This lovely mural was painted by Paola Delfin, a Mexican artist whose work is mainly influenced by illustration expressing beauty and a feminine sensibility through delicate drawing and organic forms.
Painted for the always amazing mural project ArtUnitedUs curated by Iryna Kanishcheva and Geo Leros, “Shelter” features the image of a young woman with her arms crossed over her chest in a protective, but at the same time delicate and peaceful position. She doesn’t fear because she is safe. “Shelter” refers to the fact that we all have a safe haven, whether it is a person or a place we feel comfortable with.
The artist explains the piece as follows:
