Escalera de Incendios is an Art Concept which works with independent and emerging Contemporary Art and Artists developing peculiar Art Projects.
ALEJANDRA DE LA TORRE IN MELBOURNE
Our first art project in Melbourne has been this amazing mural with our epic artist Alejandra de la Torre. She was painting «The big budgie» at Rose St Artist Market, in the creative neighbourhood of Fitzroy, Melbourne. A special location for unique artwork.
«The budgies are the third best-known pet in the world, but nobody knows that the budgies are Australian birds, for this reason, I decided to make a great budgie when they invite me to paint in Melbourne.»
Alejandra de la Torre
You are more than welcome to visit the place and enjoy «The big budgie». The Rose St Artist Market opens on weekends but you can stop weekly at the spot and enjoy the mural.

ESCALERA DE INCENDIOS IS
Escalera de Incendios is an Art Concept which works with independent and emerging Contemporary Art Artists and Projects. Directed by Anna García, artist and independent art curator. It works from the cloud representing different artists in different disciplines.
It was born in 2012 in Barcelona with the main goal of democratising the art, breaking walls between artist and audience. Facilitating access to art and culture for all audiences through exhibitions, actions, talks, workshops, markets, fairs and art festivals. Since the beginning, it has been defined as a cultural lab where critique and thought are present, an open place for reflection, production and development of thought.
In its online art gallery, we can enjoy the work of its current artists. Nowadays it works on new international projects with artists based in Spain and Australia.

ARTISTS in our ART GALLERY ONLINE
One of the most important projects that Escalera de Incendios has developed in Barcelona is the art festival Young Gallery Weekend [YGW]. It is a contemporary art event in which galleries, creative places, emerging artists and independent cultural projects are the players. A vanguard generator, YGW gives visibility to the contemporary cultural scene featuring the most innovative proposals. YGW is a direct encounter with the public and serves as a stimulus for the dissemination of culture in all its forms.
A place granted to young minds.
