DESEANDO ALAS (WISHING FOR WINGS)
'Deseando Alas' is my latest mural that I created for the GarGar festival in Penelles near Lerida in Catalunya. The mural project is quite special as it is one of the examples of how muralism can draw attention to the plight of loss of population in rural areas. The GarGar festival uses muralism to bring interest and people back to the town of Penelles without the worry of the negative aspect of gentrification, which is an evident issue in cities. The use of the hashtag symbol in the design alludes to the need for more people to see what is happening here, and in rural towns across the world. The bird in this mural is an endangered bird that is used as a symbol for this festival.
