An inspirational mural was finished last week by Spanish born artist Jerez de la Frontera aka Skount in Amsterdam. Its title is: “Tempus Fugit”.
Inspired by the quote of “Tempus Fugit” derived from a verse of the Georgics of the poet Virgil, “Sed fugit interea, irreparavile tempus fugit” (But time is lost , which never will renew). Skount painted this mural as a reflection of the time that eludes us, living life as a pursuit of distant goals that can sometimes be a burden, rather than live as a set of present moments, planned in the short term; time flies, time slips away, time is diluted and only leaves us memories for us to reflect on.

Skount’s oneiric masked characters beckon the viewer from the urban environment into their mysterious and playful dreamscapes. The great playwrights of Skount’s youth formed a lasting impression, where he regards life as a wonderful play, in which everyone has a role. Skount’s irrepressible curiosity for other cultures has inspired him to travel and study different forms of creativity and traditions around the world. Skount has worked and exhibited throughout Spain, Europe, Israel, China, Japan, Australia, Mexico and the United States.
You may consider a modest donation — however much you can afford, when it comes from the heart, it’s the kind of gesture that makes us warm with appreciation.
