Walls of alleyways and abandoned buildings across Europe are marked by the bold brushstrokes of the art of Escif. The street artist has a cartoony but somber style of painting that brings melancholy to the appearance of his large-scale outdoor murals.

Commenting on collective and individual consciousness, as well as a social spirit by extension, the art of Escif may appear two-dimensional and charming at first, but a more invested look at the themes and caricatures impressed on concrete reveals a harrowing world. These scenes act as a haunting silhouette of the human condition as it is perceived by some. Stats for Social Commentary Graffiti Trending: Older & Warm
