Gorgeous New Mural in Ibiza, Spain

Irish urban artist Fin DAC has just completed this beautiful stencil work in Ibiza, Spain for the Urban In Ibiza festival. Called Alabaster at Nagai, it shows a gorgeous woman with a colorful parrot on her shoulder. (Also, notice the tiny green leaves or feathers surrounding them.) The artist, whose work we’ve featured a number of times on My Modern Met (see here and here) is known for creating these types of stunning murals. As he says, “In a short career, I have defined and perfected a paint style that ignores the accepted visual language of street art… I call it Urban Aesthetics – a modern-day take on the 19th century art movement.”

In looking through his photos, what I enjoy most are the ones that show each piece coming together. As Fin DAC precariously stands on a ladder, carefully spray painting each section, it gives you a deeper appreciation for his work, doesn’t it?
