Here are a few images of Spanish painter and muralist Lula Goce‘s last mural, recently finished in Cambados, Spain, the European city of wine 2017!
The mural features two kids, a little girl picking up some stones from the ground on one side, and the portrait of a vigilant young boy on the other. The two images are united by branches of beautiful pink flowers.
The idea behind the mural came to Lula after she heard that kids from the school this mural is painted on, had planted trees in an old stone quarry nearby that is now part of the establishment. The mural highlights how a green space is always a better place to be, and of course the idea that education incentives growth and development.
Here a few images of the work. I would love to hear your thoughts!
