Here are new beautiful new walls by Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada.
The wall shown above, “Yousif Manama Bahrain,” was made in Bahrain as part of Al Riwaq Art Space’s Alwan 338 festival. The portrait of one of Bahrain’s traditional fishermen is part of Rodríguez-Gerada’s Identity series. What I did not realize until now about the murals in that series is that they are temporary pieces, washing away in the rain. Here’s a timelapse of the piece being drawn and then fading away:

Rodríguez-Gerada also recently painted this permanent mural in Buenos Aires, Argentina in memory of his father-in-law:
