Matlakas hits the streets of South East London with the iconic pieces. The artist through his work analyzes society and human misbehaviourwhich he then portrays with a witty attitude.
On the left the mural in red is entitled “The brainwash”. Matlakas explains that in society and in each different culture we are told how the world functions to then discover that we have still a lot to learn and find the real way of how to behave in the world. We are all brainwashed in different degrees, our role is to slowly find our own truth.
The painting in the black background is entitled “What to Fight for”.
This work is about the corona outbreak and the mess it created worldwide. Matlakas criticizes the fact that the danger of war and conflict is and was always there and that deaths are created by the biggest virus on earth, humans…The lock down and the pandemic seems to be the only issue on earth, but there is much more to think about!
