Argentinian artist and muralist Elian is now in Germany where he recently finished this new mural for the STAMP Festival in Hamburg, Germany.
Titled “Exercise of Overlapping” and painted in earth tones, Elian’s new mural differs somehow from earlier work characterised by the use of bright primary colours. The new mural clearly shows an understanding for the surrounding architecture, not disrupting, but rather becoming part of it. The result is an interplay of colours and shapes that gives way to a balanced and elegant composition.
