ESCIF at Public Art in Horsens, Denmark

July 10, 2013

Escif has been hard at work creating multiple murals in Horsens, Denmark for the Public Art Event. The artist created three notablydifferent pieces with varying concepts. Cleverly, one of the murals Escif painted was a mirror of the business facade directly to the right of it entitled  “Buruck Pizza.”  In another, the artist painted his characters performing self-defense techniques on a huge building which was named “How to Survive Horsens.”


 ”Buruck Pizza” (located in the center of the town):

-The organizers: "Hello, we are working on a public art project here in Horsens, so we are looking for some walls to interven. A selected group of international artists will arrive in town to create public works on various locations in the end of June."

-The owner of the building: "Sounds really interesting. The turkish pizzeria that just opened in the adjacent premises is not the most beautiful image for my building... you know! So I´m sure that some nice reknown artists can equilibrate this."

-The organizers: "Sounds good, sir!" 

”How to survive Horsens” (located at the Port):
Horsens have had a really bad reputation in Denmark. In the 1980s-90s people linked Horsens with social problems, violent people and crime - it didn't really help Horsens' image that Horsens State Prison housed some of the worst criminals since 1853 that had a tendency to stay in city when they got out jail.Photos via
