“The Void” by Sr. X in Croydon, London

Señor X is an eclectic artist from the small town of Gijon, mostly working with stencils. He is known as the Spanish Banksy because of his irreverent and ironic message. He wants to call the attention of the people making an impact in them through his art. Starting from a figurative language he communicates a subversive effect  by the insertion of provocative commentary and some disrespectful details. In this way, he reflects on the society and the manner of living encouraging to change the perception of our conformist world. In this artwork for Croydon he uses the iconography of vintage advertisements from the 1950’s and he plays with the double meaning of the word “void” as empty and as space opening a hole on the cosmos.
