CCC's Street Art Contest #132 - A video game on the wall!
Here again posting in this community #StreetArt about a street mural that I have seen here around and I would like to join one more time this week's contest, CCC's Street Art Contest #132 hosted by @digi-me, thanks for the initiative! And thanks @heroldius too for being always present and supporting all this.
I keep seeing murals, curiously several, and I realize that there are many in this area and they all attract attention. And again on the Mediterranean coast in Spain and really on the coast, since from the avenue of the promenade itself, we find two large impressive murals. Yes, two, and they are very different from each other, different themes, styles and authors, I'll talk about the second soon...
Let's go with the first one, because we can say that it is funny. In general, the murals in the streets have some factors in common in addition to art, on the one hand, the message or theme, they all want to say something and also all of them in one way or another have a point of fun, because the creator has to have talent but he must also like doing what he does, and the rest of us enjoy seeing and admiring these gigantic, urban and original works of art that we find in our streets and cities, and throughout the world.
This particular mural is cheerful, or so it seems to me, because it doesn't have the same visual, it doesn't look like a specific painting or work, but rather it is distributed equally throughout the immense wall horizontally. And we realize that it looks like a video game! Those classic video games, of a lifetime, from our childhood, now we see it in big colors, off the screen, on a big wall.
And we follow a main character, the player who has the entire journey ahead of him, runs trying to get all the rewards, all the coins that adorn the wall of the building, going through all the paths, obstacles, ups and downs. Levels that take us to another level, and suddenly this mural transports us to another past time.
And it also connects us with the real, because in the upper right part, on the supposed screen-wall or façade, there are palm trees and a bright blue sky, just like it is out there, on that same street, simply looking to the other side, towards the palm trees and the sea, under almost the same blue sky. In fact, the day is clear and bright, perhaps the sun shines even too much because in all the photos its rays appear trying to also capture a certain part of the image's prominence.
It is difficult to capture everything well due to its huge dimensions and because it is curiously located in a very small and narrow street perpendicular to the avenue next to the promenade, you have to be attentive if a car passes, also in the sunlight that blinds us and despite all this, stop at take a good look at all the details of this stupendous mural.
We do not know if it has a specific title, I have not found more information, only that the work was made by the Spanish artist called Imon Boy, and that he has more works in other places. Possibly this one was created in 2018 because I have found the scarce information mainly in the following blog about murals in Valencia, "Valencia en murales".
So we were just amused by the whole mural and following the funny character on such a creative journey. We leave the screens, we go out into the street, we walk through the city, this time close to the sea and then we find a mural that seems to come from a screen, it's a video game!
Thanks for reading! Have a funny and original day.

That's a really cool mural. I look at it and try to figure out how the character got where he's at and how he will get to the next level. Where will the gray door take him next? Perhaps another street corner nearby on another building. 😊
Yeah jaja we can imagine the next level as a video game really... I didn't see many other buildings so who knows maybe he is inside that building 😁 Happy day!
