'Phlegm' Mural Dazzles at the Bloop Festival in Ibiza

{SummaryTitle}

Recently unveiled at the Bloop Festival in Sant Antoni de Portmany, Ibiza, this Phlegm mural is an imaginative piece of public art. Standing at four stories high, the mural consists of two mechanical arms with each arm operating the other. The two arms are being attended to by Phlegm’s signature characters.

The work reminds me of the Industrial Revolution. That time saw great change in the world for better and worse. This piece captures that idea by showing the wonders of mechanics along with the darker and more depressing tints that defined this period. These qualities are coming to define our own era as well. Great advances along with great change for better and worse.

Phlegm is an experienced mural artist who is based in the UK. His style is whimsical and slightly grim, and his work could be compared to the artistic style of director Tim Burton.
