“Luzinterruptus is an anonymous Madrid-based artist group that uses light and shadow to cast awareness on urban problems that often go unnoticed by authorities and residents. The members of the group come from a wide variety of disciplines and work together to apply their different specialities towards a collective project. They started their work in 2008,  anonymously showcasing and embellishing public areas that possess artistic potential. 

The works of Luzinterruptus draw on a multitude of artistic fields including photography, design and fine arts. The group met through common friends, and discovered a shared commitment to  urban art. They now create artistic interventions in public spaces and hope to inspire passing individuals. Their name ‘Luzinterruptus’ is a term composed of Luz, which means light in English, and interruptus which means switch in Latin. The name represents the philosophy of the group perfectly.” –
