Now living in Amsterdam Street Artist Skount recently returned to his his hometown of Almagro in Spain where he created a poetic and metaphorical mural depicting our relationship to nature.
In his own words Skount explains ‘this mural depicts a surreal connection between humans and the natural environment that surrounds us, creating a relationship between environment and entity’.
Masks are a recurring theme in Skount’s work. The artist has been cleverly examining their meaning in his work for a few years now. The new mural shows colourful vegetation growing out to illustrate that connection.
‘The area around us nourishes us and gives form, comforting who we are and in turn fuses our inner selves with the space and the development of the environment around us. So in my opinion, it is very important to carefully select where to develop as an individual, because this is extremely linked to the environment around us’ he says.
Winter is almost upon us, let’s seat back and enjoy Skount’s latest creation.
