During the last few months, over a dozen internationally famed street artists, among these INTI, Fintan Magee, Alexis Diaz or Ever have been working hand in hand with Calle 13 to create art in all forms and spaces using the word “MultiViral” as a starting point.
Calle 13’s objective is to open new spaces for artists around the world.  Through their artwork, whether it is renowned or not, we aim to redefine originality and find the inspiration and motivation to continue creating.

Calle 13 is an urban alternative band founded in Puerto Rico in 2005 by René Pérez Joglar (“Residente”) and Eduardo Cabra Martínez (“Visitante”). They’ve been recognised with 2 Grammy Awards, and 19 Latin Grammy Awards; to date, they hold the record of most Latin Grammy wins by a band. they have traveled and toured several times throughout Latin America, the United States, and Europe and are recognized internationally for their powerful lyrics and distinct musical fusions. 
Calle 13 consider themselves lucky to be able to live from their craft, but there is much more to them than writing and performing on stage. And this is what motivated them to start the project “Multiviralyzing Art”.
