:: Monday Murals: The Towns

Artist Marcelo Albuquerque usually paints imaginary landscapes of cities surrounded by mountains in a clear reference to Belo Horizonte. Here on this construction fence, he painted, in 2012, a small town rereading Guignard, except that mountain tops were ‘bitten’ by mining companies, losing the lyric air that Guignard mastered. In the second part, he opposes downtown and its old houses and high-rise buildings to the slums on the hills where kids naively fly kites.
Monday Murals are hosted by Oakland Daily Photo. Come to know some other mural examples.

O artista Marcelo Albuquerque geralmente pinta paisagens imaginárias de cidades cercadas por montanhas em uma clara referência a Belo Horizonte. Aqui neste tapume, ele pintou, em 2012, uma pequena cidade relendo Guignard, exceto que os cumes das montanhas foram ‘mordidos’ por empresas de mineração, perdendo o ar lírico em que Guignard era um mestre. Na segunda parte, ele contrapõe o centro e as suas antigas casas e arranha-céus às favelas nos morros, onde as crianças ingenuamente empinam papagaios.
