Dias de los Muertos
Amanda Valdes calls this piece “Day of the Dead,” inspired from the Mexican Dia de los Muertos festival, somewhat reminiscent of Halloween. That inspiration manifests in pale, macabre girls, with a smoke trail left from Anthony Hernandez‘s Steampunk mural beside hers. To her right is another tattooed character of Valdes, covered in flowers and skulls. The contrast of the flowers, as well as the character’s hair and lips pop off the white building.
As for working with the other artists on Eat Scene, Valdes couldn’t say enough.
“All of the artists are absolutely phenomenal,” Valdes continued as her voice lit up. “There was so much detail on every one of those walls.”
The piece above was curated by local artist EMO, who brought along six artists also familiar with West Palm Beach, including: Valdes, Hernandez, Hoxxoh, Remote, Ruben Ubiera and Kazilla to collaborate at the Eat Scene beer garden.
Mendienta was lenient with the artists as he knew of their capabilities, so he gave them all the freedom to do whatever they pleased on their wall.
“I wanted it to be a flowing piece,” EMO said. “I picked each artist knowing they would mold.”
