Hyuro is an Argentinian artist best known for painterly compositions that combine vernacular depictions of femininity with socio-political undertones.
Originally working on canvas, Hyuro took to the streets after striking up a friendship with Spanish street artist Escif. From small scale doors to large scale walls, Hyuro has carved out a reputation for addressing prevalent social and political issue, with the characters she depicts often subordinated by patriarchal and capitalistic systems of power. Her piece for 2018’s Nuart Aberdeen proved a real talking point, exploring the political and social relationship between Scotland and England and opening up new dialogues on the cities streets.
With work that is both hard hitting and layered with subtleties, Hyuro has become one of the most influential female artists working in public space today. We’re delighted to welcome her back to Stavanger for Nuart Festival 2019!
