I’ve owed you this post for more than a year and today, finally, and taking the advantage of the fact that this is the last one of this academic year, I think it’s one of the best moments to do so, like the end of “season”.
More than a decade ago, in countries like the USA, with New York in the lead, or the United Kingdom, with London as one of the mirror-cities to look to, people started talking about the pop-up shops. It was a fashion concept that started being successful among prestigious chefs, big designers or new entrepreneurs who wanted to put themselves and their creations out there. It was a time when this type of shops or spaces weren’t neither that extended nor known like they can be today. In fact, last week at least three of these pop-ups were held in Bilbao. From my tour around them I take some E.P.that I want to present you. I want to take this opportunity to introduce them to you, although I hope to talk about them more closely in future posts.

If you have an exhibition space, if you need emerging artists to exhibit their work at your artistic and/or cultural spaces, if you are part of a group of artists, if you are looking for artists for a project or if you need to illustrate a book, edit a collection of stories or a soundtrack, you are reading the post you need.
Some years ago… one 6th of December the protagonist of this post was born in Donostia-San Sebastian (Gipuzkoa). Her name is Patricia Arruti. If there is something that characterizes Patricia is her sweetness, naturalness, proximity, happiness and a certain halo of shyness that decreases once you get to know her. Today I would like to highlight the artist that this entrepreneur woman represents.
