I am fine artist from Paphos, Cyprus and I specialize in the field of Murals. My techniques include painting and graffiti methods!

Artwork presentation

Some photos from the two recent Murals I have done in my city:

1.The Chernobyl Mural focuses on the change that can come after the destruction! So mainly that is reason that the girl with the mask comes through a sunset with a working ferris wheel! Also she holds a sunflower which is receiving the toxicity and radioactivity.
(7m x 15m) (Acrylic paint & Spray paint)

2.The Fish Mural focuses on the problems that our ocean is facing like toxic waste and plastic. The lionfish is wearing a mask to fight the toxicity and the lobster has a plastic bag wrapped on its body. Although, the octopus is the irony in that because is taking a selfie of the situation!

Licea

Licea is a French illustrator, painter and muralist. Her colorful surreal universe has its roots in ancestral initiatory tales, and the fantastic imagination. Connected to nature, it evokes the duality of our consideration for living beings, and through animals, the metaphor of our relationships between humans. Of the place that we are constantly looking for, between acceptance of the domination of some and the perpetual quest for freedom.

Laec

Chamonix, France

Self taught artist, Laec is born in Chamonix. She tried a lot of things as pencil, watercolors, acrylics and oils but she found her favorite medium with sprays. Walls have a specific energy. It's a gift to the street. And it touches everybody.
I also love the ephemeral side of the painting and my art, it's very philosophic
Artwork presentation

I paint portraits women. It’s the fémininity in its diversity. for me it’s very necessary in our societies to représent strong women. The values of feminity Like kindness, poesy, spirituality… Are the values our societies need most especially nowadays.

It’s the link for sisterhood. This link of sisterhood was broken, I tried to heal it painting women. Showing WE CAN be broken, and no matter what we passed through WE CAN get up, look up, and keep our heads high. To all my sisters in this world

Fan of several sports and metapsysical theories but also a fervent geek, he keeps is low profile as an artist, preferring to travel and learn with the knowledge of other people rather than surf in social networks.

Artwork presentation
“Existencial Naif” is the title for this mural wich questions the public about life itself with the million dollar questions that make us think about existence since child ages.
It's a look into the mirror of ourselves searching for comprehension of us and the others in theyr own questions. The artwork is designed for a large scale building wich will make the child figure seem a giant looking to itself, giving emphasis to the concept. The procedure of painting is about using paint buckets of acrylic colors and sprays also. The idea is to make the art look figurative, realistic, dreamish and make people truly think about the fact that no one really knows why exists but still existing

My concept use to change depends of the place, freestyle is a big part of my work, so it depends a bit of the vibes and the wall location.

It could be based in a powerfull woman, offering a magical animal/object to the viewers.

EMYART’S

Paris, France

After 5 years of training at the school of Boulle, she began her career in drawing as a Jewellery Designer, then changed her path and took the path of street art, which allowed her to live her passion for drawing to the fullest and express herself freely. Passionate about portraiture, she develops different colourful universes around faces and material effects. Each glance is worked with a lot of emotions and finesse, it is according to her “the most captivating element of her creations because everything is in the expression.

Having tried various drawing and painting techniques in the past, it is with oil pastel that she finds her style and uses it on all supports in the street in the form of a performance. Her style is part of a colourful universe mixing characters and material effects. She pushes the technique of pastel to effects of transparency and superimposition which brings depth and richness to her work.
Artwork presentation

All artworks are created with oil pastel, this technique is very rare in the street art middle. I like using oil pastel because I love the special texture with the support. Each time is different. It’s also an ecological technique because it’s just chalk with zero waste. And there are no harmful fumes like sprays for example. I use oil pastel for inside walls and outside walls. For the outside, I put a varnish to protect the colors.
About my work, I’m inspired by the idea of “rebirth” with different symbols like the phoenix and the tiger. I symbolize the rebirth with flame effects and a human face with a determined look. I create different compositions with cold colors and warm colors, which represents the passage from shadow to light. My creative world is very mystic.

1. WALL “DUA”
It represents two faces of woman with the cold colors in the left and the warm colors in the right

2. WALL “SPIRIX”
It’s the fusion between “SPIRIT” and “PHOENIX”, an artwork that refers to the rebirth.

3. PAINTING “METAMORPHOSE”
It’s a fusion between a woman and a leopard, the animal symbolizes strength like protection and a special power for the woman.

4. WALL “FREE ME”
This wall is like a “trompe l’oeil” because there is a broken glass effect to free the tiger. People can take a photo breaking the glass.

5. WALL “MILLE ET UN VISAGES”
Mix with a lot of woman faces and different colors. A search around expressions


(For the big wall I can use painting but I make the same effect as oil pastel.)
