Spanish based artist Hyuro just finished her latest mural a few days ago for this year’s The Crystal Ship event in Ostend, Belgium.

About The Mural

This untitled piece depicts a person trying to put back together a broken pottery, knowing that this urn will never return to its original state, and for how long it will hold together before it crumbles again.

The mural was inspired by the long-standing state in Belgium, an inconstant integral situation that lives every day to the limit of disintegration. Separated into two irreconcilable linguistic communities, with different cultures, along with old ethnic discords and other stories, are the roots of the crisis of this fragmented country. Researchers said that Belgium is a country with the longest time without consolidating its own government, and paradoxically enough, its capital, Brussels, is considered the capital of the European Union.

“This wall speaks about the fragility of life in all its aspects.¨ Said Hyuro.
