The Drawing's on the Wall Through the Art of Escif

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.
