Spanish muralist Aryz recently spent few days in Linz, Austria, working on this gigantic piece titled Overprotected. The painting of the mural was organized by Bubbledays, a wakeboard, music, and streetart festival happening from the 13th to 14th of June, and was created in the Linz harbor area where the event will take place.

Using his signature palette of pastel colors, the Barcelona-based artist painted this massive image showing two characters in a hug & clinch posture. A bit simpler & cleaner than other works we’re used from him, this piece can be seen both as creepy and beautiful. While looking romantic and cute at first, the anime-like features of the characters, the violence of their pose, and the mean look in the eyes of one of them, give this impressively huge mural an uneasy feeling.
