We already shared some photos with you of a large mural El Mac worked in while in town for his show at Galerie Wolfsen (covered), It turns out that was only the tip of the iceberg as the LA-based street artist also worked on a triptych piece for his fans in Denmark entitled Purity of Heart, taken from the popular book by Søren Kierkegaard – Purity of Heart is to Will One Thing. These three murals grace three sides of a tower in front of a recently renovated orphanage and was commissioned by Martin Nielsen.
“A Providence watches over each man’s wandering through life. It provides him with two guides. The one calls him forward. The other calls him back. They are, however, not in opposition to each other, these two guides, nor do they leave the wanderer standing there in doubt, confused by the double call. Rather the two are in eternal understanding with each other. For the one beckons forward to the Good, the other calls man back from evil. Nor are they blind guides. Just for that reason there are two of them. For in order to make the journey secure, they must look both forward and backward.”
