Wall Paintings - Murals by Camilo Arias
Murals are important in that they bring art into the public sphere and dramatically impact, whether consciously or subconsciously, the attitudes of passers-by. Camilo has added his own perspective in different walls and scenarios in Panama City, Barcelona, Hellissandur, and El Cairo.
See the murals below...
THE "Bárður" MYTH - Hellissandur, Iceland
I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Iceland and leave my artistic mark on its walls in 2018. Through a local project to make Hellissandur the capital of street art in Iceland. More than 20 artists worldwide were summoned to fill the walls of this small town with color and rescue some abandoned buildings. More than 25 murals were painted in different locations in a month, and mine was one of the largest, and mine was one of the largest one. Each artist received one of the local stories, and for my fortune, my theme was the most important cultural level in the area, The Myth of Bárður. He was the settler of this region, half a troll and half a man. His father was half a titan, but his mother was human. Bárður came to Iceland in the 9th century and gave the peninsula its name, Snjófellsnes peninsula, both words "snær" and "snjór" mean snow in Icelandic. Despite the harsh cold conditions, it was an enriching and joyful experience painting this project. The residents were very pleased with our designs. The event was so welcome that it became an annual art festival. I hope to return another time!

Miró Mirando - Barcelona, Spain
This is the artist footprint I left in Barcelona on my first visit there. I was amazed by the city and the amount of art you can find in every corner. Many have asked me why the hands are in an opposite angle. Can you guess why? Actually, my hands are handling the binoculars, and I show Miró my vision of his natal town.

Urraca - Panama City
The Urraca aborigine was a brave warrior that defended his land and culture from the Spanish conquistadores when they obliterated everything. His eyes reflect his willingness to die a free man rather than to live as a slave. Two different coloured worlds surround the piece, denoting the cultural clash that encounters produced.

Irish-London Fusion - Panama City
Pips is a bar in Panama City wanting its identity to be like that of any classic London or Irish Pub. In the scene, an Irish Leprechaun shares his joy with an English Bulldog, who joins him in his celebration. At the same time, the artist merges both worlds through colours and textures.

Scubotopus - Cairo, Egypt
I made this mural in a private apartment in Cairo, Egypt. My Egyptian friends are professional divers and they went crazy with this idea. But what they didn't know is that I had another surprise for them, the mural shines in the dark! So now you can enjoy it no matter what time it is.

Swell Dancer - Panama City
This was the first mural ever painted in Panama City. A flamenco dancer stirs the sea waves, as a Colombian sailor navigates through her veil. The jellyfish escape the bustle floating towards space, adding more surrealism to the scene.
