New pieces by Pablo S. Herrero and David de la Mano

We are happy to see a new collaboration between two artists who have always inspired us with their thoughtful and extraordinary interventions in the public space. Earlier this year, Pablo S. Herrero and David de la Mano painted a new mural and smaller pieces in two peripheral neighborhoods of Salamanca (Los Alambres and El Arrabal), part of their project to bring street art far from the centers of the cities, to peripheral neighborhoods and villages.

The pieces harmoniously integrate into the spaces where they are painted, reminiscent of a time when there was a balanced relationship between man and nature, a long forgotten way of life, simple and beautiful despite its challenges. When looking closely to these works, there is no sense of intrusion, but rather of natural continuity and careful highlight of what already exists on the walls of a neighborhood that seems threatened to vanish. Together, the artistic interventions of Pablo and David convey a powerful emotional and nostalgic state, deriving from an awareness of the things we as humans have lost and need to preserve and recover until all simply becomes nothing but a mere memory.
