Spanish artist David De La Mano transforms mundane city walls into a montage of silhouettes, intertwining the human form with nature. His monochromatic imagery first appears as a simple whole slowly pulling the viewer into the chaos of human existence- thought, isolation, communication, rejection, function, reflection…

De La Mano oftentimes collaborates with artist Pablo S. Herrero who founded “Movimiento Señora,” a mural project with the intention of developing murals in urban outer-lying and marginal areas containing abandoned spaces. “We try to find a logic in the aesthetics without losing the reason why we use public spaces: provoking ideas, fostering looks and breaking the neutrality.”
