David de Limón is an illustrator, graphic designer and street artist graduated in Fine Arts and Photography. He's been painting the streets since 1998. David was born in El Carmen neighborhood and was lucky to spend his adolescence when there was more freedom of expression. David de Limon's colorful ninjas can be seen rubbing shoulders with the créme de la créme of Valencian graffiti artists, some of whom collaborate and share workshop space with him.
fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
This tour is very much a beginners guide to appreciating street art, so if you are familiar, you would likely find most of the pieces yourself walking around, but it hear some stories about it. Getting to try spray paint your own tags at the end was a really fun social activity and the shirt you make with the professional street artist at the end is a pretty great souvenir worth most of the event fee in itself.
I gained a new appreciation for the street art that is all over Valencia
David ROCKS! Loved learning about the traditions and "ethics" around street art.
David does a stellar job of guiding u thru the streets of El Carmen and pointing out the differences in street art, graffiti, etc.
Then u will cruise n2 the studio to grab a can first hand! U get to learn the painting technic (yourself) ultimately putting ur RY name on the hanging wall. U scoot out the door w/a T-shirt representing what you and your group created.
Keep rockin David de Limon!
No better way to learn about graffiti vs. street art vs. mural art than from a career, local artist whose chosen medium is a spray can. There was amazing art literally around every corner, with a deeper story that David brought to light. I now see so much in this city that I would have glanced over, and I have a greater appreciation for the work and the messages. Bonus that we got some lessons on spray painting (actually harder than it looks!) and shared in a really cool group project! David was amazing to talk with, and the workshop owner was also really nice. Highly recommend!
