The Monstrous Murals of Saturno

by Andy SmithPosted on

Barcelona-born muralist Saturno has a knack for the monstrous. The artist recently brought his lush and startling style to walls in London, Los Angeles, and recently, Miami, alongside the annual festivals nearby. His work blends pop culture with a more classical sense of refinement. (Top photo by Drone_Exelbierd.)

His biography offers insight into his sensibility: “As a child, near his home, he would contemplate the illuminated signs announcing the weekly films which because of his young age he was unable to watch. This circumstance combined with the mysticism of the seventh art provoked his imagination and this takes him on a journey of no return, towards the lobby of the cinema. Once inside, surrounded by all the film art, he is able to hear the whispers of those “prohibited” films, inducing day after day hundreds of film posters passing in front of his eyes. It’s just about here when he discovers his fascination for fantasy, terrorific and sci-fi genres.”
