Based in Madrid, Taquen is an artist who creates murals on city walls and illustrates them beautifully with figurative drawings. We can see birds or people, for example, in a soft color palette. Taquen is interested in the changes, the movement and the relationship between human beings and the environment in this process. “I understand urban art as a tool for positive transformation and social cohesion, understanding space as something shared and that we must respect”, he explains in a statement on his website. His work is based on his own experience and relationship with nature, where he spends most of his time. For him, the human being is part of nature and does not understand a society where he is distant or separated from it. “I use natural elements to speak metaphorically about human problems, our relationships, feelings, instincts…”, he precise.
