a graphic artist who i have posted about already, parra, has recently been comissioned to do this mural on a 60ft wall in san francisco’s moma. when speaking to it’s nice that he describes it like this: “It’s a huge 60 feet wide white wall with a variety of weirdly shaped characters revolving around the sentence: “She was alone most of the time, she got weirded out easily.” The text is inspired by Kate Bush. For some reason I listened to her entire oeuvre when making this piece back in Amsterdam, including her latest album. I started reading about her and created that line of text. It’s also a bit about me, about keeping the world at a distance and closing the curtains for three days straight.” the text flows with extreme ease and, most of the time, is very easy to follow. the bizzare charactes which accompany it almost take you into a dream-like fantastical world which is brought back into the graphice through the use of only black and white. a really interesting look at the intersection between text and imagination.
