Escif has created many murals worldwide. His projects stem from his investigations of the sites where he works, defending the autonomy and power of the people who live there. Immersed within Veduta, Escif partners with the artist and activist n3m3da to capture the everyday dynamics of its residents and users, to make visible a language different from the one that usually occupies public space. If walls are boundaries that condition relationships in cities, the artist thinks that creative acts such as writing or drawing on them are faults and perspectives that renew our common space. Walls must therefore be (re)conceived as free and autonomous. “Art [as a channel] that enables horizontal communication between people” thus lays bare, on the neighbourhood’s walls, the relationships and stories that are played out there.
