Colombian artist GLeo covers walls across the world with her vibrant murals, with figures often adorned with masks and other surreal embellishments. She emerged as a popular muralist in her native South America, but she now brings these homegrown influences to spots everywhere. Much of her mural work is accomplished with brushstrokes, offering absorbing textures.
“She uses just simple paint brushes and rollers for her works and skilfully creates highly imaginative as well as vibrant work,” says the website I Support Street Art. “Beautifully detailed, Gleo’s colourful scenes and fantastic creations catch and hold your attention, like hypnotic Chimera dancing in their urban landscapes.”
Recent murals have been completed in Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Belgium, and California. The mural above was created “in honor of Francisco Jose de Caldas, Colombian who died defending the freedom of man and Latin American nature.”
