This piece is part of an ongoing mosaic art series about City Art. I am captivated by how cities develop. In this mosaic, I was inspired by one of many slum areas in Caracas. Slums are spontaneous responses when people cannot afford housing. Its lack of formality and the absence of rules result in this melodic harmony of polychromatic boxes integrated into an intricate terrain imposed like a massive fortress before your eyes. Built with cement, steel-rebar and burnt-red bricks, houses are linked by tangles of electricity cables arching in the sky, creating a vibrant landscape with very complex perspectives.
