Calligraphy Mural in Vienna by Said Dokins

In this mural entitled Eclipse, Said Dokins refers to the multiplicity of possible definitions of a city like Vienna, asking passers-by to define or tell a story of their own experience in the place using a single word. Each word that people provide, Dokins integrates into his mural intervention, creating a single collective definition of Vienna from the multiplicity of definitions, encrypted in his personal calligraphic style. In this work, Dokins shows that there is no single vision of the city or the world, that there is no uniqueness of reality, but that the agency of art could be precisely articulating or harmonizing polyphony.

Mexican artist Said Dokins has developed a body of work based on his reflections on history, collective memory, and participation. For more than a decade he has collected various stories through interviews, videos, objects, photographs, words, drawings, or actions that serve as an object of deconstruction, transferring these stories to his own visual language.

Through calligraphy and the encryption of signs, he creates cartographies, questions, or representations in which he values ​​contextual statements and where those thoughts become form.
