argentinean born hyuro creates mysterious murals, paintings, and drawings all over the world, each new piece often taking her from valencia, spain, where she is based. she exhibits in france, italy, austria and takes part in festivals across the world including the nuart festival (norway) and the renexera fest in galicia (spain).
suggesting a message but leaving the interpretation up to the viewer, hyuro creates artworks in which the human body is the central focus. often depicting women, portrayed alone or in a group, she uses soft colours which capture a delicacy in her subjects. they wear clothes that recall a time when women were limited to the house, offering a speculative comment on the patriarchy where it is relevant. yet, beyond any gender-specific criticism, hyuro seems to not only focus on the general complexities of human beings but also her personal experiences.
‘hyuro doesn’t paint on the streets. I am not interested to know about her origins, nor when she was born … I do not care where she comes from, let alone where she goes’, a statement on the artist reads. ‘the interesting thing from hyuro is hyuro, here and now. everything else will always come over. her work is intimate and very personal. her universe, disturbing and seductive. her language is honest and forthcoming. her head are her hands and her paintings a gift for the streets of the city. in her work, hyuro, does not speak about her… talks to her. she uses the wall as a mirror in which constantly seeks and is, in this process, that painting rescues the echo of that conversation with herself.‘ discover more of djurovic’s monumental work on facebook and instagram.
