The Street Art duo of Julieta XLF and Bifido continues to produce works that blend together their strongest individual talents with elements of photorealism and decorative painting organically combined. This time we are in Requena, Spain and looking at the reflection of a girl looking at herself as a free woman, say the artists. “Le Baccanti”, from the Greek tragedian of classical Athens named Euripides, features such a figure unaware perhaps of the possibility of her own emancipation.

Say the artists; “The wine, represented by some grape berries held in her hands, serves as chance of something else; the richness of the land and unconsciousness of one’s ability to achieve full awareness. The girl, split, looks at her previous self. She is a free woman, able to be whatever she is, without compromise. A woman as fierce as the surrounding landscape that she holds strongly, making herself part of it.”
