Polish artist Sepe recently returned home from his trip to US and got up on a cherry picker to work on a new piece for Street Art Doping fest. Organized in in cooperation with Do Dzieła Foundation the new mural in Warsaw is titled “Education System”.

Following his ongoing series of work that is incorporating grotesque and circus iconography while addressing actual events, this mural is a bitter commentary on crisis of general values. Highly visible not only in Polish, but also worldwide media, this occurrence creates a state of global tension and feeling of threat. Using the metaphor of a puppet theater, Sepe draws attention to the “rhetoric of war” present in the world of politics, media, and social life. This situation results in “forced solutions over dialogue and debate, fist as the final argument in any discussion, rifle instead of outstretched hand and walls instead of bridges.” Painted with very limited color palette and using a simple, yet powerful light effect, the finished piece is standing out as a great warning within its surrounding.

Check out more photos of this recently finished piece after the jump and let us know your thoughts on the subject in the comment area.

About Sasha Bogojev

Growing up skateboarding I always enjoyed board graphics, Toy Machine adds and art section in Thrasher magazine. Around that time I started flirting with graffiti which eventually lead to appreciating street and urban art. Few years later I ended up with an Internet based job. Too much online time on my hands resulted in getting involved in art related forums, and finally writing for various art websites.
