‘Muralismo Morte’ features some of the best international artists involved in this new underground art movement revealing the vibrancy of new muralism as it rises from the shadows or urban spaces in Metropolises worldwide. Art interventions in urban spaces, also known as street art, have enjoyed growing popularity. ‘Muralismo Morte’ delves deeper into the world of contemporary urban muralism, featuring the large-scale murals that grace the streets, abandoned buildings, backyards and building facades of cities everywhere. The contrast is stark, from much celebrated pieces in prominent places to those hidden in anonymous, decayed ruins that never see the light of day. Urban art activist Jens Besser uncovers these urban treasures offering special insights into this emerging scene that is coloring our urban spaces. There is an incredible diversity in the work of these new muralists both in style and application; with artists expressing the abstract, the surreal and the realistic mixed with moods of exhilaration and melancholy. All murals interact playfully with the unique charm of the environment in which they were made adding to the sublime beauty of the pieces.
