New York-based artist Marela Zacarias creates beautiful, sculptural art murals that look like soft swathes of material but are in fact solid creations.

New York City is known for its incredible, site-specific art murals. Installations, graffiti work and huge artworks painted directly onto walls and public objects add to the aesthetic and spirit of a neighborhood, or beautify urban spaces that can often be gray and grim. Marela Zacarias' bold, geometric works belong to this tradition of art.

The Mexican-born artist's murals resemble silk scarves blowing in the wind, but are actually solid, sculptural pieces. One of the most common base materials in the art murals is window screens. Zacarias' art is currently on exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum.
