- Alba Fabre (Alba Fabre Sacristán)
Alba Fabre is used to constructing poetic narratives from an open and inconclusive point of view. During her creative process, she focuses a lot on creating the color palette, a characteristic which is usually visible in her murals. Her work, located on Avenida da Milagrosa, introduces us to the intimacy of an anonymous couple, in a moment of union in which different ideas are secretly whispered, deconstructing certain roles of classical art and bringing them to our contemporaneity. The fragility, vulnerability and male sensitivity are opposed to the strength and integrity of the female figure, while their bodies merge to form a delicate and powerful image under a quick and precise brushstroke.
The artist herself also confesses that, while she was painting, she sometimes looked for inspiration in the mural that is located right next to hers, Blade Trinity by Iván Floro, Van Vúu. The theme of Joe’s watermelon was chosen before knowing that it would be placed in front of another mural about an anonymous couple, and in the end the two works establish a silent dialogue that was reinforced during the creative process.
