This year’s third edition of the Peruvian urban art festival organized by the “Lima Mural Project” collective is jam-packed with color and supported by the Municipality of Miraflores where four new large-format murals have been added to the city of Lima.

The smallest piece is a geometric abstract work that runs nine meters and three meters high. It is a sequence of lines performed by Nyeth, an artist who has been painting in the city for 24 years, working to improve its vulnerable areas and adapting his brush to urban typography.

In contrast to this, towering a respectable seventeen meters high and nine meters wide, Conrad Florez opts for a graffiti technique when stamping his (mainly psychedelic) vision on the walls of the city. Through the use of strong colors that transmit life and futuristic vibes, he has infused his canvas with a number of fantastical characters.

Next up, an even larger work over twenty-five meters high and along a fifteen-meter wide base, Dear Lozada has created a reinterpretation of the plant kingdom in abstract. The rectilinear images contained within the piece suggest a dialogue with the organic world, creating a balance that does not overstep the bounds of other, but rather complements surrounding elements in favor of harmony.

Finally, with overflowing forty-five meters of height and thirty meters wide, Edwin Higuchi Fernández (a.k.a Pésimo) decided to render an image of an indigenous mystic who treasures a heart in her hands with eyes closed. A possible representation that “seeing with the heart” is a way of recognizing the feelings and what is not seen with the naked eye.

With the addition of these works, the Lima Mural Project once again succeeded in populating the city with brand new creations that add to an imaginary landscape; where the literal and concrete become juxtaposed and harmonized with the ethereal and fantastic.
