‘Cry For a Lost Earth - 5/8’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Kurar. The print is the number 5, from a limited of 8, and is signed and numbered by the artist.
French street artist Kurar uses his iconic stencil work to address twenty-first century political issues with a visual flare. Deploying his signature motif of childhood innocence, Kurar draws attention to the ills of consumer society, with deft, poetic sensitivity.
Like many of his prints, ’Cry For a Lost Earth - 5/8’ powerfully juxtaposes pockets of bright colour with a greyscale palette, for strong, visual prowess. The print depicts a child with colourful fairy wings, sadly clutching the globe as it melts into ribbons of bright paint.
On top of the earth, Kurar has added a factory, its chimneys pouring out billows of grey smoke, in a potent reminder of the toxic damage that humans daily commit against mother nature. Striking, compelling, and conceptually provocative, ‘Cry For a Lost Earth - 5/8’ is a paragon of urban political art.
