This June/July 2022, Chinese artist SATR have traveled all the way from her hometown of Guangzhou in China to Mannheim, Germany. SATR labored on her latest mural “Whisper” for the Stadt.Wand.Kunst mural pageant.
The large apartment building facade, pre-coated in a daring clean white was to be the basis of the charming mural. SATR, who produced her entry into the street art realm in 2013, has paved her exclusive path through the earth by merging animals, a limited but bold color palette of predominantly black, white, red, and incredibly number of other colors, and an partaking transparent design that has a ghostly smokey charm, in a technique that is reminiscent of Chinese brush portray accomplished in the road artwork way.
Originating from decades of experimentation with clear colours, her technique also reveals a refined understanding of equilibrium, efficiently making use of positive and unfavorable house in regard to the wall house she handles and that she leaves no cost of paint. An excellent operating method for her as she took the characteristics of the Montana BLACK, Montana GOLD and specifically the Montana GOLD Clear colors cans to their restrictions. Opaque and transparent carefully juxtapose with every single other in all her principles, with the major concentrate generally staying animals. Tigers, lions, eagles, and wolves, to title a number of, are all animals that have potent symbolic origins that discover their way into SATR artworks. For Stadt.Wand.Kunst, it was a panther and a leopard.
“Whisper”, the title of SATR’s SWK mural takes the viewer in different instructions. Questions are lifted the for a longer time a person ponders the mural. Why is a panther whispering to a leopard? Is this a reliable connection concerning the two animal breeds that we are looking at? And as the artist herself describes, “the mural exhibits human thoughts in the animal world”. A idea that is rarely lifted in artworks on the street. The neighborhood inhabitants of the Mannheim suburb Waldhof appeared on in amazement as the mural took form. However an additional milestone for SATR and the crew at SWK, taking international avenue artwork to new heights every single 12 months.
