The task of art is to make the viewer reflect, to give birth to an emotion that can be fear, happiness, sadness or hope within the viewer of the work. The English artist and street artist Hayley Welsh succeeds perfectly in this intent through his surreal and dark murals.
Realized with a palette of greys and blacks, her works have as protagonists beings with animal features that often and willingly remember rabbits, with their ears lowered and huge shiny eyes. These little animals are a bit melancholic as if they had lost hope and were looking for their way home.
If Hayley Welsh’s message is not clear, each character is accompanied by a short motivational phrase such as “Your best adventure is you” or “Create your own rainbow”.
