This exhibition of one of Spain’s most beloved and prolific graffiti artists has been made possible through the Museum of Public Art located in Old South Baton Rouge. This exhibition features an array of innovative aerosol, acrylic and mixed media large-scale portraiture. Other partners in the exhibition featured at The Gallery at Manship Theatre include LSU Museum of Art and Ann Connelly Fine Art.

Miguel Angel Belinchon Bujes (Belin), began his art career as a graffiti artist, tagging his city of Linares, Spain as a youth. Belin loved the street art he saw regularly, he viewed it as beauty made available for the public, this inspired him to create that of his own. Today, Belin exhibits throughout the world. With masterful dexterity, Belin traverses medium and theme; from painting and sculpture to clothing. One constant is his super hero theme. In the words of Belin “We all have the capacity for greatness...somewhere inside all of us lies a real super hero.”
