Recent murals by Obie Platon

Obie Platon, recently interviewed, has traveled from Europe, where he created astonishing murals for Walk&Talk Azores Festival and for Színes Város Festival in Budapest, all the way to Shanghai, where he addressed issues related to pollution, traffic and other problems that China is currently facing.

His street art interventions combine geometry, patterns and symbols that derive from the urban architecture, various social contexts, depending on the environment, the culture and lifestyle of each city he visited. In most cases, we notice contrasts between the urban landscape and the natural one, an alternative where individuals and society as a whole may escape the pressure of the metropolis and find peace in their connection with nature and the universe.
