This project is made up of a series of beauty murals by the street artist 'Rone,' who is known for his portraits. In this new street art series titled 'Empty,' the artist chose to portray a message that the media and popular artists often ignore.

The project reveals paintings of women's faces that are featured on decrepit buildings and walls. The women are stereotypically beautiful, offering an interesting juxtaposition to the crumbling walls around them. The purpose of the project is to make a statement about the fact that beauty is fleeting and does not last forever, nor does it make a person who they are.

These beauty murals work make a powerful statement that is often ignored by mainstream artistic and media-related platforms.
