Dourone’s “Earth Migration” Mural for Roscella Bay Festival

by CaroPosted on

Spanish street artist Fabio Lopez, aka Dourone, was born and raised in Madrid’s countryside where he taught himself how to paint from an early age. His combined style of graphical illustration and surrealism developed from studying artists like MC Escher, Mohlitz Philippe, Jean Giraud “Moebius”, and Giovanni Battista Piranesi. Dourone defines his unique style as “Sentipensante”, named after a style invented by Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano. His latest mural was painted for the first Roscella Bay Festival which was held in La Rochelle, France last month. The wall was completed over the course of three days and portrays a beautiful migrant girl with a map of the world superimposed onto her face, and doves flying around her. Titled “Earth Migration”, the piece refers to the history of La Rochelle, which was one of the main ports for migrants traveling to French North America in the 17th century.
