Swinton & Grant is a new place for urban art in Madrid presented by the French artist E1000’s exhibition Le mal du pays.

The space is divided into two sections: the first one, Ciudadano Grant, is a book store specialized in street art, comics and fanzines, among others; the second, Swinton Gallery, is where the creations of multidisciplinary artists have their place, right where E1000 carries out Le mal du pays.

E1000 is an artist who plays with a graffiti base, transmuting it and looking for a new impact on the spectator. The versatility of the space (often taking up corners in which we would never expect a graffiti to be placed) and the essential geometric forms that shape a new and personal way of tagging are only some of the characteristics which make his work so attractive.
