Here a few images of this new and amazing wall painted by Polish muralist Michał Wręga aka SEPE in Warsaw, Poland and finished just a couple of days ago.
Titled “Education System” and curated by ‘Street Art Doping’ in cooperation with ‘Do Dzieła’ Foundation, the new mural depicts a crowd gathered to watch a puppet show. The mural has been painted in red and blue tones adding a certain touch of drama to the scene which according to the artist is a bitter commentary on highly visible crisis of values that affects not only Polish, but also worldwide policy and its subordinate media.
Using the metaphor of a grotesque puppet theater, the artist draws attention to the increasingly brilliant and disturbing “rhetoric of war” present not only in the world of politics and the media, but also in social life – getting closer and closer to ourselves.
Maintaining a permanent sense of threat and the inevitable clash. Constantly searching for and identifying the enemies.
Force solutions over dialogue and debate. Fist as the only fair and final argument in any discussion. Rifle instead of outstretched hand. The walls instead of bridges.
