El-decertor-open-walls-baltimore-1

El Decertor is currently in Baltimore where he recently painted this huge mural for Open Walls baltimore 2014.
El Decertor blends a broad palette of vivid colours on his large murals and illegal street pieces and his lifelike characters often have stone-faced looks.
This new mural, entitled “Migración” /”Migration”, shows the image of a man holding a broken key, the key to a building. What kind of meaning this new mural has is a bit tricky to decipher, maybe that migration doesn’t necessarily leads to a better life? What is a good life anyway, well, one thing I know, there is more important things than material wealth.
