As the flagship artist of new muralism, we invited Hyuro to imagine Bien Urbain’s line up with us. Hyuro’s wall paintings touch with modesty on the intimate and universal.Tension and softness are felt in her paintings where attitude and postures say much more than the eyes or face, often hidden or deliberately placed « off-screen » as if to highlight the palpable and sensitive. Her world is both disturbing and seductive. Through her murals, Hyuro offers us the deep thoughts and questions that cross her mind, with respect and a palpable affection. Each of them not only raises her sincere personal feelings, but also challenges our own sensitivity, revealing buried or repressed sensations, developing our imagination. Anyone can recognize themselves in the characters she makes. Like whispers, her murals try to tell us something… it’s up to us to interpret the messages according to our experience and our sensitivity.
