Cristina Daura mural reflects human introspection

Cristina Daura made this month the mural of 12+1 of Barcelona, ​​bringing a vision of the human mind, through emotions, thoughts and memories. is an illustrator from Barcelona with a particular style, an approach to the mix between classic comics and Fauvism.

Cristina studied illustration in La Massana, complementing her studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore).After spending several years with jobs that did not make her happy, she decided to embark on what filled her the most: drawing comics and illustrating in her own way. Her artwork plays with the mind, using primary colors in harsh, punk and somehow macabre illustrations, where decapitated or faceless people are often protagonists. She currently works for press around the world, music groups, books and any other type of project that makes you reflect and seek answers through art.

 

This artwork reflects the change that we live in certain moments of our lives. As if it were an x-ray, the artist has represented a head full of things, thoughts, emotions. On the one hand, the flowers symbolize the illusion and the deepest dreams of human beings. On the other, the rocks are destructive and cause a transformation.

So, in that head, which could be any of us’, the stones are burying and oppressing the flowers and, at the same time, generating a change in our way of being and understanding life.
The mural is part of the 12 + 1 project in Barcelona, ​​made on the wall of the Cotxeres Borrell Center, in the Eixample district. This is the tenth mural of the 12 + 1 Barcelona 2019 project. The work can be enjoyed until August 13, after which the mural will give way to the next intervention.
