Spanish artist Taquen recently worked on a new mural in Gien, France. The mural entitled “Eau de Loire” is located on a water reservoir of 1,400 square meters which is one of the many that can be seen in the town of Gien, flat lands that need high places to store water and be able to distribute this. These towers are over 35 m high. This project is organized and managed by Urban Art Agency during the Festival Label Valette in Gien, France.
Water has always been synonymous with life. Human beings developed the first civilizations along the great rivers. The town of Gien is located on the banks of the Loire, the second in France, where ospreys, common terns or gray herons are some of the many species that coexist, live and benefit from its resources, like the inhabitants of Gien.
A fresco that does not stop, that turns, an infinite cycle. Neither beginning nor end.
Taquen ia is an artist based in Madrid, he graduated in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid. Interested in the changes, movement and the relationship between humans and the environment during this process. He sees urban art as a tool for positive transformation and social cohesion, understanding space as something shared and that we must respect.
