Escif will paint a 400m2 mural until May 25th -Mural de la Salut, Sant Feliu de Llobregat (Barcelona, Spain).
After an 8 months process, with an international open call and two jury’s, Escif was the artist finally chosen to translate the historical fight and citizens values in the 400m2 wall in Plaza de la Salut in Sant Feliu de Llobregat, Barcelona, Spain.
The famous Spanish artist spent 10 days in the city for an artistic residence in order to know better the story of the place and the neighbours, the main characters of a social fight in the 70´s. The residence was planned to create thoughts about the past, but also the present and future of the city.
An exceptional opportunity to see an international artist working in context.
The Valencian artist, internationally recognised for his originality and the deep reflection and irony of his creations, is also a great activist, fighting against gentrification or for the environment. His intervention proposal in Sant Feliu wants to reflect on the historical memory, the neighborhood struggle movement and the hopes of the inhabitants of Sant Feliu.
The artist will paint from May 15 to 25, and the official inauguration of the mural will take place on Saturday the 26th at 12am in the Plaza de la Salut.
