Streets: Evoca1 (Vienna)

Dominican artist Evoca1 was recently invited to Austrian capital by Inoperable Gallery to create one of his murals.

Working on a large building in Vienna, the piece comments on a series of flak towers that Hitler ordered to be constructed in Germany and Austria to defend against air attacks and serve as shelters back in the 1940s. These buildings are still […]

The concept of this campaign is based on creating a portrait of a homeless person in the public space. The artist then adds a unique QR code next to the work, which leads to a video of an interview with the homeless person as well as […]
