Not your ordinary mural, I Mural – from the series Reduccion objetiva orquestada (2016-2021) – is an art installation by Gabriel Rico. The site Artsy.net says the following:

II Mural presents a series of commonplace objects and a handful of arrows (similar to the if and only if arrows in positional logic) pictured on the white expanse of the wall. The link between these volumes and the graphite symbols is puzzling. And though we cannot clearly decipher his general codes, they are nonetheless eloquent and intuitively legible. A Husserlian epoch is at play where the material nature and physical force of ‘things’ manifests without intervention. The symbols of if and only if are logical connectives more difficult to assimilate and connect with colloquial language. Here, they serve to make ‘connections’ between the objects, linking these products and suggesting a certain type of value. In reality, there is no logical–rational meaning and they produce only the effect of absurd connection.

On display in Museum Voorlinden.

This mural was sent to me by an opera singer who saw all of her planned performances cancelled. As did do many other artists. The Dutch government has allocated €300 million to help all artists. Whereas their real damages in terms of lost income due to cancellations is at least four times that.

Courtyard Mural 3 • Monday Mural

This Cuban Courtyard Mural, for Monday Mural, 23 March, is an attempt by the artist to make something out of these otherwise blind walls. It is a tribute o the Cuban poet Bonifacio Byrne, after whom this street was named. Many streets have both a name and a number; most also have two names, one pré- and one post-revolution. This Calle 79 is also called Calle Contreras, though locals still refer to it as Calle Bonifacio Byrne.
