This past Tuesday, Valencia-born artists Pichi and Avo installed their 85-foot-tall Neoclassical sculpture that was completely covered with their signature graffiti. The artwork took over one year to create with the artists having used wood and cardboard to create its towering structure. The giant piece was made for the annual Las Fallas festival in Valencia, Spain to commemorate Saint Joseph.
The pinnacle of the event happened on midnight on March 19 when the duo’s sculpture was set ablaze alongside 400 bonfires throughout the Spanish city. Get a closer look at the commemorative burning below.
For more standout presentations, take a look at teamLab’s immersive exhibition at TANK Shanghai.

? Tuesday 19 March 2019 was the finale of Las Fallas, our 26 metre sculpture entitled Procés Creatiu was set alight in Valencia. People have asked us are we sad to see a year’s worth of work disappear but as artists we have paid tribute to the local tradition, offering a piece of urban ephemeral art?”Everything flows, nothing stays still” as philosopher Heraclitus said ? @chopemdownfilms #pichiavo #falles2019 #valencia
