Argentinian artist Pastel is now in Spain invited to take part of the Milestone festival in Girona for which he painted one of his beautiful and signature murals.
The mural was painted at Font de la Pólvora a gypsy neighbourhood inhabited by a multicultural community that enjoys using the surrounding public space as an extension of their homes contributing in this way to develop and cultivate their rich cultural identity, customs and traditions.
Making use of his characteristic style and imagery, Pastel introduces us into the natural world and heritage of the place in a candid, peaceful and interesting way by focusing on the native flora of the place. Certainly a breath of fresh air for the community.
