Borondo-Mimesis-London-1

Borondo is still in London where he just finished this new mural somewhere in the district of Hackney.
The new mural, entitled “Nemesis”, shows the image of a man (a self-portrait) in the process of covering his face with white paint. The word nemesis has different meanings and it’s usually connected to greek mythology and revenge, but I’m not really sure how that interpretation can fit here. The man covers his face, maybe as a way of protecting his identity or just revealing it, all depending in which directing we read the image. Interesting and intriguing piece as always.
