Mexican artist extraordinaire Paola Delfin is currently in Ostend, Belgium where she just wrapped up an impressive new piece of work.
In toen for The Crystal Ship 2019 Festival, Paola spent several days up high working on this figurative monochrome mural. Standing at 40 meters high, this is one of Paola’s largest wall to date.
Paola Delfin is a Mexican artist whose work is mainly influenced by illustrations, organic forms and a mixture of unusual materials. Paola was born in Mexico City and remembers from the time she was very small, she always had a pencil and paper to help her visualize her own world through drawing. The topic she endeavors to explore relates to beauty and feminine sensibility. Through these female characteristics, Delfin is able to depict a vast range of incredible changes and contrasts where she attempts to give her work a life of its own.
The Crystal Ship is currently on its third annual edition and is curated by Bjørn Van Poucke. This year an additional 16 new murals have been created in the city of Ostend.
