A few days ago I got a few images from David de la Mano‘s last mural, titled “Wandering community (Comunidad errante)” and painted on an until then empty billboard in the La Blanqueada neighbourhood in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Not unlike the rest of his work, the new mural depicts a group of human silhouettes, all going in a particular direction which suggests the idea of migration. A monochromatic imagery that encourages emotions and ideas through a minimalist aesthetic. De la Mano’s silhouettes are used as narrative metaphors, through which he expresses poetic and personal visions of our human condition and the ways human perceive the world. In this case, a migrating clan or group of people that seem to be united towards a  particular goal. Just like the images we see below.
