    Old Family Photos as Murals by Mohamed L’Ghacham

    One manifestation of urban art I love the most is, without a doubt, murals art because it breaks with the aesthetics of the environment, embellishes the gray cosmopolitan landscape and, in many cases, plays with timelessness. The murals, which turn the spaces offered by the cities into canvases, can be a contrast of immeasurable beauty if they have an air of classic or retro art. The murals painted by Mohamed L’Ghacham are windows to an immediate past in a present that passes at the speed of light. The paintings of this Moroccan, and Catalan of adoption, are full of characters from decades that have passed recently and in which we…

    A German Circus replaces Captive Animals by Holograms

    The use of animals in circus, a sad spectacle for young and old alike, is well on the way to becoming history.
