"I want to connect to the people that are going through this transition. You’re changing when you’re going through the consulate…your life is changing." —Marela Zacarías

New DALeast mural in Warsaw, Poland
Chinese-born, South Africa-based artistDALeast was recently in Poland painting a new mural for the Street Art Doping mural festival in Warsaw. This is one of the few murals he has painted as of late, as he has been focusing on studio work this year. DAL’s distinctive style evolved from his effort to paint large pieces without using much paint, a technique he came up with back in his homeland. As time went on, this technique became his unique, recognizable signature.
