Budapest, Kazinczy u. 35, 1075 Magyarország
Kicking off this year’s Színes Város Festival celebrating street art in Budapest, a young Portuguese artist recently enhanced a wall by Kőleves kert with a vivid mural. The new multi-story painting by Akacorleone is a colorfully abstract mural to revamp the almost 100-square-meter firewall overlooking Kazinczy Street’s most happening stretch – and this is only the first of many new murals that will soon be enlivening buildings across Budapest.
Based on the world of Hungarian folk tales, but also bearing the signature style elements of the artist, the painting depicts the story of Jankó Holló, a poor young fellow who sets out on a journey of discovery. The other notable characters in the tale that help Jankó out during his many adventures – such as the ant, the raven, the fish, and some whistles – can all be seen on the wall, arranged around the main figure of the composition. The overlapping shapes and the cluttered layout represent a sea of adventures, while the raven perched at the top of the picture symbolizes the main character reaching his destination. The vivid, cheerful colors exude unwavering hope and endurance.
