Colombian artist GLeo covers walls throughout the world with her brilliant murals, with figures often adorned with masks and other surreal embellishments. She emerged as a favorite muralist in her native South America, but she now brings these homegrown influences to stains everywhere. Much of her mural work is accomplished using brushstrokes, offering consuming textures.
“She uses only simple paint brushes and rollers for her works and skilfully creates highly imaginative in addition to vibrant work,” says the site I Support Street Art. “richly detailed, Gleo’s colorful scenes and fantastic creations catch and hold your attention, like hypnotic Chimera dancing in their urban landscapes.” The mural above was created “in honor of Francisco Jose de Caldas, Colombian who died defending the freedom of man and Latin American nature.”
