La vida es otra cosa

Artwork created by Escif in a huge part of an official Center for Art and Design studies. In this work Escif criticizes the current dependence that the mobile phone represents for many people. His message is clear: life is something else.
Note about the artist: Nacho Magro Huertas is the real name of Escif. Born in the Carmen neighborhood of Valencia, one of the most popular neighborhoods in the city's historic quarter, Escif is often considered as the "Valencian Banksy." Active since 1996, his "interventions" (which is what he calls his urban works) are a social criticism on issues such as unemployment, the economic situation, political scandals or consumerism in general. His workarts stands out for its low color variety, using in general only gray scales and some shade similar to brown. For Escif, his painting is a reflection of how the world and society are today. He usually accompanies his works with very short messages written in capital letters.
