The De Wilde family had been building their perfect garden for years. A beautiful terrace, an equally beautiful pond and lots of greenery. Only the side facade of their family home could use some colour.
During a graffiti walk with Wallin' we got talking and planned an exploratory visit. Mr. De Wilde was a doctor and his work required a lot of motor precision.
Wallin' immediately reminded us of an Argentinean artist Carolina Favale, whom we had seen at work at the Loures Arte Publica Festival in Portugal. Her work always revolves around dynamic compositions in which hands are central. The link with Mister De Wilde's profession was thus made in a nuanced way. Add a nice dose of colour on top and just like the garden you get a wall that blooms. The only difference, on the mural the family has no weekly maintenance work!
Do you also have a garden wall, side wall or other wall at home that you don't know what to do with? We turn every wall into a story that suits you with the right artist. Feel free to contact us for an exploratory talk.
She studied at the School of Visual Arts Antonio Berni, from where she graduated in Visual Arts majoring in Printmaking. Since 2010, she has been doing murals using spray paint, influenced by various urban art manifestations. The street allows one to create a language that combines different forms of action and direct intervention. This language is the result of different searches for appropriation and reinterpretation of elements of Latin American and European visual art, (specifically from Symbolism, Pre-Columbian Art and Latin American Mural Art) translated into spray paint. Her main interest is to create timeless and calm spaces, which invite contemplation and reflection, questioning about different aspects that make and interpellate the human condition. For this artist, the artistic practice is, mainly, an authentic space for self-knowledge through which one can construct meaning based on personal experiences.
