SETH: “Cecile’s house” new mural on the wall of the kindergarten school on Mouffetard Street in Paris. This painting is the result of my meeting with Cecile, a shopkeeper in the neighborhood since 40 years, whose souvenir and gift store has suffered greatly from the latest restrictions linked to COVID. Cecile wanted to see one of my paintings while drinking her coffee in the morning, her wish is finally realized.
AG PNT: I thought it was only fitting to name this piece Eve. Even tho it was an after thought, having this wall around the corner from my snake, I wanted to make this piece look like she’s the one that painted the snake. I have one more wall to do while I’m here but I’m happy to see this one finished. Good times with good people! ♥️
Daniel Popper: “UMI” – Meaning Life in Swahili and Mother in Arabic. 1 of 5 new works from the Human+Nature exhibition opening today at the The Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois. Surrounding the base of the Earth Mother we have planted Virginia Creepers. I am looking forward to watching them grow and the artwork evolve over time in this beautiful space. Made from steel & GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete), 20ft tall. The pieces will on display for 1 year. May you all enjoy interacting with her as much as we enjoyed creating her.
TARDOR ROSELLÓ: Like the condemnation of Atlas, they carry the weight of the world behind them. The cargo that these female porters pass through the border is considered carry-on luggage and is therefore tax-free, a business that unscrupulous merchants and drug traffickers know well. Again and again they have to roll, drag, hold, push again and charge through the tumult. “You must always look ahead because you must feed the family, among those who carry the burden there are also young people of 14 and 15 years old, I will never let my children do this work” Nora, a carrier for 16 years. I recommend you to seek more information about the situation of these people.
Jofre Oliveras: This mural talks about the reflection we have in our environment and how there are individual actions that can change the perception that people have of us and how this changes our perception of the world. We are talking about a real story, which represents a large group of people. It is the story of Marina Solà that has participated in the creation of this mural. A girl who, through the questioning of her sexuality, one day gets a radical hair cut. This action leads people to identify her as a young boy and her experience in her environment begins to be very different in terms of how people treat her. Because people stop sexualizing her and she begins to feel safer. This story is very representative of LGTBI community, of the roles we have artificially imposed as men or as women in our society.
Why do you link to Instagram pages rather than the artists’ own pages? Do you realise that intelligent people who do not have Instagram accounts cannot access it? Aren’t you ashamed to promote Facebook, one of the most evil entities in the world?
