ESCIF
is an internationally
acclaimed street artist from
Valencia, Spain known
for his large-scale public
murals. His work often draws
connections between the
image, the place around
it and the
actual surface
where the mural is painted.
In partnership with the 2011
Living Walls Conference,
Escif was invited to Atlanta
to produce his striking,
six-story-tall mural especially
for Elevate. The oversized,
floating red fire extinguisher
with the caption “Emergency
Only” brings color,
unexpected scale and
humor to the downtown
Artwork with a political message is a rare occurrence in Atlanta, which makes it all the more exciting to see artist Escif’s painting of a fire extinguisher in bright red on the side of a Pryor Street parking deck. The artist has inscribed the iconic yellow stars of the Chinese flag onto the red extinguisher, and offered the inscription at the base “Emergency Only,” suggesting the Asian superpower should only be unleashed when all else fails. http://www.accessatlanta.com/news/entertainment/celebrity-news/elevate-reaches-great-heights/nQywd/
