For those of you who aren’t familiar with the work of artist, Sebastien Waknine, this video will be a superb introduction. The Barcelona artist participated in Murs Plàstics and brought his art to the streets of Manresa (Barcelona), in particular to a building divider wall that has now become something better.
‘In this piece, the presence of the giant, twisted, and fallen indigenous figure is intended to remind the community that there are still natives fighting everyday for their lives and liberties. We can’t forget our roots.’ S. Waknine
