Murals for the month of June according to All City Canvas

This post is also available in: Español (Spanish)

Our selection of the murals of the month reflects the events that have taken place in recent weeks

The sixth month of the year rolled in amid protests, confinement, and pandemics, yet the murals of the month cut us some slack among all the chaos. Hence, we give you our monthly selection; don’t forget to follow the artists we present.

Sabotage al Montaje – Spain

The artist Sabotage al Montaje recently presented his new mural entitled Escenografía Alimentaria. A 150 square meter mural was painted in the neighborhood of Gracia, located in San Cristóbal de la Laguna, in Spain, where the artist lived for several years. Thus, the mural is a kind of gift on the part of the artist to the community of that area.

The mural shows the silhouette of a man and a woman with open hands and a farmer working the land in the center. Hence, it is a symbolic representation that highlights the importance of local consumption. Even more so in times of health and economic crisis that we are living.

John Pugh- Illinois

John Pugh presented his most recent piece Revolution in Ottawa, Illinois this month. This mural depicts two women dressed in 1920s outfits happily chatting at the top of the mural. Meanwhile, others open a rotating wall at the bottom.

One such women is the representation of artist Georgia O’Keeffe, known as the “mother of American modernism.” Inside the windows, the artist embodied Radium Girls, factory workers who contracted radiation poisoning by painting watches with radioactive light paint.

Banksy – England

In a previous post, we told you about the piece Banksy painted in memory of the late George Floyd. It’s a painting depicting an altar where a flag of the United States stands out, about to burn in flames because of a candle.

At the center of the mural is a portrait with a black silhouette that evokes the late African-American citizen. Around it lie flowers and other candles about to go out. In addition, the artist posted a strong statement on his Instagram regarding the US’s justice system.

Beast – Italy

As is usual in the artworks of the Beast Street Art Collective we see a contemporary collage with the silhouette of the writer Jack Kerouac in this mural sheathed in a modern dress and a cigarette in hand. The piece is titled You and whose army? which is an electric tower in the open countryside of northern Italy.

This is the first major piece made in Italy after more than 90 days of confinement due to the Coronavirus pandemic. So the work is a kind of celebration of the end of the quarantine imposed by health institutions.

Ashekman – Tripoli

Lastly, we end this list of the June murals with the huge piece by the artist duoAshekman entitledOperation Salam. An independent initiative to send a positive message to the world regarding the city of Tripoli.
