I’ve had the good fortune to spend a fair amount of time in the fantastic city of Valencia, Spain, over the past few years and have greatly admired the vibrant street art that adorns much of the city’s casco antiguo.

The work of the prodigiously productive artist Escif stands out as particularly brilliant, never failing to bring out a range of mixed emotions and thoughts in me. I say ‘mixed’ because his work is often unsettling, but somehow remains playful and somehow almost joyous at times.
