One of our personal favourite artists Bordalo ii was recently in Las Vegas for the Life Is Beautiful festival thrown by Just Kids in Las Vegas. In his signature way of working, Bordalo used recycled materials found from all around the city and created a giant mural consisting of 4 dogs with a vibrant turquoise background in the background.
“In ‘A Corrupt Nature’ our traditional viewpoint of Las Vegas is flipped. Our focus is sets of lonely, forgotten trees and strange piles of detritus resembling pyramids, the casinos far in the background. Immediately, we’re reminded of the barren landscape that preceded our arrival. Through the use of color, these elements transcend their ordinary appearance and become symbols of Nature’s inherent power and endurance, patiently outlasting eras and species.” Maciek Jasik
Our friend Borondo is currently in the desert of Las Vegas, Nevada where he spent the last few days working on a brand new anamorphic mural. Invited for the second edition of the Life Is Beautiful Festival, the Spanish street artist just wrapped up another fantastic artwork which is entitled “Corner”. Borondo used the anamorphosis, which means the piece has a distorted perspective requiring the viewer to occupy a specific vantage point to reconstitute the image.
