  • The piece is entitled Niru Bai Mausu (Japanese for nil by mouth) and focuses on the idea that, in certain cultures (especially in the past), a women should be seen and not heard. The blue represents inner security and confidence, as does, the girls stare. In spite of the fact that the headscarf covers half her mouth, the blue represents, in color psychology, communication and speaking the truth. The blocks of blue represent the fact that without a voice a woman, no matter how pretty or alluring, is incomplete.

    Fin DAC makes large murals of beautiful women, taking a new turn on 19-century art movement The Aesthetics. He believes, so did the Aesthetics, that art should not be political or social, it should only serve a purpose of bare embellishment of mundane lives. The purpose of art is to bring the beauty to the world. Being that the leading idea in street art is the social and political engagement, Fin DAC chose his theme to be a bit different. His murals depict beautiful women, with eye masks, who wear gorgeous clothes and elegant makeup. He named his style Urban Aesthetics, in which he combines the modern urban stencil art and traditional art of portrait. (via WideWalls)
