After a couple of quiet months, Inti recently painted a new large piece in Marseille. La Madre Secular (The Secular Mother) was painted at the crowded Marche aux Puces commercial center in collaboration with the Galerie Saint Laurent as a part of their Street Art show.

Staying true to his signature color palette and use of symbols and patterns, the Chilean artist produced another piece that is stepping away from his earlier, cartoon-like characters. Using spray paint to create textures, tones and shades, he painted a piece that symbolizes the place where Mediterranean Europe and Northern Africa coexist under the premise of mutual respect in their religious and cultural differences. This is visually represented by separating the image into two parts – a colorful, vibrant and detailed section above a more expressive part painted using brown, desert-like tones.
