The unbridled joy and adventure of youth! Axel Void has captured both in this new street diptych in a Student dormitory in Seville, Spain, called Livensa Living Sevilla.
With roots in Haiti, Miami, and here in Andalusia, Void invites viewers to access their own childhood through distinct lenses that are at once nostalgic and contemporary by way of interpreting photographs of young daredevils jumping into the sea from the Carranza Bridge in Cádiz. The framing of the works is an outstanding example of working with the architecture to create works that strongly suggest much more to the surrounding community than their content.
Axel says that he hopes the murals inspire a certain spirit of the residence itself, connecting the future residents with the city and the students living there. With these new works, he is returning to his own roots, invoking the spirit of play and the natural and manufactured environment, highlighting the little things that enrich the quality of life in this region. The murals lie between Antonio Maura Montaner and Genaro Parladé streets.
