The murals of Tamara Djurovic, also known as Hyuro, don’t just work with the unique features of a wall: Each integrates its makeshift canvas for site-specific narratives. Her works are often intimate scenes, moving between interpersonal tension and solitary whimsy.
Argentinian artist known as Hyuro’s art makes use of negative space through a series of repeating figures, where the location of her work is integral to how we perceive it. Featured here on our blog, this has usually taken place in the streets. But whether she is mural painting, building installations, or showing her paintings in a gallery, Hyuro is making observations about life: framed by an empty white background, the people in her work demonstrate our relationships and how we interact with one another.
Spanish street artist Hyuro recently traveled to Copenhagen for her solo show, “In/Between,” at ArtRebels and completed a 271 meter-long mural while she was in town. The mural took two weeks to paint and is a meditative study of light and negative space through a series of repeating figures. Painted like a flip book, Hyuro’s mural depicts here character’s gradual progression through a monochromatic forest. Take a look at her painstaking new work after the jump, photos courtesy of Henrik Haven unless otherwise noted.

The exhibition will be open from May 11th through May 31st.
Recently opened at NYC’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery, ‘Hybrid Thinking’ explores the intricate yet different experiences we share concerning nature and how we react within its landscapes. Curated by Marc and Sara Schiller of Wooster Collective, the 6 street artists represented in ‘Hybrid Thinking’, including Herakut (Vol 17), Sit and Hyuro, all originate from different countries, markedly none of which are from the US. Coupled with these varied national sources, each artist investigates how humans and animals converge to form a hybrid identity in a variety of mediums including paint, sculpture and assemblage. View opening night photos and images of the works after the jump, here on Hi-Fructose.
Opening alongside the new works by Natalia Fabia (which we recently previewed here) at Jonathan LeVine gallery this weekend will also be “Hybrid Thinking,” a group exhibit featuring six street artists from around the world. Curated by Marc and Sara Schiller of Wooster Collective, the group show features an exciting blend of not just established folks such as Roa and Herakut (HF Vol. 17) but also some of our favorite lesser known emerging artists such as Sit from Amsterdam and Dal from Cape Town. The wide range of styles and works makes this a globe spanning exhibit and one of the best curated street art shows we’ve seen in a while. Get a full preview of what to expect from the show in advance of the January 14th opening, after the jump.
