Contemporary artist Elian Chali is back with a fresh, new mural in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The mural entitled “Más allá del clamor pegajoso/más acá de la prórroga indefinida” is painted over a 28 x 15 meter facade. It showcases Elian’s signature style with bold colors, clear-cut shapes and flat surfaces.
Elian’s work focuses on creating a dialogue with the urban structure, allowing the characteristics of each wall to participate in the mural. He identifies with urbanism and architecture more than with muralism and graffiti.
His aesthetics are inspired by the Pop-Art, minimalism, Russian constructivism, and neoplasticism. Through his work, the artist seeks to open a discussion that goes from the social problems to the poetry of the habitat in which he creates. Always working with a sketch in hand, Elian’s art has evolved from 3D graffiti to flat images. His works are composed through basic geometry and abstraction, and influenced by architecture, climate, and the current socio-political situations.
Through numerous travels around the world, Elian is constantly exposed to both the beauty and ugliness which surrounds us in equal measure in every day life and invites the viewer to process these issues with him through his paintings.
