0 1a David de la Mano (Montevideo)

And here Spanish artist David de La Mano‘s latest wall in Montevideo, Uruguay.
‘Latitud’ (Latitude), as the piece is titled, is a good example of de La Mano’s work characterized by a monochromatic, strong and poetic imagery where the human figure plays a central role.
The round ‘landscape’ is here populated by ‘countless’ black human silhouettes over a white and round surface fragmented by something that can remind us of the latitudes of the Earth, hence the name of the piece.
The piece feels almost hypnotic and the viewer feels dragged towards to a specific point of the work, infinity comes to my mind.
