EKR, el graffiti en la ciudad


 (Mex) De la expresión contestataria en las calles del Bronx de los años setenta a todo el mundo; de lo ilegal en paredes públicas y transportes colectivos, al ‘arte’ de museos o galerías: el graffiti se ha expandido por el mundo como un “cáncer artístico callejero”, que creó su propio lenguaje y ha intentado “devorar” la contaminación visual que existe en los espacios públicos de la ciudad de México.

La anterior premisa fue una de las intenciones iniciales del grupo grafitero (crew) EKR (Expresión Contra Represión),que nació en los años noventa en la colonia Agrícola Oriental, para después intentar unir a jóvenes artistas de diversas disciplinas y áreas de la urbe metropolitana.

“En un principio la intención de conformar un crew era competir con otras organizaciones grafiteras como el SF, DFK, CKS, LEP, ERA, CHK, entre otros; ya que había mucha contaminación visual y gente que pintaba y expandía su arte por toda la ciudad. Fue un inicio egoísta y territorial en la incipiente carrera del graffiti; mucha banda era de Neza, y pues intentábamos unir los cuatro puntos cardinales de la zona metropolitana y crear un tipo de ‘carnalismo’ artístico”, explica Oswaldo Méndez, el “Asco”, tatuador y grafitero del EKR.

Pero en la actualidad el arte del graffiti ha dejado su caracter contestario e ilegal, enfatizó el “Asco”, ya que ha empezado un proceso de legitimación y comercialización, dejando casi su carácter ilegal callejero, para decorar espacios públicos gubernamentales, galerías, museos, negocios y centros comerciales.

Por ello el graffiti se puede dividir en “callejero y de galería, ilegal y legitimado. En lo personal no me disgusta, pero lo que me incomoda es que la gente que ya es de galerías se cree superior a la banda de calle; olvidando que este movimiento artístico nació en las calles como una forma de expresión contestaría”, sentenció Omar Chávez, “Telma” EKR, quien mezcla el grafiti con el óleo y otros materiales para exponer en galerías.

Pero a decir del EKR, que es uno de los crews más viejos del urbe, con más de 18 años de vida, se ha “diversificado como una familia”, en donde convergen diversas expresiones artísticas como el graffiti, la pintura, la música, el diseño grafico, la arquitectura, la foto y el video.

“Nos tocó el principio del graffiti en la ciudad de México, ahora ya hay muchos crews o colectivos, pero nosotros ya estamos diversificados, ya que unos se casaron o se fueron, por ello, muchos viven de esto y otros lo hacen como un pasatiempo o gusto, como una hermandad, como un estilo de vida”, aseveró Rodrigo García, cuyo sobrenombre o ‘placa’ es “Video”.

Actualmente el EKR está compuesta por más de 30 integrantes entre los que se encuentra la banda de hardcore Propia Actitud; los Mc’s Duque Castillo, el Serio, el Patrón; los grafiteros: Reak (perteneciente a Grafitearte) el Disco, el Resto, Hert, Selk, Wons, Bago, Letal, Nikser (que ha pintado en Toronto); la ceramista y artista objetual, Itzia Valencia, entre muchos otros artistas. http://www.fotolog.com/ekr_crew/61221739, http://ekr357crew.blogspot.com/
