Faith Moves Mountains

EscifSeptember 2011


Stavanger, Norway

Spanish street artist Escif employs subtle colour and simple lines to create contemporary murals with a humorous twist, often addressing social issues. The artist frequently uses repetition in the work to create ambiguous compositions that leave room for interpretation. This mural created for Nuart shows two mountaintops with the text "Faith moves mountains … if you want it".

The artist has been painting on the streets of Valencia for decades and continues to create streets work to engage with the public's minds. He is a vocal proponent of keeping street art on the street where it best retains its power and meaning.
