This wall by Elian is located in Müllheim. Cologne, Germany and was created for the CityLeaks Festival.

The main idea of the piece was to not force the neighbor into a specific moment of interpretation, but to ignore the idea of masterpiece and get confused with other possibilities. The main tool was to not generate a complex composition, without author features; searching for the harmony instead of protagonism, trying to balance it with the monumental scale.

Elian thinks that when you work in a neighborhood that already has very strong culture, you must observe and work carefully to give a point of view in the environment, instead of imposing a way of making things. A big mural may seem like a spaceship that came to force a daily life situation that in some point it end to use up.

Take a look at more images after the break and keep checking back with us for more mural updates from the street of Europe.
