In this Edition of Kufa’s Urban Art Festival we check out the latest work of Spanish artist Julieta XLF and what a cheerful mural she has created on a new Rehabilitation Centre for drug addiction in a small city of Luxembourg. “Recently I was invited to take part at 2018 edition of Kufa’s Urban Art Festival in Luxembourg. The philosophy of Kufa’s Urban Art is based on a bottom-up approach and offers a large range of pedagogical activities in the public space, artistic interventions and open air festivals. The project applies to the whole population, with a special focus on vulnerable social groups. I was invited to paint the facade of the new Centre for Drug Addicts in Esch Sur Alzette were I painted “NICTE-NOCHE”
From greek mythology, Nicte (Noche) was born from Khaos and with Darkness conceived the Light and Day. She accompanies in the shadows waiting for a new dawn. The goddess of the night, one of the primordial gods who emerged as the dawn of creation.”
