Art is in the creation of you and the creation of I. It is the birth of ideas, the great harmony of the modern and ancient times. Art is when you look up to the skies, art is when look down on your hands. Art is to feel and to cherish your abilities. Art is your reflection on the mirror, like a painting of Varmeer.
had the pleasure of working with @mowcka on this intervention for the event "Districte 11" organized at @naubostik to remember the friendship between Barcelona and Sarajevo (Bosnia) during the Balkan Wars. Districte 11 was a project led by Catalan Mayor Maragall in the 90s. It was a time when Barcelona was gearing up towards its 1992 Olympics and Sarajevo was amidst brutal conflict. Through this project, Barcelona recruited funds -books, economic aid, artist exchanges, etc. and supported the civilians in Bosnia.
The event held today was to commemorate this project and highlight the importance of creativity and the arts as a way to share the history of the Balkan Wars and Districte 11.
In this mural we see the skyline of both Sarajevo (to the left) and Barcelona (to the right).Both cities are united by the iconic Sarajevo bridge. These are also connected by the artist's iconic female characters that represent humanity's healing energy, the artist's interpretation on peace and her perspective of unity after the analysis of this conflict and the importance of Districte 11 in Europe today.
Once again, it was a pleasure working on this project!
