LLEGANDO A TU DESTINO Spanish for ‘Arriving to destination’ is the name of this new mural by Dourone, completed a few weeks ago in Estepona, Spain.
The 21 metre high mural portrays a woman who is, according to the artist, about to arrive to destination. The flowers are quite important in this work as they were inspired by this specific region of Spain. The value of respect, diversity and freedom continue to be omnipresent through these variety of symbols.
Dourone’s artworks are figurative and surrealistic, they combine bright colours with the illustrative line-work so characteristic of his paintings, always dominated by the female figure. Allegorical portraits that speak about womanhood and concepts like responsibility, solidarity, complementarity and creation, but also about an almost esoteric whole and infinity. The work reflects the artist’s so-called “sentipensante”* style revealing humanist ideals that question our place on earth and our responsibility in relation to this world.
(*)The term sentipensante comes from the Spanish words “feeling” (sentimiento) and “thinking” (pensar), and was coined by the Uruguayan journalist and writer Eduardo Galeano.
