Although this piece by Argentinian visual artist Sofi Mele is quite small and also obscured by a fire extinguisher box it’s a real eye catcher and deserves to be shared.
The piece was originally much much bigger. By the time I arrived in La Tabacalera the whole right hand side had been painted over by something else. Plus that man standing to the right of the picture did not move for quite some time.
The piece is of a beautifully coloured rose in full bloom. The blues and greens (teal?) on the background really make the flower pop and the artists use of the can has resulted in some incredible fades at the bottom of the flower.
This was my first time encountering Sofi Mele’s work but hopefully it won’t be the last.
