We continue our ongoing coverage of Art Basel Miami 2015 with INTI and his newest piece. Painting at the iconic Wynwood Walls location, the Chilean street artist painted this beautiful piece entitled “Codo a Codo”.
Translating to “Elbow to Elbow” from Spanish, it took about five days for INTI to wrap up this piece showing a young couple holding hands. A shovel and a sword are appearing on each side and the two figures are popping out against background made of purple and brownish leafs. The girl is holding an ear of corn while the boy is seen with an olive leaf.
INTI was born in the port city of Valparaíso, Chile. His name, translated into Incan means ‘Sun’. He began painting walls at around the age of thirteen and has not stopped since.
