Recent murals in London (corner of Brick Lane, pix 4-6) Germany and Italy by Spanish artist David de la ManoAhead of an upcoming show in London entitled ‘Adrift’ Hang Up Pictures sez of him;

In a world of those forced to flee, of poverty, of war and violence, David de la Mano paints his haunting figures as shadows looking for their place in the world. All united, they are travelling to a destination unknown. Boats with broken sails and women with animal heads drift without direction but are all linked by an uncertain journey.

More of de la Mano’s work here.
