A Social Commentary in Murals by Escif

Escif is a Spanish street artist whose work has also been popping up in Italy, France, and Canada. Unlike most street artists who uses loud, often clashing colors, Escif tends to use simple lines and subdued colors. It is the humorous and often direct commentary on sensitive social issues such as politics, capitalism, and the economy that makes Escif’s work stand out. For Escif, the message is far more important than the style. Escif is quoted saying: “I’m not looking for decorative paintings, I try to wake up viewers minds.”
