Story

LosOtros is a European-based Anonymous Artistic Cooperativa that carries out Urban Actions, within a poetic and melancholic Post Situationist tradition.  Since its inception in 2003, LosOtros, by Mj Tom and his alter ego Andrea Nada, is known for their use of wheat pasting and stenciling in the increasingly established arena of Street Art, and for their explorations of duality through a fragmented style of appropriation and collage.  Soon after sIsteR jANe added as the main Spotter, altogether with the Life HiJacker. In 2005 Dr Z and JDM master was joined the group.  Since 2010 Dr Z + Life HiJacker+ JDM master took a Sabbatical, but [ blank ] added.  The 2013 Andrea Nada died and after that sIsteR jANe and [ blank ] left to follow different endeavors. As they designate “We are all coming from different backgrounds but we want to apply our creativity in a common effort”.

Credo

LosOtros belong in the intersection between Visual Poetry, a trend that found its development in Brazil, springing from the concrete poetry movement of the decade of 1950, and Urban Art. They surfaces in 2003 as a personal [common] project presented themselves as a brand against brands, their utopian mission being the antidote to advertising, and what it convey it, to the collective unconscious.

Their work capture fragments of life, often forgotten, and echoes the unease and mixes it with the uncomfortable reality of continuous transformations of the urban environment in which it lives. Faces, pseudo familiar situations, characters belonging to various walks of life… they all inject emotions with such a warm identity to characterize, of course, the experience of ordinary people, those people who would say and tell through the eyes their own existence.

Their public interventions may be found as illegal marks over a wide variety of urban environments, due to its viral mechanics as well as the various media it wove itself into, just as it may surface as an art installation.

With their imagination and technique, irreverent and fleeting, able to define themselves as a Copy Machine of Art, ironic and deliberately anonymous, LosOtros represent the ordinary people; those actors unaware of being protagonists of present days and to represent them in spite of a reality in half-tone that essentially results a kind of summary, which, in the end, is life!

Since 2004 they took holidays from everyday life to carry out the

  • UTS | Underneath  The Surface
  • RV | Recto Verso

[in the city at night] projects where, echoing the situationist concept of detournement, they hijacks spaces in the city in most of the cases illegally. They use text and deformed images to create their work, altogether with different media coming from the everyday life. They cover walls and illuminated advertising billboards with austere posters with letters in a strict order that assume the color of the ad posters underneath and take their light, parasitically. Their texts are part poetry, part an enquiry into our collective unconscious. They are intended to be encountered by commuters who don’t know they are art. They attempt to describe in public space what it feels like to live now.

Using, as their languages, Text, Photos, Images altogether with every day materials, they generate meanings through the confrontation of the verbal and visual ones, by creating relations between the codes.

Their recurring themes questions the notions of Beauty, the Construction of Iconicity, Identity, Alienation, Death, Society, Human Relationships, Sex, Façade, Power, Visual Culture,  the Political Messaging of Imagery and the Cliché.
