New 12+1 mural by Mr.Sis for LGBT community’s rights 2019-06-18

New 12+1 mural by Mr.Sis for LGBT community’s rights

Mr.Sis, artist involved with the LGBT community, has made a new mural in the 12+1 project, initiative of the non-profit foundation Contorno Urbano. This mural is created regarding the PRIDE, which will take place this month, and claims the freedom to love and be loved, regardless of sex and gender of a person. The artwork “Solo un beso” represents two women falling into the void and trying to kiss, denouncing the persecution that the LGBT people suffer every day. The artist wanted to reflect the injustice that homosexual people experience in certain countries: detentions, kidnappings, extortion and murder. Fortunately, he says that in cities like Barcelona the situation is not that extreme, but he makes it clear that we should not forget it, because today a kiss between two people of the same gender still bothers a part of the society. Thus, the mural defends the freedom to love and kiss, for all people.

Mr.Sis is an illustrator by profession, but he also works in other artistic disciplines such as theater and dance. “Sis” comes from Siscu and “MR” is the initials of his surnames. He was born and resides in Barcelona, but he is always eager to go out and get to know the world and create. Increasingly attracted by the painting and the mural, the artist is in a continuous search for new supports and techniques to learn and improve every day. Beyond perfection, he considers it essential to allow oneself to make mistakes in order to create in a relaxed way, enjoying the result as much as the creative process.

The illustrator and muralist Mr.Sis, artist involved in the LGBT community, has made the mural “Solo un beso” in the new intervention of the 12 + 1 project in Barcelona

• The mural aims to be collaborative and encourages pedestrians to take a photo in front of him kissing a loved one and then share it in networks with the hashtag #SoloUnBeso

In order to experiment, the artwork he has done for 12+1 is collaborative. Passers-by are invited to take a photo in front of the mural kissing someone they love and to share the photo on social networks with the hashtag #SoloUnBeso, and thus give visibility to the rights for LGBT community.

The mural is part of the 12+1 project in Barcelona, carried out in collaboration with the Cotxeres Borrell civic center, the LGBT Center in Barcelona, the Casal Lambda, the Eixample District, the Diputación de Barcelona and the Department of Culture of the Generalitat of Catalunya. The artwork can be enjoyed until July 9, a day before a new artist intervenes the wall, located in Cotxeres Borrell.
