At the Gallery Metropolitana (Barcelona) the large-scale mural, showed this time only large fragments of the body of an elephant.⠀

The project Marcha de Elefantes, is a metaphor of walking: the walk of all the wild animals and people which have lost their habitat and homes, uprooted and forced to leave their place of origin.⠀

The work began as a series of large-scale murals, but later the wall-based work was complemented by sculptures, videos and also performances.⠀
