pixel pancho’s work forms part of a surreal narrative where robotic figures are amalgamated with the natural world in a semi-dystopian universe. for this mural at wynwood walls, the artist addresses the theme of ‘fear less’ though a complex composition that illustrates three small robots walking away from a giant character towards the golden gates of ‘freedom’. the large human-like figure is a blend of greenery and machinery, and gestures towards the gate’s opening. the complex scene forms part of pixel pancho’s interconnected structure of stories that inform his murals, paintings, and sculptures.
