Presentation of the exhibition:

Doggy style is a series of painting in oil and acrylic by the artist Vera Uvarova. The series counts more than 20 works whose main characters are dogs.

Since her arrival to the Raval neighbourhood of Barcelona, the artist has developed a striving to portray unban life and street art of the city through the dogs. Vera uses this animal as a metaphor for the street spirit that is roaming around the city in a restless search for food, shelter or even affection.

For the artist, the essence of her work is in retrieving street life of her characters, whom she has met throughout her life, mostly skaters, rappers, writers, street artists and various misfits. Artist’s vision is not limited to Raval, but embraces similar communities like the Venice Beach in Los Angeles, California or Macba In Barcelona. Despite the touch of vulnerability typical for these communities, the artist seeks to highlight how they managed to become the centre of the affection and familiarity, governed by deeds and rules, the code of the street, based above all on the notion of respect.

Vera Uvarova was born in Moscow, Russia, in 1989, grew up in a family of creatives and intellectuals and developed interest in art from the early age. She graduated from the Moscow Stroganoff academy of industrial and applied arts and was working as a motion graphic designer and video editor on a Russian TV Chanel.

Vera did her first art project after a car crash that left her immobile for four month in 2008. Curated by Olga Sviblova, the project “800 Hours on My Back with an iPhone in Hand” was shown within a larger “Fashion & Style” show for young photographers.

Vera had been searching for the inspiration on the streets of Los Angeles, Paris and Berlin before she was adopted by the streets of Barcelona in 2014.

In her artistic practice, she works with different media raging from photography to painting and is particularly attracted by the theme of city life. Her characters and the stories for her art works are rooted in contemporary subcultures, such as hip-hop and skateboarding.
