There is no question that Valencia, Spain-based Escif has some of the most politically aware and intelligent street work being produced today. Each piece, even his simple sentences, have a backstory that pertains to the space and place in which he does the public work. This is case with his brilliant piece at All City Canvas in Mexico City, where Escif painted a huge mural on the side of the politically historic Chihuahua apartment building.

We have our Mexico City colleagues on the scene at the huge Public Art festival, All City Canvas, where an all-world roster of artists (Roa, Escif, Saner, Herakut, Vhils, Interesni Kazki, El Mac, Aryz, and Sego) are painting huge walls around the Mexican capital. After the first few days, some massively good works are being produced. Check out some of the progress shots we were able to capture.

Geographical near the borderline of Spain and Morocco is Melilla where Escif painted the following wall titled “Dematerialization.” We really enjoy when Escif uses a sequence of images to tell a short story, whether his intent is clear or not. The artist's work here is a comment on African refugees who often attempt to cross the Melila’s border fence into the European Union zone.

You thought we would go a couple days without posting some new Escif? Not going to happen with the amount of work the Spanish street artist has been producing lately. His newest work continues to address the current education cuts in Spain’s school system.

We took a yesterday off from posting any Escif work giving readers a break, however the Spanish artist has been actively painting walls daily and we feel every one has unique concept worth sharing. This one is tilted “Exfoliante de Polonio” or in English “Polonio Facial Scrub” and was painted in Valencia, Spain.

It’s the beginning of the week and their are new Escif murals to share. This newest piece was painted once again in his hometown of Valencia, Spain. Escif attempts to educate his viewers by stating the following about this piece, “Fallas are a popular festival with a strong tradition in Valencia city. The popular version of the origin of Fallas said that it were initiated by the carpenters’ guild. On the eve of the day of its patron St. Joseph, they burned in a purifying fire, chips and all that was left over, making cleaning of the workshops before entering the spring.”

Here, Escif describes how to prepare “Agua de Valencia” Cocktail (Spring versión): 1) We take a bottle of Champagne (preferably French and expensive), filled with fuel, motor oil, vodka and gin… We dress it with grated orange peel...

By now, we would imagine that if you lived in Valencia, Spain the work of Escif and Hyuro would be familiar. From the amount of walls we see these two paint, this city must be blanketed in their work. This new piece is titled “Primavera/ Verano” or “Spring/Summer.”
