Daily Life in our Daily Lives
Evan Pricco (US) in conversation with Hyuro (AR)
Hyuro joins Juxtapoz Editor-in-chief Evan Pricco to discuss her journey and the message behind her poetic public art works.
Place, space and time are themes in the work of Argentina-born, Valencia-based artist Hyuro. Best-known for her painterly compositions that combine vernacular depictions of daily life, Hyuro’s murals serve as reflections on both individual and collective identities. In her recent works, Hyuro portrays a series of characters undergoing tasks typically associated with the role of homemaker, literally and figuratively taking the ‘inside out’ in a subtle commentary on the patriarchal and capitalistic systems of power at play in our society.
