Poster Sea Walls Cancún
Since the beginning of November, three walls of the city of Cancun boast impressive outdoor works of art created by three renowned street artists: Frenchman Remed — born in Paris in 1978, who lives and works in Madrid—, Spok from Madrid — who takes his name from the popular TV series Star Trek— and Smithe One from Mexico —an artist who successfully combines Street Art, illustration and music—.

By supporting this initiative, Fermax continues to be involved in the development of Street Art, a line of work that started when, some years ago, it invited young artists to transform its central facilities in Valencia into a large mural of 1 600 m2. From then on, its corporate building has been an international reference point for Street Art lovers and the company has integrated the support for this kind of street art into its strategy, recognising its great transformational power.
Throughout 2016, Fermax has been present at the best Street Art festivals held in those countries where the company is firmly established. The first of these was Paint Your London, an event that brought to life 20 different murals in a single spring weekend in the British capital. In May, it was the turn of Paris, where the company was supporting Street Art Life!, an exhibition in the centre of the French capital with iconic works from international street artists. More recently, in September, Fermax was at the Art Thema gallery in Brussels promoting the ambitious display entitled Link (on until December 2016), in which seventeen French artists, among the most intense on the European art scene, responded to the call of the sculptor-curator Jak Espi to prove that street art, which started as a transgressive, and even subversive, expressive model, has been finally accepted as an artistic model with a huge capacity for social transformation.
