We talked about Cinta Vidal a few years ago, focusing on her illustrations reminiscent of Escher’s paintings, where perspective is completely nullified. Today we’re back to talking about her because over the years Cinta has moved from paper to the walls of the city dedicating herself to street art, but without ever abandoning illustration and painting.
So some walls of the main cities of the world, from Los Angeles to Barcelona, up to Hong Kong, have been covered with floating objects, murals without perspective, but not without meaning.
In fact, each artwork follows a theme, some present an agglomeration of buildings, others of books, furniture, mattresses, streets and so on. Through this orderly chaos, Cinta offers the viewer her own personal vision of the world, giving back, in a certain sense, freedom to objects that losing their function can be everything, even decorative elements.
Moreover, the neutral backdrops create a sort of optical illusion, making passers-by believe that objects are literally falling on them, that they are coming off the wall and ready to land on the sidewalk.
