Said Dokins Paints 1000 m2 Mural in Germany
Said Dokins is currently on European tour and stopping in selected cities to paint murals on his journey. Whenever this artist is in town he likes to go big at every and any opportunity. The latest mural in the heart of Munich is the biggest in the city and a gift from this master painter.
‘This piece is a reflection on time, in it’s multiple dimensions. On one side, the concept of cyclic time, represented by a great circle, denominated by Dokins “Chalchihuite”, related with jade stone, preHispanic symbol of protection, water, vital cycles and vegetation. On the other side, he approaches the concept of time as a current situation, present time, where armed conflicts and wars produce extreme situations in diverse places on Earth. Dokins reproduces in his own unique style a poem by the Syrian writer Adonis (Ali Ahmad Said) about time, where the author does a deep reflection on Syrian War and human condition. For Said Dokins, the subject of refugees is very important within European context, especially in Germany and in Bavarian community because, despite the creation of several programs for refugees in Munich, due to the political and social situation in the city, the segregation between these communities is very pronounced. This mural is a call for diversity, flexibility an openness of society to migratory flows and to the new time that is arising in Munich’.
