.

In 2001, Lexarts joined forces with three local businesses to develop a series of murals through out the city. The presence of German muralists group Herenkut on North Limestone and Short street are result of that joined venture.

Last month of November, a 60-foot-tall portrait of Kentucky-born President Abraham Lincoln, transformed the back wall of The Kentucky Theatre building into the main screen of attention.

This month of October, another muralist, this time Portuguese Odeith just unveiled a Louis Armstrong mural on Elm street in downtown.

In 2014 Odeith won one of the best murals world award by the site of urban art: I Support Street Art.

Fascinated by tribal art, Kenyan sculptor, Kipto Tarus, uses a chain saw to cut sculptures from logs, giving us in downtown its “Hands of Persistence” on Short Street.

Lexington continues changing and evidencing the high impact of international artists that have filled with color the city’s visual landscape.
