'SHAKTI ESPERERANZA' PHNOM PENH PART 2 GRAFFITI BY ANTHEA MISSY

'Shakti Esperanza' part 2 of my new #graffiti #mural in street 84 Phnom Penh - 11m x 3.5m.  While scrubbing the wall a substantial old and unstable piece of it fell apart. I love the brick hole effect integrated as an organic shape in the composition. For me another aspect of working outside is to use the natural elements as such without looking for too much perfection. In my opinion, it adds some character and authenticity - similar approach than in Bangkok where I used the mossy wall as background with the shade of the leaves. From the brick colour derived the choice of ochre yellow, as slightly faded shade to go with that vintage patina-inspired style. 
The presence of natural elements such as water or trees around the wall is certainly an important characteristic in my painting scheme, as well as an open sky. ☀️
