“About when they came back” screenprint by 3ttman comes after the homonymous wall the artist painted in Granollers. This Barcelona’s suburb is extremely rich in terms of racial diversity, here you can feel the vibrance of the different cultures and the energy of the youth all around the place. In a conversation with the local community, 3ttman decided to focalize his attention on the lockdown situation. In the background, you can see the architecture of the city’s hospital which symbolizes the disease/death and what happened behind the walls when we were all out of sight. In the foreground, there are four animals that seem to be watching us and what is going on inside the hospital…“Maybe they are just witnesses of what happened to the human race during the quarantine but I prefer to think that they represent our totems who are taking care of the sick ones. Anyway, the mural, and so the print, has been realized as a reminder of that sense of hope some of us experienced during the forced quarantine when seeing nature flourishing as humans stepped back. Now that it seems that things are slowly getting back to normal, we must not forget about that hope and try to protect nature at all cost.”
