Urban Art Umbrella/Parasol by cabaio from Argentina
Brighten up that drab, rainy day with our fashion umbrellas.
About the Artist
Cabaio entered the urban art scene in 2002 in Argentina. His crew, Vomito Attack, went out to spread ideas which were not yet written on the walls of Buenos Aires. Some had an underlying political message set against the backdrop of the Argentinian economic crisis and the senseless wars happening all over the globe.
The walls of Buenos Aires are quickly becoming a canvas for personal and political expression that use art to deliver thought-provoking messages. This art is called Graffiti Mundo: Street art by the people of Buenos Aires coupled with Argentina's political fragility which makes it genuinely unique in the global art scene.
Today, the streets remain as his canvas to express his opinions and feelings. By using different patterns, images, and words, he is able to create a wide variety of work, every time striving to incorporate new materials and techniques. His work is largely influenced by Cy Twonbly, the 50s, pop art, slang, and Japan.
About the Urban Creation Brand
Urban Creation is a young German based startup that aims to combine everyday products with artistic designs from around the world. In 2011, three friends from a university got together because of a passion that they shared for the work done by street artists within and outside German borders. Their goal is to bring more color to the urban scenery, and to bring creativity where it is least expected. Moreover, Urban Creation's unique products serve as voice for political statements and depictions of life which might go unheard otherwise.
The idea for their first ever product line, Urban Creation Umbrellas, came from Glasgow's rainy streets. While observing the monotony of a rainy day in a modern metropolis, it is hard not to miss the blazes of summer colors. They decided that they should give people the opportunity to show their love for color and art even when confronted with the stormiest weather. With the passion for the work done by street artists and inspired by the beauty of their designs, the product quickly took shape.
The folks at Urban Creation believe in combining world class designs with high quality products to create something that has never existed before. They aim to create a platform which artists from different countries can use to promote unconventional ideas and creative thinking. The product's custom style, from its motivation up to the company logo, is confined only to the artists' imagination. So far, they have cooperated with artists from New York, Buenos Aires, and Tehran. Moreover, they constantly seek to expand their network and establish cooperation with other professional artists around the globe. To keep the spotlight on the artists along with their fascinating stories, every product packaging features the artist's biographies. Urban Creation stands for passion, artistic expression and quality.
