“I decided to...paint houses blowing away because that is what you see while inside the train.” — Cinta Vidal
THE ARTISTS: Barcelona-based artist and illustrator Cinta Vidal Agulló defies gravity and architectural conventions to create encapsulated scenes of intersecting perspectives. Cinta has been drawing since childhood. When she was 16 she started an apprenticeship at Taller de Escenografia Castells Planas in St. Agnès de Malanyanes, where she learned the scenography and backdrop trade from Josep and Jordi Castells. On her approach to illustration she says, “never stop experimenting.”
THE ART: A dimensional, surrealist 25 ft high x 30 ft long depiction of houses tumbling in the air.
THE STORY: “The mural is about the movement of the train. I decided to paint houses blowing away because that is what you see while inside the train. I also did a bit of research about the architecture of the area to paint similar buildings from Napa. I added a green background to reference the beautiful natural surroundings.”
THE PLACE: 800 Vallejo Street on the back wall of the Napa Auto Parts building.
