- O’Mighelo (Miguel Anxo Calvo)
Through his intervention on 38, Vila de Negreira street, the local multidisciplinary artist, Miguel Ángel Calvo, nicknamed O’Mighelo, wanted to reflect his vision of the cycle or “circus” of life. In the author’s own words: “Towards freedom, in search of freedom (almost always…towards freedom); whether we want it or not, the fact is that more often than not, we are unaware and show no regrets and almost without punishment, streams of blood are poured in its name, “freedom”; freely, and without worrying at all about other people’s tears of blood. Thus, the theme of this mural is the struggle in the search for freedom, which sometimes comes at a price and even costs life and a loads of blood. The figure that pretends to be an acrobat hanging from a thread represents the path of human beings in life, accompanied by the notion of uncertainty that sometimes entails the persecution of a new life, with the ignorance of destiny, hence the question marks that can be seen around the “acrobat”. The concept of life is represented by the umbilical cord, which, held by two children, is connected at the other end to a heart-shaped wire of thorns, as a symbol of the life-death connection in this context of uncertainty (balloons).
