The Spanish street artist Escif explores the power of concept.

Escif or street art with a sense of humour
Valencia - AUG 08, 2013

The Spanish street artist Escif began painting the walls of his native Valencia but over the years his murals have been spotted around the world. His personal style is a result of an ever evolving practice, in constant change and influenced by the artist's experience. Escif is not afraid to explore new horizons and over the years he's shown a great ability to adapt to new languages. 

But Escif's work is more about the value of the concept being shown than about the style or form. His subdued colors and simple lines transmit his humorous and often explicit comments of capitalism, politics and economy directly to his public. His final goal is to wake up sleeping minds. As the artist explains he understand "painting as an exercise of reflection that can be shared with people." His large scale murals are not decorative paintings, meant to call the attention over an abandoned wall. Instead Escif works with the wall, embedding his pieces in the context he choose and with colors that relate to what was already there.
