Here a brand new mural by Brazilian “Grafiteiro” Nunca finished in Paris a couple of days ago. Entitled “Dança” (Portuguese for Dance), Nunca portraits a couple involved in what, at first sight, appears to be a deadly dance. Looking closely into the picture we realise that the forks which each figure is holding against his/her dance partner looks interlaced by the hair of our characters.
Its difficult not to draw some kind of comparison to Saner’s La conquista, even when the subject isn’t the same.
Nunca’s work is often described as full of narratives that tell about complex stories. Significant features of his art are a critical figurativism, the use of the city as a dynamic medium and an absence of the “pop art” influences characteristic of the mainstream of graffiti art (thumbs up for that!)
