“Each thing in its own time”. We were asked to paint this wall last summer, but according to the building owner’s wishes we had to wait until the tomatoes in his garden were harvested.
This building is part of a quarter called “Garden City” in Donostia-San Sebastián, which was promoted at the beginning of the 20th century for lower incomes. Nowadays this zone is living a process of regeneration that has been long-awaited.
This mural was developed during 16 days of constant rain.

Según una hipótesis, el nombre de esta población procede del árabe "Faḥṣ Maŷrit" que significa Campo de Madrid ya que en época andalusí aquí estaban los campos de cultivo para abastecer a Madrid. Este municipio es considerado como el de mayor expansión demográfica de Europa ya que ha pasado de 500 habitantes en 1980 a más de 85.000 a día de hoy.
Con esta intervención pretendemos poner en valor el pasado en un espacio publicitario donde normalmente se presenta el futuro.
"Foolish head weary feet"
According to different studies, the river, sea and air form the city of Tarragona in Catalonia, are polluted because of the petrochemical industry. This is a taboo topic because this industry provides jobs in this zone. At the same time it damages the environment and public health. This mural is placed in the district of Pilar in Tarragona, very close to the petrochemical factories.

“The nature is here”
With this mural we intend to make the viewer aware of every detail of Winzerla’s natural setting. Winzerla is a district in Jena (Germany), a city that is known worldwide by the manufacturing of Carl Zeiss lenses.
We want to promote consciousness, make residents feel proud of their neighbourhood and incite them to take care of the surroundings.
This intervention is part of a project of landscape architecture and improvement of this zone formed by modernist housing built during German Democratic Republic.
