Edgeware Road Art, Enmore

Edgeware Road, Enmore – Street Art, Sydney – Artist; Peque

 

Hailing from Mexico and now residing in Sydney, Peque generates Murals and Illustrations throughout Sydney and Sydney’s Inner West. Peque completed this Edgeware Road, Enmore Mural ‘La Seranata’ in July 2015. Commissioned by the Inner West Council as part of the Perfect Match program, “The artwork depicts a typical Mexican landscape with the iconic scene of a Mariachi serenading the senorita he loves. The tradition of Dia de los Muertos is represented in the figures as the Artist offers a whimsical reverence for death, underscored by a celebration of life”

“‘We know that death is a certainty in life, something that will come to all of us when our time comes and we hope for a beautiful and tranquil death.’ – Peque”

The composition pays tribute to Mexican maestros such as landscape Artist Jose Maria Velasco, Illustrator Jesus Hel-guera and printmaker Jose Guedalupe Posada
