The Mexican edition of WAV in 2008 paid tribute to Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera welcoming “los fridos” Arturo Garcia Bustos and Arturo Estrada, assistants and talented artists Frida Kahlo and Rina Lazo original artist and assistant to Diego Rivera. And a short film directed by Iranian artist Danish Saroee documenting a conversation between Rina Lazo, Arturo Garcia Bustos, Arturo Estrada and Gregorio Luke, a recognized expert in the art of Latin America, was shown in the second edition of WAV in Barcelona.
5000 international visitors attended the 2011 edition in Barcelona, with artists, collectors and art enthusiasts participating in a rich calendar of collateral events organized for a culturally relevant public audience. The cultural part is fundamental for WAV that is not organized just to sell, but to show and meet the artists, to making the visitor experience interactive and exciting. WAV is one of the rare occasions where visitors have the opportunity to speak directly with the artists (who in any case will be happy to sell a work).
