Spotlight: INTI Mural @ Grenoble Alpes Street Art Fest Southeastern, France
The mural by INTI “A PALE BLUE DOT / UN PUNTO AZUL PÁLIDO” recently debuted, July 2020 Grenoble Alpes Street Art Fest .
Many of the artists who presented in Saint-Martin-d’Hères wished to alert the public to the ongoing ecological disasters we all face. To do this, they appeal to their world and their aesthetics to show both the gravity of our situation, but also to awaken what is best in us to initiate change as that is necessary and urgent.
…Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. (Carl Sagan)…
Influenced by the Street Art scene as much as by the tradition of South American Muralism, Inti’s luminous and symbolic painting immediately evokes its South American culture. The artist from Valparaiso, a Chilean city known worldwide for its urban art, began painting in the streets at the age of 14, drawing graffiti. It was around this time that he decided he would never stop creating. He remembers those moments when everything was perfect for drawing, the light, the drawing board, the coffee, the cigarette. He felt happy and serene. Since then he has always been on the lookout for those perfect creative moments.
