Argentinian artist Francisco Bosoletti was last September in Spain invited to take part of this year’s DesOrdes Creativas festival in the city of Ordes, Spain.
Titled ‘Memoria’ (Memory) the mural is part of a series of works inspired by the concept of “Oblivion” in an attempt to give new life to spaces that today are believed to be lost. The mural is inspired by its decaying surroundings and based on an old photograph found in Ordes. The image of a woman’s face that in the hands of Bosoletti establishes an intimate dialogue with the surrounding space and the viewer, highlighting the idea of the passing of time and oblivion. In Bosoletti’s mural each colour, texture and material used is part of one or many stories. A lovely and poetic mural that speaks about nostalgia.
