Sergi Caballero, Pau Nubiola and Marcel.lÌ Antunez Rocca made up the collective Art Total Grup Los Rinos and their activities spanned many different fields. Initially the collective was mainly involved in graffiti. The group painted bullseyes in public places and the concentric black and white circles became their logo. The bullseye moved to other media, such as the bodies of animals, leading to the bullseyeing of sheep and goats. They also created a headpiece topped by a bullseye which the Rinos wore as they walked through the streets. Lastly they designed and made up their own Rino suits, using a fabric printed all over with bulleyes. All this work was recorded in a publication containing photos of the graffiti and all the actions related to the bullseyes as well as the Rinos' opinions about art. From 1987 onwards the Rinos' activities extended to other areas. In May of the same year they carried out a large-scale mural painting called Atlas, in conjunction with the collective Gegant. The mural was painted on the side of a building in Barcelona by means of hanging down from a balcony. (This action would be repeated in 1990 in Yokohama, Japan.) In spring 1987 they presented a video performance called Rinosacrifici portraying the Rino's crude and domestic vision of sacrifice. This is the only publication of this underground group containing photos of the graffiti, all the actions as well as the Rinos' opinions about art.
