“Every component of the water cycle is vital to life on earth. While it is common to think of water in its liquid state, high in the sky clouds contain an enormous amount of the world’s pure water. The industrial activities carried out without measure and the waste that our unconscious way of life throws away, significantly damages everything around us. In his mural, Miguel Valiñas tackles the theme of water and atmospheric pollution, creating with his brushes a cloud that takes the form of a siren in the sky, like a magical being that flows through the atmosphere in the hope of bringing us the waters we need gently, while the city, naive about its existence, continues to be damaged by the exhalations of its economic activity.
An architect by profession, Miguel Valiñas travels the world like his ethereal mermaid, creating murals, disseminating ideas and promoting awareness.”
