The crowding also helps in that it discourages focusing on one thing at a time, which conventional art exhibitions tend to foster. Few works in “City as Canvas” hold up to such extended scrutiny. These artists were more oriented to the commercial aesthetics of graphic design and illustration, and it shows in facile technique and the prevalence of extroverted style over personal substance.
Maria Mulata Bird by: yurikamdc https://www.facebook.com/Yurikauno It was inspired by a children’s story told to me by one of the ladies that made the festival posible, and a resident of Getsemaní-Cartagena-Colombia. ” Stories of grandmothers tell that in ancient times , in tropical lands of breezes and cheers, there was a small village , a place where not only men lived, but also exotic animals , including a full color and a beautiful singing bird, that bird had the name of ” Maria Mulata “. Once , by accident, the town got envolved in flames, and the trapped people cried for help. The big and radiant energy bird gathered in herd, and began helping humans, carrying them, from one side to the other, all he could in his peak . In that coming and going through the fire, the smut covered his beautiful colors. The village was saved thanks to the help of the birds. Since that, the Maria Mulata remained black , lost its colors and its sweet song . But when the sun is bright and sits on top a Maria Mulata people can see up close all the bright colors that have accompanied it always… “ We must not lose these knowledge , we must recover these traditional stories of the region, we must not lose our memory, our strength and faith. Getsemaní resist together. more pics: http://yurikauno.tumblr.com/tagged/mariamulata
