Livin' Streets Festival: Evoca1

For this years edition of the Livin' Street Festival in Graz, Austria Inoperable Gallery is curating a bunch of walls including this stunner by Evoca1. Taking a more traditional painterly approach to the mural entitled "Battered and Child" the piece evokes classic portraiture paintings dating back to the 1700's with an urban grittiness to it. Here he shows the humanitarian side of his work particularly with Sketches for Mankind, which raises awareness to important issues through art, with this mural perhaps referring to child abuse and how they are left to fend for themselves. For more progress and detail shots of this wall check out his site here.
