Sistine Chapel Walls
In his first large scale work, “Sistine Chapel Walls,” Mosquera uses all of the exterior walls of the Farside Gallery as the canvas for his graffiti paintings. He chose to paint religious concerns that are ubiquitous in his artwork; this time, the concerns are closely associated with his admiration for Michelangelo and his multiple visits to the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.
Arturo E. Mosquera is a self-taught artist from Memphis, Tennessee. He studied printmaking at Manchester College and is interested in graffiti. In 2016, Mosquera exhibited in the group show “LIKE IT OR NOT” at the Farside Gallery in Miami.
