POLAND: Streetart Warsaw – Mała 8 – LOW BROS

The LOW BROS about their artwork: “With our mural „Shrine / Świątynia“ we keep on working in the area of conflict between tradition and progress. In the district Praga, where the mural is situated, you can find endless shrines with statues of virgin Mary in the backyards and gardens, which set a colorful contrast to the buildings around. We like the fact that people used to actively participate in creating their own surrounding. A desire we felt as well when starting to paint in public spaces. Back then we felt the need to speak for our peer group and bring our own visual ideas into a city which seemed to represent only earlier generations. It was a feeling of being able to change the given. An aspect which we don’t see provided by these catholic icons. But with acknowledging their importance for the peoples historical identity, we took these shrines as a foundation to create something that leaves more space for new visions. The digital generation is used to browse through layers of information. The top layer in our work, shows an abstracted photo of a virgin Mary shrine surrounded by flowers. This mosaic of pixels shall invite to rearrange them and find new ways to move forward.” – This artwork was created in 2018.
