Few artists make my eyes water the way Andrew Archer’s illustration do. The New Zealand-born, Melbourne-based artist creates sublime compositions accompanied by delicate and precise line work. However, I believe the real key to his work is his affinity for color.

As guest artists at Valencia's Poliniza Street Art Festival in May 2014, Luca Zamoc and Ferran Gisbert spontaneously decided to collaborate on a piece that combines their individual approaches to large-scale painting. The result is "Vipera," a 10-meter long snake that wraps around the wall of the city's Polytechnic University.
