Our friend Hyuro just sent us some images from her latest mural which was just completed somewhere on the streets of Requena, a municipality in eastern Spain, in the province of Valencia, located on the left bank of the river Magro.
This wall is located next to the main Theater of Requena and is entitled “El Saludo”.
We could understand that what used to be a street is now a stage. The man on the street is an actor who seems to settle for mediocre roles. We are not authentics, we can presume to live a state similar to freedom, since being nothing it allow us to become anything. Be taken into account but keep hiding our true face. It is always a game, a game of and between appearances.
The study of roles has a long history in Western thought. One of the oldest Western ideas about human society is to conceive society itself as a theater.
This image represents the greeting that an actor makes at the end of a play. Every day that takes place on the street gives rise to a new play in which each and every one of us turn out to be a protagonist. –Hyuro
Take a look at some more detailed images after the break and keep checking back with us for the latest updates from the streets of Europe and beyond.
