On his Facebook page, Ever shared the story behind his mural:

“The neighborhood of “La boca” is born in the margin of Riachuelo, Buenos Aires. This neighborhood has the highest percentage of poverty of the city, also “La Boca” is the neighborhood with the highest percentage of renters in the Capital Federal, due to these social conditions there are also several community kitchens in the neighborhood where grandmothers and mothers takes care of children of other fathers and mothers.

More than 20 children eat in the community dining room ‘Comedor Communication pancita llena corazòn contento de la boca’, these children are called among them “brothers” are a big family that take care of each other.
Brian and Araceli are from different families but they take care one of each other. On the right you can see a graphic representation that compares the number of people who rents contrasted with the amount of owners.
This is a tribute to the present of the neighborhood and the future of “La boca”, an uncertain future conditioned by the gentrification of it.
If you want to contribute with the Shelter “Pancitas llenas corazon contento” follow this link, they need our help!”

NILS & Joachim Collab

Amazing collaborative piece in the Merksem neighborhood of Antwerp, Belgium by Belgian artist Joachim and Richmond (CA) based artist NILS.

The newly formed duo brainstormed for a couple days in order to come up with a concept that would blend their styles and techniques. In the end, they both managed to convey their asthetics and feelings in as equal a way as possible, without diluting the other.
NILS painted his signature black-and-white realistic portrait while Joachim came up with the unique mask painted in his characteristic style.
