As you can see even with my shocking photography skills on display, Cranio Artes graced La Tabacalera with two smalls works in the basement.
Now regarding the photography here, in my defence my battery was almost out and we were heading out of La Tabacalera with some friends to go for some food and we were on the clock and these two pieces kinda caught me by surprise and and and…
Anyway, I’m not sure when these were done but Cranio had been in Madrid a few weeks before me to do a huge mural for Urvanity so maybe they were done within the same time frame or maybe they’ve been there for years, I really don’t know.
I find it quite funny to see such small pieces in such a location by such a big name artist, it’s pretty obvious he just likes to paint and leave his work wherever he can, which I find fascinating.
The pieces are of course of Cranio’s little blue Indians, his reminder of the Indigenous people of Brazil. As you can see one is completely naked whilst the other one has small Brazilian flag over his nether regions. What’s kinda funny is the naked one seems quite out going flipping the peace sign and facing towards the walkway whilst the covered character seems more shy and is facing towards the wall. A very interesting juxtaposition
