Le 4eme MUR: Hyuro

Going on right now in Niort, France is the annual Le 4eme MUR street art festival put together by the Winterlong Galerie. This beautiful new piece was painted by the lovely Hyuro - "Il est interdit d´interdire" (It is forbidden to forbid), in the words of the artist "this wall doesn’t speak solely through context, but it does speak about our time. It tells of human beings, immigrants or refugees alike, any person who for any number of reasons feels the need to move somewhere else. It speaks of our innate indifference to distance and our lack of interest for nameless and faceless people. It speaks to the internal contradiction between principles, rights, and our own self interests." For more info head on over to Hyuro's blog here.
