Breaking the Line

HyuroSeptember 2019


Stavanger, Norway

In 2019, Argentinian artist Tamara Djurovic, also known as Hyuro, produced two pieces of artwork in Stavanger with Paint The Change, an international project that creates local and global street art campaigns to highlight social justice issues and to create opportunities for community outreach. In a response to the unfolding refugee crisis across Europe, Hyuro painted this stirring piece of two extended arms, crossing over a centre border from opposing directions.

Like in much of her surrealist figurative work, there is a lack of identifying features, including faces, allowing the viewer to project themselves into her work. This allows for a chain to form between her art and her audience - Hyuro’s work calls for out for empathy and immersion, giving us all space to imagine who else we could be.
